One of the finest jazz drummers of all time, Jack DeJohnette celebrates his 70th birthday in fine style with a quintet that includes the brilliant reedsman Don Byron, plus Marvin Sewell, George Colligan and Michael Mondesir. In a career that spans over half a century, he’s been the percussionist of choice for a veritable who’s who of jazz giants – Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Ornette Coleman, Herbie Hancock to name but a few – and he himself received a coveted Jazz Masters Award earlier this year.
