Jack DeJohnette and Terri Lyne Carrington Play in Woodstock

Jack DeJohnette

Two of jazz’s top drummers are set to appear together at the ongoing Jazzstock series in Woodstock this Saturday—although one of them won’t be on his usual instrument.

Let me explain. In addition to percussionist Terri Lyne Carrington, who will lead her Money Jungle quartet from behind the kit, the evening will mark a rare appearance by Jack DeJohnette on solo piano. Carrington has played with Dizzy Gillespie, Stan Getz, Pharoah Sanders, Herbie Hancock, Clark Terry, Wayne Shorter, Al Jarreau, and others. Her mentor, DeJohnette, is well known for his years with Miles Davis, Charles Lloyd, Keith Jarrett, Sun Ra, Bill Evans, and his own bands. DeJohnette, who I profiled for the November 2010 issue of Chronogram, actually started out as pianist and has a solo piano album, appropriately titled Return, due out next month.

Check out this video promo for Return:

Terri Lyne Carrington’s Money Jungle and Jack DeJohnette will perform at the Woodstock Community Center on March 19 at 7:30pm. Tickets are $36.87 and $47.12. For more information, visit http://jazzstock.com/index/.
