Jack DeJohnette at the 2012 London Jazz Festival

1 hour, 30 minutes
First broadcast:
Monday 19 November 2012

Jez Nelson presents a legend of jazz drumming - Jack DeJohnette - recorded live with his group at the London Jazz Festival in a 70th birthday celebration concert.

Helping to carve the history of jazz for over fifty years, DeJohnette sits within the highest ranks of the establishment, having played with giants such as Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock, John Coltrane, Ornette Coleman and Keith Jarrett. A distinguished bandleader in his own right, DeJohnette's output remains abundant and in January he released his latest album Sound Travels, a recording that draws extensively on Afro-Latin rhythms. In this concert, the drummer is joined by reedsman Don Byron, guitarist Marvin Sewell, pianist George Colligan and bass player Jerome Harris.

Presenter: Jez Nelson
Producers: Peggy Sutton & Joby Waldman.
