Jack DeJohnette is one of the finest jazz drummers of all time. In a career that spans over half a century, he's been the percussionist of choice for a veritable who's who of jazz giants - Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Ornette Coleman, Herbie Hancock to name but a few – and he himself received a coveted Jazz Masters Award. He's also a hugely respected composer and leader of a series of bands that reflect the acoustic/electric language of contemporary jazz, and always sounds as fresh as tomorrow.
'DeJohnette's tone, time and masterful construction of rhythmic constructs— as polyrhythmically complex as it gets or as simple and perfect as a single ride cymbal—push-and-pull his band mates throughout. DeJohnette's signature is all over an exhilarating set that, for 65 minutes, is the next best thing to having been there.'
