Musical Artist: Jack DeJohnette/New Directions
Software Format: CD
New Directions found drummer/pianist DeJohnette reflecting on the multiple routes his musical life had taken and summarizing them in a single band. He'd worked with Gomez in the Bill Evans Trio, played extensively with Abercrombie in the Gateway trio and a new alliance with trumpeter Bowie reconnected Jack to the experimental spirit of the early AACM. "We had four strong and very different characters, could cover a lot of musical areas, and the chemistry was fantastic." Recorded 1978.
