Jack DeJohnette
Jack, born 1942, first learnt to play the piano, starting at age 4. His interest for the drums not began before he turned 18. But the drums became his favorite instruments. In the early 60's, Jack played together with John Coltrane, and again in 1966, when he had moved to New York. Between 1966 and 1969, he appeared with Jackie McLean and became a member of the Charles Lloyd Quartet.
 
One of the highlights of Jack's career surely has been the recording of "Bitches Brew", Miles Davis' famous album. From 1969 till 1972, Jack played in Davis' group, then formed groups of his own and cooperated with Dave Holland and John Abercrombie. Later, in the 80's, Jack resumed playing the piano. He never has been that typical organ player, rather the organ seemed to have been means of experiments.
