Dancing with Nature Spirits is an album by Jack DeJohnette with Michael Cain and Steve Gorn recorded in 1995 and released on the ECM label in 1996.[2] The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow states "The five group originals (two of which are over 20 minutes long) build gradually to a high level of intensity. Although there is no bass, the music swings in its own way and DeJohnnette's drums and percussion are consistently stimulating. This thoughtful but often-fiery music is worth a close listen".[3]
