Jack DeJohnette And Friends: Miles On Their Minds

Drummer Jack DeJohnette was 23 when he made his first recording with The Charles Lloyd Quartet in 1966. Since that time, he's been a driving force in the world of jazz. This year, DeJohnette will celebrate his birthday all year long — the big day is actually August 9 — with special events, including his current tour with his old friends Chick Corea (piano) and Stanley Clarke (bass).

One afternoon during their four-night engagement at Seattle's Jazz Alley, this jazz supergroup visited the KPLU Performance Studio for a little conversation with jazz host Abe Beeson and a whole lot of music. They must have had Miles Davis on their minds that day, because they began with John Coltrane's "Miles' Mode" and continued with Victor Feldman's composition "Joshua," which was originally recorded by Davis on his Seven Steps to Heaven album.
