There was a parking lot next to Birdland, which was convenient for me. I travelled from Long Island.

Description

*Jack DeJohnette Quintet

**with David Fiuczynski (guitar

Rudresh Mahanthappa (alto sax)

George Colligan (keyboards)

Jerome Harris (bass)*

Jack DeJohnette is widely regarded as one of jazz’s greatest drummers. In his early years on the Chicago scene, he was equally in demand as a pianist and as a drummer. He played R&B, hard bop, and avant-garde and was active with the experimentalists of the AACM in its early days, with the likes of founder Muhal Richard Abrams, Roscoe Mitchell and Joseph Jarman.  In 1966, he played alongside Rashied Ali in the John Coltrane Quintet, and international recognition came with his tenure in the Charles Lloyd Quartet, one of the first jazz groups to receive cross-over attention. It was in 1968 that DeJohnette joined Miles Davis’s group in time for the epochal upheaval marked by Bitches Brew, an album that forever changed the direction of jazz. Jack has been a major figure in jazz ever since, recording and touring with his own groups, as well as collaborating with an extensive list of legendary players that includes Ornette Coleman, Sonny Rollins, Sun Ra, Jackie McLean, Thelonious Monk, Bill Evans, Stan Getz, Keith Jarrett, Chet Baker, George Benson, Pat Metheny, Stanley Turrentine, Ron Carter, Lee Morgan, Charles Lloyd, Herbie Hancock, Dave Holland, Joe Henderson, Freddie Hubbard, Abbey Lincoln, Betty Carter, Eddie Harris, and many more.
