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