The Jack DeJohnette Trio
SAN FRANCISCO  •  Yoshi's San Francisco  •  Ongoing

The Jack DeJohnette Trio featuring Chick Corea and Stanley Clarke celebrating Jack DeJohnette's 70th Birthday.

DeJohnette's drumming, though originally influenced by masters including Max Roach, Art Blakey, Roy Haynes, Elvin Jones, Philly Joe Jones, Art Taylor, Rashied Ali, Paul Motian, Tony Williams, and Andrew Cyrelle, has long drawn from sources beyond “jazz.”  More than thirty years ago, he was already describing his work as “multi-directional music.”

“As a child I listened to all kinds of music and I never put them into categories.  I had formal lessons on piano and listened to opera, country and western music, rhythm and blues, jazz, swing, whatever.  To me, it was all music and great.  I've kept that integrated feeling about music, all types of music, and just carried it with me.  I've maintained that belief and feeling in spite of the ongoing trend to try and compartmentalize people and music.”
