Just to clear this up. Paul Motian is on drums and there is no track called flying part 1. Jarretts performance here is as close as you'll ever get to hearing Jarrett playing just for fun. A bluesy version of Basin Street Blues, that is still embued with Jarretts distinctive touch and phrasing. Bye Bye Blackird is a wonderful performance, that I have listened to over and over.

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!

Keith Jarrett has made many trio recordings over the past few years with bassist Gary Peacock and drummer Jack DeJohnette, but on this CD, Paul Motian, who played drums with Jarrett in the 70s, adds his own signature style to the group as DeJohnette takes the night off. This is a live recording made at--you guessed it!--the Deer Head Inn in Allentown, Pennsylvania, Jarrett's birthplace. The crowd that night was in for a real treat, as is anyone who buys this CD. The only potential negative is Jarrett's humming--it doesn't bother me, but it drives some folks right up the wall. But oh, the playing, and the interplay among the three musicians! This is the jazz trio at its finest, in a live setting: what more can you want? Bass is just a bit reticent, but other than that, the recording quality is excellent.

This is nightclub jazz standards music that you might call "light" material from a standpoint of Keith Jarrett's overall body of work. That word maybe applies in a couple of respects- first of all the melodies are fairly simple and secondly the playing is somewhat austere.

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.

Jarrett isn't humming, it's more of a babbling. Sounds like a fly stuck in a window trying to get out sometimes, and it drives me up the wall. The musical performance is very good.

Keith Jarrett, in his note about this session included in the liner, says that he hopes listeners get an appreciation of what jazz is all about on this live recording on a misty night in Allentown, PA, sometime back in the early to mid nineties. Given the large number of Jarrett trio recordings to choose from, starting in the early 80's, I find it amusing/ironic that my favorite is this VERY relaxed, spacious recording with PAUL MOTIAN on the drums, sitting in place of Jack DeJohnette on this one occasion. I never tire of this one, and the variety of material, as well as the generous performances give me no end of pleasure. Motian swings hard in an unobtrusive fashion, and Jarrett really seems to be enjoying being back on home turf. Gary Peacock is, as always, excellent. With a bewildering array of recordings to choose from, including Jarrett's own trio, I think this is an excellent place to start listening to the modern piano trio...if this is what jazz is about, count me in!

Fantastic Jarrett album. A tiny bit different with Paul Motion behind the drums, but an instant classic in my opinion. I just wish they did more albums together.

Listening as if I was sitting in the club at the time of the recording.
