Elvin Jones first came to the attention of a large body of jazz listeners through his complex, pioneering work with the John Coltrane quartet of the early 1960s. Since then he has consistently led his own adventurous units-- one of a handful of drummers (Art Blakey and Max Roach are others) to achieve longevity at the helm of small jazz groups. This is where it began: his first album as a leader. It doesn't really indicate the directions he would take-- the players include his brothers Hank and Thad, and the classic Basie-ites Frank Wess and Frank Foster-- but it's a highly musical debut that makes quite clear what a broadly-based, skilled, and sensitive artist Elvin has always been

Back to the basics : an aviation solution to counterinsurgent warfare by Art Davis( Book )

5 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This study focuses on the current global war on terrorism as a conflict against insurgents who attack U.S. power through asymmetric means. Of late, these individuals have selected as a primary target the military and civilian convoy operations in Iraq and, to some extent, Afghanistan. By examining past examples of the use of air power in counterinsurgent warfare, this study sheds light on the United States' current failings in both equipment and doctrine as it wages this type of war. The French used low-technology aircraft -- World War II-vintage A-1 and T-6 fighters -- in Algeria to attack insurgent forces and defend ground troops. Well adapted to the environment as well as effectively deployed and employed, these aircraft helped contain and defeat the insurgents. In Vietnam, the United States employed A-1s and T-28s -- aircraft with a proven track record in this type of war and ideally suited to training the South Vietnamese air force. The United States should rethink its inventory of aircraft devoted to counterinsurgent war by considering possible replacements for the A-1. It should also reevaluate the manner of employing these assets by locating them with the ground forces they support. The technology that would meet the needs of future limited conflicts would have the following characteristics: (1) off-the-shelf technology, (2) long-range and loiter capability, (3) short takeoff and landing (STOL) capability, (4) ability to operate from austere airfields, (5) diverse weapons-carrying capability, (6) good navigation and fire-control systems, (7) good pilot visibility, (8) speed and maneuverability at low-to-medium altitudes, and (9) the ability to absorb ground fire with a high degree of survivability."--Abstract
