DEJOHNETTE+COLTRANE+GARRISON Return to ShapeShifter Lab | Friday, June 15 @ 7:30pm & 9:00pm


“Mr. Coltrane, 50, and Mr. Garrison, 45, are scions of important jazz artists whose lives were entwined: the saxophonist John Coltrane and the bassist Jimmy Garrison, who played in Coltrane’s epochal quartet of the 1960s. Mr. DeJohnette, who is 73, has often recalled the rare privilege he had to sit in with that band, when he was coming up in Chicago…He was responsible for bringing Mr. Garrison and Mr. Coltrane together musically, years ago. And his leadership of the trio feels subtle but clear.” – NATE CHINEN, The New York Times

“It feels great! They're taking care of business, and that's why I'm playing with them. They come from a lineage; I played with their parents, so that continues in present day. Matthew is like my godson. He lived with me for a number of years. Ravi's really close, like another family member. Musically, personally, spiritually, and worldview-wise, we're on similar wavelengths. So the idea of us coming together was a natural one and it's grown that way ever since.” – JACK DEJOHNETTE, Austin Chronicle

“The spirit of John Coltrane runs through this trio, through bonds of direct lineage, clear influence and even via chance encounters. You’d be foolish not to sneak a peek at what they’re cooking up in the lab.” – Larry Blumenfeld, Blouin Artinfo Blogs

This will be an important live show (remember the one that happened right here in October 2015! Talk about a feeling of being “blessed” to be in a room!), just before the band heads off onto another special project that we will be announcing more about soon. Please come and be a part of this exploration of new sounds, textures and compositions, on a journey as only this Grammy-nominated group of masters is capable of taking you on. As history can attest, it is a rare and special occasion when these three meet in Brooklyn.
