Miles-Davis Award: Jack DeJohnette

Miles-Davis Award: Jack DeJohnette


The Miles Davis Award was created for the Festival’s 15th anniversary in 1994 to honour a great international jazz musician for the entire body of his or her work and influence in regeneratingthe jazz idiom. Considered one of the preeminent jazz musicians of his generation, pianist and legendary drummer Jack DeJohnette has provided rhythms and grooves for the greatest legends in music: John Coltrane, Herbie Hancock, Miles Davis and Keith Jarrett, and many more. First noted as part of the Charles Lloyd Quartet, he then accompanied Miles Davis before being part of the famed Keith Jarrett Trio with bassist Gary Peacock in the ’80s. In celebration of his 75th birthday, he welcomes Larry Grenadier, John Scofield and John Medeski into the supergroup HUDSON, presenting a comprehensive career-overview concert at the Festival.
