Jack DeJohnette to celebrate 70th birthday at Newport Jazz Festival

Jack DeJohnette is celebrating his 70th birthday all year long and in some major ways.

The jazz drummer, one of the best ever to touch a kit, is finishing up a tour of the West Coast with pianist Chick Corea and bassist Stanley Clarke. Later in the year he’s playing with both Keith Jarrett’s trio and the resurrected Gateway trio with guitarist John Abercrombie and bassist Dave Holland. In between he’s taking a variety of groups to summer jazz festivals, including the one in Ottawa, where he’s headlining.
