NEA Jazz Master Jack DeJohnette Featuring Special Guest Ravi Coltrane with Matthew Garrison and George Colligag at Portland PDX Jazz Festival at Newmark Theatre
Renowned as one of music's most adventurous artists and prolific drummers, 2012 was a banner year for Jack DeJohnette. He was named an NEA Jazz Master, the nation’s highest honor for a jazz artist. He also turned 70, boasting an impressive historical resume spanning early days with Charles Lloyd and seminal drumming in Miles Davis' fusion bands to his quarter-century-plus work with the Keith Jarrett Standards Trio. He continues the celebration in 2013 with a performance featuring Ravi Coltrane, Matt Garrison, and recent New York transplant George Colligan.
