Ravel "Bolero" - Morton Gould Orchestra
Beethoven "Emporor Concerto" (final movement) - Stokowski, American Symphony Orchestra; Glenn Gould, piano.

(From Folio) Elayne Jones is one of the most prominent percussionists in the United States orchestral music scene. She was chosen personally by Leopold Stokowski to work with his American Symphony Orchestra upon its founding. Jones is also one of the few Black orgestral musicians holding a first-chair position, and when recently she was fired by the San Francisco Symphony, allegedly for musical reasons, the Bay Area community (including many musicians and critics) were convinced that racism was at the base of the action.
