Jack DeJohnette & John Surman

Some VERY long distance footage of Jack DeJohnette and saxophonist John Surman in duet:

I saw DeJohnette and Surman play a duet concert like this at the Montreal Jazz Festival in 2001 and it was a life changing experience for me. I was sitting only a few feet from DeJohnette's drums during the show and it was a revelation to experience his nuance of sound and dynamics from the drums. Jack also played quite a bit of piano and that was impressive as well !
