The classically-trained Bobby McFerrin, perhaps best known in the mainstream for 'Don't Worry, Be Happy,' performs solo vocal improvisations of all styles including jazz, scat, classical and nursery rhymes. After early gigs with avant-gardists, drummer Jack DeJohnette joined the John Coltrane Quintet in 1966 and went on to collaborate with Ornette Coleman, Sonny Rollins, Thelonious Monk, Bill Evans, Stan Getz, Keith Jarrett, Chet Baker, George Benson and many more. DeJohnette joined Miles Davis's group in 1968 which kicked off associations with fellow bandmates Keith Jarrett, John McLaughlin, Chick Corea and Dave Holland. For more than 35 years, Chick Corea has been one of the most significant jazz pianists. Not content at any time to rest on his laurels, he continues to explore different musical territories, from acoustic jazz to electronic and world music influences.
