An original and influential stylist, pianist Keith Jarrett and his trio, Gary Peacock and Jack DeJohnette, bring fresh, innovative interpretations to several "standards" in this breathtaking live performance recorded in 1993. Tracks: In Your Own Sweet Way, Butch and Butch, Basin Street Blues, Solar-Extension, If I Were a Bell, I Fall in Love Too Easily, Oleo, Bye Bye Blackbird, The Cure, I Thought About You. 130 minutes.
Superb audio, interesting video direction, three virtuoso players interacting for more than two hours: recorded jazz concerts don't get much better than this performance by the Keith Jarrett Trio. Pianist Jarrett, drummer Jack DeJohnette, and bassist Gary Peacock play two complete sets of standards in this 1993 Japanese concert. Watching them is fascinating--especially Jarrett, eyes scrunched in concentration, writhing intensely, coaxing and wrenching ideas from his keyboard, and punctuating his improvisations with weird, off-key vocalisms. But listening to them is even better. This is a group in perfect sync with one another; even a 26-minute version of Miles Davis's "Solar" and Jarrett's own "Extension" doesn't have a boring moment. You won't get much of a "show," per se--typically, Jarrett doesn't say a word to the audience--but that's hardly the point. With musicians this good, the playing's the thing. --Sam Graham
