The Jack DeJohnette Piano Album is an album by Jack DeJohnette with Eddie Gómez and Freddie Waits recorded in 1985 and released on the Landmark label.[2] The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow states "This album was a surprise when it was released for it features drummer Jack DeJohnette exclusively on piano and synthesizer in a trio... DeJohnette on a couple of the tunes was among the very first pianists to really capture the sound of Thelonious Monk. Other selections are more in his own style and he displays a strong technique that does not sound like the work of a drummer who is moonlighting... Worth checking out.".[3]
