About the Album

As a member of Jack DeJohnette's touring band for the last several years, pianist George Colligan has developed a striking and powerful musical rapport with the legendary drummer that serves this, his 24th album as a leader, extremely well. With DeJohnette and virtuoso bassist Larry Grenadier, Colligan's ten original compositions positively soar from the deep and masterful interpretations of this incredible trio. "The Endless Mysteries" displays three peerless improvisors at the top of their game and marks a significant moment in time for the classic piano trio.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
