Sorcery is an album by Jack DeJohnette featuring Bennie Maupin, John Abercrombie, Mick Goodrick, Dave Holland and Michael Fellerman recorded in 1974 and released on the Prestige label.[3] The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow states "A lot of rambling takes place on this interesting but erratic CD reissue... While one admires DeJohnette's willingness to take chances, this music has not dated well".[4]
