Biography

Born in 1942, Jack DeJohnette is widely regarded as one of jazz music's greatest drummers. In his early years in Chicago scene, he led his own groups and was equally in demand as a pianist and as a drummer, collaborating with most major figures in jazz history, such as: John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Ornette Coleman, Sonny Rollins, Sun Ra, Jackie McLean, Thelonious Monk, Bill Evans, Stan Getz, Chet Baker, George Benson, Charles Lloyd, Herbie Hancock, Joe Henderson, Freddie Hubbard, Abbey Lincoln, Betty Carter and Eddie Harris, who is responsible for convincing DeJohnette to stick with drums ...

Born in 1942, Jack DeJohnette is widely regarded as one of jazz music's greatest drummers. In his early years in Chicago scene, he led his own groups and was equally in demand as a pianist and as a drummer, collaborating with most major figures in jazz history, such as: John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Ornette Coleman, Sonny Rollins, Sun Ra, Jackie McLean, Thelonious Monk, Bill Evans, Stan Getz, Chet Baker, George Benson, Charles Lloyd, Herbie Hancock, Joe Henderson, Freddie Hubbard, Abbey Lincoln, Betty Carter and Eddie Harris, who is responsible for convincing DeJohnette to stick with drums because he heard DeJohnette's natural talent.

His wide-ranging style, capable of playing in any modern idiom while maintaining a well-defined voice, has kept him in demand as a drummer and as a bandleader, as well as a fan favorite. As a child, he listened to all kinds of music and as Jack explains, he “never put them into categories. I had formal lessons on piano and listened to opera, country and western music, rhythm and blues, jazz, swing…to me, it was all music and great.” He carries with him that “integrated feeling about music,” and that belief is evident in his astonishingly large and eclectic discography.

He has recorded for Columbia, Landmark, MCA/GRP, and Toshiba/EMI/Blue Note, but the bulk of his recordings are on the ECM label. He also has a growing catalogue on his own imprint, Golden Beams Productions, since the label’s launch in 2005.

While continuing to lead his own projects and bands, DeJohnette has also been a 25-year member of the immensely popular Keith Jarrett/Gary Peacock/Jack DeJohnette Trio.

Jack DeJohnette is the recipient of many international and national awards for his music and drumming, including over 20 years of DownBeat magazine poll wins for Drummer of the Year. He was awarded an Honorary Doctorate from Berklee College of Music in 1991 and a GRAMMY® for Best New Age album, ‘Peace Time’ (Golden Beams) in 2009.

His latest CD, “Music We Are,” with Danilo Perez and John Patitucci, on DeJohnette’s Golden Beams label, was released on April 7, 2009, and includes a 25-minute bonus DVD providing a rare look at the trio’s friendship, intimate working relationship, and their recording process, and is also available in vinyl.
