This album was supposed to be a documentary recording only, and wasn't originally planned for release, but as Jarrett says in the sleeve notes "I think that you can hear on this tape, what jazz is all about".
It is a little different from the standards trio, because its Paul Motian. However Motian played with Monk, Bill Evans and a multitude of other Jazz giants, so the standard of drumming couldn't be much higher!
Just because it's light doesn't mean it isn't good. It is really good.
It does not have the intense or lengthy solos of much of Jarrett's work, but it is just basic jazz songs played very beautifully at a basic level. Now that I think about it, I believe it was to create exactly that sort of music that motivated the standards trio to be created in the first place.
Someone who complains that Jarrett's music doesn't "swing" would probably find this album to their liking.
Seems like a very fitting set for him to have played in his hometown.
