Interview: drummer, percussionist, pianist and composer Jack DeJohnette, Part 1

Newport Jazz Festival

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. In fact, the list of jazz greats DeJohnette hasn’t played with is much shorter than the list of his collaborators.

DeJohnette was in Tokyo recently with pianist Keith Jarrett and bassist Gary Peacock on the 30th anniversary tour of their Standards 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.

This year, DeJohnette’s longtime record label, ECM, released a box set collecting the first four albums of his ‘Special Edition’ band, recordings that date from 1979 to 1984, and the most recent album released by the Standards Trio is ‘Somewhere’, recorded live in Lucerne in 2009.






その活動はジャズの枠を越え、2009年には、アルバム「Peace Time」でグラミー賞ベスト・ニューエイジアルバム賞を受賞しています。
