August 12. Woodstock’s legendary drummer Jack DeJohnette was proudly profiled in the December 2010 issue of Chronogram. As the former Miles Davis sideman hits his seventh decade, the Bearsville Theater honors his invaluable contributions to jazz with an evening headlined by his one-time student and Grammy winner Terri Lyne Carrington’s quartet and features such well wishers as Don Byron, Sheila Jordan, Greg Osby, and others. Prior to the concert is a benefit dinner for food-relief organization the Queens Galley with music by vocalist Teri Roiger, bassist John Menegon, and guitarist Mike DiMicco. (The Chris Robinson Brotherhood crows August 24; the Smithereens explode August 25.) Dinner 6pm; concert 7:30pm. Dinner and concert: $55; concert only $30. Bearsville. (845) 679-4406; Bearsvilletheater.com

  • Bobby Previte's Lasting Impact

    Bobby Previte is equally revered for his magical skills as a musician and the constantly surprising works he produces as a composer of ensemble, film, dance, and theatrical scores. A list of the names who've drawn on his talents stretches from John Adams to John Zorn. Over his nearly four-decade professional career, his innovative rhythms, bold arrangements, and deep aural palette have crossed and re-crossed the boundaries between jazz, classical, avant-garde, R&B, straight-up rock, and electronic music.
