The Career Of Jack DeJohnette

Sep 6, 2015

Jazz Unlimited for Sunday, September 6 will be “The Career of Jack DeJohnette.”  Drummer Jack DeJohnette has been one of the major drummers in jazz since 1965.  Born in Chicago, he was an early member of the AACM and played with Charles Lloyd, Miles Davis, Bill Evans, and Keith Jarrett as well as leading his own groups.  He was one of the first drummers to use rock rhythms in a jazz context.  DeJohnette will be heard tonight with his own groups, Keith Jarrett, Betty Carter, Jackie McLean, Chick Corea, Jerry Hahn, Don Byron, Charles Lloyd, D.D. Jackson, McCoy Tyner, Gonzalo Rubalcaba, Miles Davis, Michael Brecker and an AACM reunion with Henry Threadgill, Roscoe Mitchell and Muhal Richard Abrams.”

The Slide Show has my photographs of some of the musicians heard on this show.

This Archive of the show will be available until the morning of September 14, 2015.
