Elvin spanned these two ideas of time. He was a master of sequential time, but he could also expand the now into a very wide beat.
Playing with Elvin was very relaxing because the beats felt long. There seemed to be eternities before the next beat would arrive. No need to hurry. No need to stress. No anxiety. And when the beat arrived, it was a huge wave that pulled you ahead. Being around Elvin was to experience Kairos.
