Happy 75th Jack DeJohnette!

8 posts in this topic

Happy birthday, indeed!  Mr. DeJohnette has played with EVERYBODY, and he's produced an awful lot of great sets as leader and co-leader.

Wow. Was just talking with Alvin Fielder about Jack. Alvin recalls playing in Jack's piano trio in Chicago in the 1960s.

Happy birthday to one of my all time favorites.  "Hudson" is killer.  I was talking with Antonio Sanchez the other day, once years ago he went to Jack's house for a night and they had a jam with Jack on acoustic bass!  He said he did his best Charlie Haden impression.

Hard to believe he's 75.  He seems perpetually young.  Happy birthday!

In September, he'll be on an album of microtonal jazz with Phillipp Gerschlauer on alto, Dave Fiuczynski on guitar and Matt Garrison.  It's really a trip, to my knowledge it's the first fully microtonal album Jack's participated in.  On RareNoise.
