Jack DeJohnette, is being honored today as one of the outstanding Drummers in the Percussion World. Many contributions of his performances, live and recorded, will service the Music business for years to come. Jack not only is a fine Drummer, but a Composer, Producer, Band Leader, and Keyboard player. His Classical training on piano, at Chicago's Conservatory of Music earned him a Degree, but his devotion to Jazz led him to New York in 1966 to begin a career.
