If there is such a thing as jazz royalty, this concert offers an ample supply! Across a 50-year career, 2012 NEA Jazz Master and Grammy Award winner Jack DeJohnette has blazed trails as one of a handful of the most innovative drummers in jazz history. The short list of his creative associations includes Miles Davis, Keith Jarrett, Charles Lloyd, George Benson, Chick Corea, Hubert Laws, Freddie Hubbard, Pat Metheny, Dave Holland and so many others. While Jack’s incendiary sound is easily recognized, he brings the versatility to encompass hard bop, fusion, world music and avant-garde styles in equal measure. 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. His latest Blue Note release is Spirit Fiction. 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, Herbie Hancock, Steve Coleman and Jim Beard. He is the founder of Shapeshifter Lab, a Brooklyn incubator for adventurous music.
