Jack DeJohnette All-Stars, Live In Concert: Newport Jazz 2012

August 5, 2012 Nearing 70, the master drummer is as dynamic as ever. For his second gig at Newport, he opens his Rolodex to welcome leading lights like guitarist Lionel Loueke and bassist Christian McBride, and even duets on piano with Jason Moran.

The drummer has had a busy year already, having accepted the NEA Jazz Masters award and having released a new album, Sound Travels. He continues his year-long 70th birthday celebration by assembling this ad hoc band of leading lights like guitarist Lionel Loueke and bassist Christian McBride, who are both leading their own gigs this year. Many of the Jack DeJohnette All-Stars can be heard on Sound Travels, including Jason Moran, who spars with him in a piano duet interlude.

  • Lionel Loueke, guitar
  • Jason Moran, piano

  • Tim Ries, saxophones
