Jack DeJohnette – Solo Piano

This concert offers a rare opportunity to experience NEA Jazz Master Jack DeJohnette playing solo piano. DeJohnette is celebrated for his work as a drummer with Miles Davis Bitches Brew Band, Herbie Hancock, Keith Jarrett, Bobby McFerrin, Bill Evans, and many more, and as a band leader and composer. He is among the world’s most recorded and influential living percussionists. He actually began his career playing piano in Chicago, where he was born. There he came under the tutelage of the legendary pianist Muhal Richard Abrams, who co-founded the AACM (Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians) and became both a musical mentor and spiritual influence. Although DeJohnette has made the piano an occasional part of his performances and recordings for years, this will be his first solo piano concert performance since the release of his first solo piano album, Return, in 2016.

This concert also marks the eighth event the Bardavon has presented in collaboration with Jack DeJohnette over the last two years, including concerts with Savion Glover, Dave Holland, Jason Moran, Matthew Garrison, Jon Batiste, Carlos Santana, and many others, plus three performances of two Sam Shepard plays with Estelle Parsons and David Strathairn.
