Jack DeJohnette, Made in Chicago (ECM)

70 posts in this topic

I decided to put this here instead of in the main ECM thread because I'm guessing the interest will be more general - but in January, ECM will be releasing a 2013 live recording of a quintet with Jack, Muhal Richard Abrams, Roscoe Mitchell, Henry Threadgill and Richard Larry Gray as a 50th anniversary tribute to the AACM (with compositions by Jack, Muhal, Roscoe, Henry as well as some collective improv). It's live so some of Manfred Eicher's more controversial production choices should be less less disruptive, I'm guessing.

The bassist is the excellent Larry Gray. That lineup sounds like a winner.

This is from the Chicago Jazz Festival. I was there and am curious to hear how it sounds as a cd.

How did it sound as a performance, Chuck? (If you don't mind me asking, of course!)

It was very fine as a performance - what I would expect from those folks. I am just curious about the way it will be programmed.

I do know Jack was delighted after the performance.

Ah! Makes sense.

Apparently some of the performances from the concert are online here.

Jack had people with video equipment and conducted interviews with all the participants. He wanted everything documented.

Is this basically a blowing session or something more interesting?

Terrific and thanks. I was at the Chicago Jazz Festival for this. Re-listening to the music made my night.
