Voted Amazon top 10 Best Jazz Album of the year 2009! More than 13 years ago Jack DeJohnette first floated the notion of one day playing with bassist John Patitucci and pianist Danilo Perez. That idea finally comes to fruition on Music We Are, an adventurous and remarkably harmonious trio project.
Produced by DeJohnette and co-produced by Patitucci and Perez, Music We Are combines strictly composed pieces, organically developed in the studio by the trio, with spacious collective improvisations to showcase the three virtuosos performing double-duty: DeJohnette on drums and melodica; Patitucci on upright and electric basses; and Perez on piano and keyboard.
The album contains a bonus DVD, providing a rare look at the trio’s friendship, intimate working relationship, and their recording process, and is also available in vinyl.
