Jack DeJohnette is an American drummer, percussionist, pianist and composer who has worked with Miles Davis, Sonny Rollins, Bill Evans, Betty Carter and Stan Getz, among many, many others.
He’s probably best known for his work as a member of the Keith Jarrett, Gary Peacock, Jack DeJohnette Trio, but for most of his career, he has ranged far and wide across the jazz spectrum, and in 2009 won a Grammy Award for Best New Age album, with Peace Time.
DeJohnette is in Tokyo tonight through Thursday at the Blue Note, leading the Jack DeJohnette Trio, which also features saxophonist Ravi Coltrane and bassist Matthew Garrison.
I interviewed DeJohnette when he was here last summer with pianist Keith Jarrett and bassist Gary Peacock on the 30th anniversary tour of their Standards Trio, and this episode is a rebroadcast of that interview.
