Jack DeJohnette has played with almost all the architects of modern jazz history, from the members of the AACM to Coltrane, Miles, Rollins, Ornette Coleman and Bill Evans and is, of course, currently a member of the world's most celebrated piano trio, Keith Jarrett's "Standards" band. For a quarter-century the drummer has also been a bandleader in his own right. Oneness joins a line of distinguished groups that includes New Directions and Special Edition and is perhaps Jack's most all-embracing unit to date: its members share the leader's utopian vision of a multi-directional music that includes, but is not limited to, jazz. The heart of the band is the uncanny rhythmic alliance between DeJohnette and Don Alias, first tested on Miles's innovative On The Corner and revitalized on the road with Herbie Hancock's The New Standard project.
