The DeJohnette – Coltrane – Garrison Trio is a multi-generational jazz supergroup. DeJohnette is a highly influential jazz drummer inducted into the Modern Drummer Hall of Fame in 2007; Ravi Coltrane – post-bop jazz saxophonist – is the son of jazz pianist Alice Coltrane and saxophonist John Coltrane, who played with DeJohnette; Matthew Garrison is DeJohnette’s godson, and an accomplished bassist in his own right, described by the New York Times as “an electric bass virtuoso.” Fifty years ago DeJohnette played with Coltrane Garrison’s fathers in John Coltrane’s group; on the 2016 album In Movement, he plays Coltrane’s haunting elegy “Alabama” with their sons. Harpist Brandee Younger, a modern harpist, under the influence of Dorothy Ashby and Alice Coltrane herself will open the show.
