Jack DeJohnette (photo by Dion Ogust) recognizes World Water Day with a celebration of arts and culture featuring two multi-generational legends in drummer Jack DeJohnette and bassist Larry Grenadier. The event will include water advocate guest speakers and a special presentation of prayers and traditional dance and song from local Native American communities.

In his 50-year career, DeJohnette has worked with Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Bill Evans, Sonny Rollins, Thelonious Monk and virtually everyone else. Grenadier has worked with Pat Metheny, Chris Potter, Kurt Rosenwinkel and many others. He is best-known as a fixture in Brad Mehldau’s trio.

Admission to the event is free, though a $10 recommended cover will be accepted at the door. Proceeds after expenses will be used to support a new mentorship program that provides opportunities for young activists to work with professionals in the environmental field.


The World Water Day celebration takes place on Sunday, March 22 from 5 to 8 p.m. at BSP in Kingston. BSP is located at 323 Wall Street.
