At first glance it might appear that Jack DeJohnette’s Music We Are is simply a jazz piano trio recording, albeit one that has a compelling lineup since the other players include pianist Danilo Perez and bassist John Patitucci. That said, appearances can be, and in this case are certainly, deceiving. These musicians have all played together before in other contexts: DeJohnette and Patitucci have worked together on a pair of Steve Khan’s recordings, while Perez and Patitucci are members of Wayne Shorter’s quartet. The music here ranges widely.
Music We Are is an album by Jack DeJohnette recorded in 2008 and released on his Golden Beams label. It was obviously a blast to record it as well".
New Directions is an album by Jack DeJohnette released on the German ECM label. It was recorded June 1978 at Talent Studio in Oslo and released in 1978. There are some strong moments (particularly from Abercrombie and DeJohnette) but this band (to use a cliché) was less than the sum of its parts".

Both demonstrate the considerable stylistic territory that Music We Are covers, without feeling overly considered. Eclectic and esoteric, it's an album that celebrates the cross-pollination of music from the earth's four corners while revering the jazz tradition that permits music to be made on such fertile ground, with abstract classicism, tinges of Gamelan and folkloric innocence intersecting and driving the music to unexpected and joyous places. Music We Are appears in the following lists: 2009 albums. 10 lists, 3,288 members. Jack DeJohnette albums.
Jack DeJohnette seems to be saving some of his most creative and eclectic playing for his senior years, says John Fordham. DeJohnette is joined by Wayne Shorter sidemen Danilo Perez (piano) and John Patitucci (bass), and at its best, Music We Are sounds intriguingly like 21st-century Thelonious Monk music, a jazzy Gamelan band, or the work of a free-improvising Herbie Hancock.
