Product Description

Keith Jarrett's "Standards Trio" with bassist Gary Peacock and drummer Jack DeJohnette has been so good for so long that they might be taken for granted, but this 2001 concert from Munich's State Opera shows their combination of depth and spontaneity can still surprise. Jarrett has a knack for marking his own path through familiar repertoire, from the playfully exuberant "I Can't Believe That You're in Love with Me" that opens the set to his deeply reflective solo version of "It's All in the Game." In between, the group's close-knit interplay enhances a limpidly beautiful version of "You've Changed," an up-tempo harmonic exploration of Cole Porter's "I Love You," and a hard-swinging account of Gerry Mulligan's "Five Brothers." The highlight, though, is the title track, a funky 20-minute tour de force that explores the blues from roots to branches. --Stuart Broomer

4.0 out of 5 stars A Swinging Affair September 14, 2004
Format:Audio CD
The best way to appreciate "The Out-of-Towners" is to sit down with a nice glass of Merlot & turn the volumn up. Jarrett, DeJohnette and Peacock are seasoned friends who can shift between the blues, swinging Jazz and free improvisation and throw in a little gospel for fun. Their gumbo of Trio music is well documented across twenty plus years of playing together.

This live recording captures the group between last years "Up For It" (Recorded July 2002)and the magical May 2001 performance "Always Let Me Go". The Out-of-Towners" (Recorded July 2001) is the transitional recording and it is clear that the group was moving back to simpler & safer waters of playing Standards. This recording lacks the creative fire & free improvisation of "Always Let Me Go", but is equally strong in swing, feel and overall musicanship.

The disc opens and closes with beautiful solo piano pieces from Jarrett. Reflective & beautiful are good word choices here. In between is a gorgeous Ballad "You've Changed" and three head bobbing swinging numbers that leave you smiling. My favorite moment occurs on "I Love You" when Dejohnettes taunt and teases his cymbals while fading in and out during his solo. The magic of this recording for me is on the title track. Here the group starts out with a simple blues structure that morphs into a free flowing romp that spins and weaves for nineteen minutes of pure listening pleasure.

I love the creative ability of these musicians. They have grown to be one of my favorite listening experiences. It will be interesting to see where they go next. For now, the magic continues. Enjoy!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars My daughter danced November 6, 2004
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have been following Kieth Jarrett sine the early 70's and watched his music mature. After experimenting with many musical forms he has settled into mastering and reinventing classic introspective jazz.

It is like a man who left his home to travel the world only to return to his roots, yet bringing with him new ideas and freedom of expression.

It still amazes me that these recordings are live. Jarrett's unlimited capacity to improvise and create spontaineous musical moods makes each recording an experience. No other artist in any musical genre has developed this always present yet never fully captured aspect of jazz.

Clearly, these are landmark recordings that will have historical significance yet are accessable.

I was listening to this CD and my 8 year-old daughter came in and improvised a dance that captured the music in her own way.

Fine music communicates emotions and moods that cannot be expressed in words. Such was the joy my daughter experienced.

Many people find difficulty with Jarrett's intricate detail that on the surface seems minimalistic. To fully experience the music the listener must empty him/herself and allow the music to play you.

After 30+ years I still struggle to find the words. Perhaps there are none.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! August 11, 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
While much of the same can be said about this timeless trio's previous outings, the set is not only perfectly balanced in the choice of material but Jarrett's sometimes overly-audible vocalizing is absent as well. Although, those who complain the loudest about Keith's tendencies in that direction remind me of those tightly wired types who drive their spouses or partners crazy by screaming hysterically in the middle of the night, "I hear a faucet dripping!" They seem to intentionally listen for the slightest suggestion of Jarrett's vocal exuberance. Perhaps the sound of cactus growing in the middle of the Mojave Desert would drive them to distraction.

For me, it's all about the music and I enjoy listening for the Bud Powell flavored phrasing I hear on some of the tunes rather than wasting time obsessing over minor vocalisms. The selections range from songs penned by Cole Porter and Jimmy McHugh to Gerry Mulligan and one Jarrett original. The concert closes with the Tommy Edwards `50s pop hit "It's All In The Game." Trivia: the lyrics, "Many a tear has to fall...," were written by Charles Dawes, U.S. Vice-President under President Calvin Coolidge (1925-29). While Keith performs the ballad without excessive sentimentality, it still may strike some deep chords of remembered romances in some listeners.

Jarrett leaves ample room for Peacock and DeJohnette to shine, and the group plays energetically and elegantly throughout without ever degenerating into stereotypic "smooth jazz." This is one of those rare performances that is strong enough to warrant your complete attention in the foreground or can be equally enjoyable at low volume in the background. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars If there was any doubt... February 20, 2005
Format:Audio CD
...that Keith Jarrett is the greatest living jazz pianist, this album should help to dispel it. And, it's amazing how much more sensitive and natural his playing sounds since his comeback. All of the daring and improvisational brilliance is there, with none of the self-indulgence. At nearly 60, Jarrett just keeps getting better and better!

The opening tune "I Can't Believe You're in Love With Me," is just about the greatest thing I've ever heard. I know that jazz pianists all over the world will be scratching their heads trying to transcribe the opening and closing sections of this one. It's really a high-water mark in jazz pianism.

The second cut "You've Changed" is the perfect ballad. There isn't a single false note in this beauty. While not really a display of virtuosity like the first cut, this is just really tasteful jazz. Again, nobody handles a ballad like Jarrett.

The third cut "I Love You" and the fifth "Five Brothers" are playful romps very familiar to Jarrett fans. The former allows a bit of space for some solo DeJohnette which is pretty gratifying.

The fourth cut "The Out-of-Towners" is a bluesy group improvisation that will also be familiar territory to Jarrett fans, and is my least favorite part of the album (although I do enjoy it).

Finally, "It's All in the Game" is solo Jarrett, just playing the song, and as you'd expect, it's perfect and beautiful.

Taken as a whole, it's amazing just how "on" these guys were for this entire gig. Comparing this with some earlier work (the big Blue Note box set comes to mind), it's obvious that these guys have really matured, like a really fine wine. Everything extraneous has been pared away, and what's left is crystalline and sublime.

If you enjoyed Up For It, get The Out-of-Towners! You won't be disappointed! It just may be the best Standards Trio album yet!
