Album Review

This single-disc collection of eight tracks selected by drummer and composer Jack DeJohnette form his ECM recordings as a leader and sideman must have been difficult to select, at the very least. DeJohnette's own recordings have covered so much ground, and featured so many of jazz's most illustrious players, that choosing even a representative sample is almost impossible.
