Young lions who have dared to join Jones often come across as rookies compared to the master's challenging and powerful drumming. Even saxophonist Ravi Coltrane, son of John, served a kind of apprenticeship playing with the Jazz Machine early on. But in the latest incarnation, band members, especially trombone player Delfeayo Marsalis and saxophonist LaBarbera, are stalwarts who have played with Jones for some time. "If they're playing with me, I'm the drummer, that's all," laughs Jones. "But I'm also the band leader, and naturally I understand that responsibility. I exercise it in a way that's inspiring rather than intimidating."
