He began his career at the age of four when his parents, who valued music and music appreciation, singed him up for piano
lesson at the Chicago Conservatory of Music. After playing the piano for several years, he eventually added the drums, which
would become his passion and the vehicle to ride to his eventual fame. Even though jazz music was his first love, he enjoyed
all kinds of music, and tried to dabble in every genre. DeJohnette says he continues that integrated approach even in the
music he makes today. He doesn't like to be pinned to one type of music. He believes musicians should have the freedom to
experience all kinds of music. And that's exactly what DeJohnette did. He played with jazz quartets, collective musical groups,
gritty jazz musicians like Miles Davis, created music with Native American and African influences, and even created an album
that combined African jazz, reggae, and dance music. His sound is as he described it "multi-dimensional," and transcends the
typical. He has garnered much success from his out-of-the-box ideas about music, and was even awarded an honorary doctorate
from Berklee College of Music in Boston. DeJohnette's accolades also include a Grammy in 2009 for Best New Age Album. It's
