Any Jarrett fan learns to naturally filter them out? You've got to be kidding me. That racket he makes is HORRIBLE and prevents any awakened listener from losing himself in the music. It's a major distraction and NO ONE filters it out. At best, you can only forgive him and keep listening.
Chalk up these five-star reviews to hardcore jazz aficionados who tolerate anything if it's done by one of the revered names.
The Monk/Coltrane album unearthed a few years ago? Terrible unlistenable sound quality recorded on a home-tape-deck. But it's Monk and Coltrane! Five stars! Chick Corea Elektrik Band? Quantized synth music recorded specifically to sell albums. But it's Chick! Five stars! And don't get me started on that Coltrane album that the man recorded while he was under the influence of LSD. It's Coltrane! Landmark experiment! Five stars!
You just have to filter the noise out.
I guess if you go to a Kiss concert, you can also filter out that it's too loud, the musicians are all wearing makeup and costumes, and the music is banal.
Other than that, it's pure genius. You just have to filter out the distractions.
See my one-star review. You've been warned. This is just a DVD of a great musician ruining his own performance with obnoxious and inconsiderate nasal noises.
I can only assume that Keith is so busy and prolific that he never goes back and listens to any of his own stuff.
Ever notice how no one can tell that they're a bad driver? Or lover? Or conversationalist? All of a man's ways seem right to him.
Some people are so into their own heads that they have no concept of the effect they have on other people.
Or in this case, their recordings.
Do what I did. Just stop listening to Keith Jarrett entirely. It's not worth the work to "filter it out", if such a thing could even be done.
Okay, I did keep the Koln Concert CD. That's my one holdout. No nasal noises on that one, for some reason. Everything else? Just bad...
Bad, Keith ... BAD!!
