The Ultimate is an album by American jazz drummer Elvin Jones recorded in 1968 and released on the Blue Note label. The Ultimate features Elvin Jones on drums, Joe Farrell on saxophones and flute, and Jimmy Garrison on bass.
Newly remastered for vinyl as part of an overall Blue Note 75th anniversary vinyl reissue campaign spearheaded by current Blue Note Records President, Don Was.
"This is one of Joe Farrell's finest recordings... Farrell is in consistently creative form but Garrison's occasional solos and Jones's polyrhythmic accompaniment are also noteworthy." -Scott Yanow, allmusic.com
