Jack DeJohnette Trio Featuring Ravi Coltrane and Matthew Garrison in Stanford 7/27 & Santa Cruz 7/28 Print
Written by Ronaldo Oregano   
Jack DeJohnette Trio

Widely regarded as one of the great drummers in modern jazz, Jack DeJohnette has a wide-ranging style that makes him a dynamic sideman and bandleader. He has played with virtually every major jazz figure from the 1960s on, including Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock, Ornette Coleman, Sonny Rollins, and Abbey Lincoln. Ravi Coltrane (son of John and Alice) has taken a remarkable journey over the past two decades, collaborating with jazz greats from McCoy Tyner to Joe Lovano, Ralph Alessi, Geri Allen and Jeff ‘Tain’ Watts. Electric bassist Matthew Garrison (son of Jimmy) has recorded and appeared with some of the most exciting artists in jazz,  including Joe Zawinul, John McLaughlin, and Herbie Hancock. The Jack DeJohnette Trio will appear at Dinkelspiel Auditorium in Satanford on July 27th and at Kuumbwa Jazz Center in Santa Cruz on July 28th.

When the crowd started slowly filling the Nourse Auditorium in San Francisco, it was hard to tell how many of the audience were fully prepared for what was to follow. It was June 21st on a cold and blustery day, not an atypical night in the early summer foggy environment that surrounds the City by the Bay. A simple unadorned stage was lightly lit, showing a drum set, guitar set-up, bass, and a relatively small percussion set. By the end of the show, the entire auditorium was on its feet; Angelique was dancing in the aisles; and her percussionist was doing a talking drum demo all about passion and longing (that is what we got) and how to dance your romance and dreams.

A protégé of the legendary jazz master Dizzy Gillespie, Arturo  Sandoval was born in Artemisa, a small town in the outskirts of Havana, Cuba, on November 6, 1949, just two years after Gillespie became the first musician to bring Latin influences into American Jazz.   Sandoval began studying classical trumpet at the age of twelve, but it didn’t take him long to catch the excitement of the jazz world.  He has since evolved into one of the world’s most acknowledged guardians of jazz trumpet and flugel horn, as well as a renowned classical artist, pianist and composer. Arturo appears with Zane Musa – saxophone, John Belzaguy on bass, Mahesh Balasooriya on piano, Johnny Friday on drums, and Armando Arce on percussion at Yoshi's on Oakland of Friday, May 30th through Sunday, June 1st.
