JAZZ FEST INDEX - 2004 Rochester INTERNATIONAL JAZZ FESTIVAL

Bobbi McFerrin and Jack DeJohnette

This show was pretty cool for a few reasons. It was only Bobbi McFerrin and Jack DeJohnette behind a mountain of drums for the whole show - just the two of them. And they didn;t really do any songs - not even "Blackbirds" or "Don't Worry". They kind of played around and only fell flat when they did a country western thing. This was a remarkable show for such a commercial artist. They didn't do an encore either. Jack DeJohnette was Miles's drummer during the Bitches Brew era and the last time that we saw him was out at the Red Creek on a Sunday afternoon in the late seventies. - photo by P Doddy - click photo to advance > next
