The Somewhere in which the Standards trio find themselves is Lucerne, Switzerland with a performance both exploratory and in-the-tradition. The Neue Zurcher Zeitung headlined its review of the show Kontrollierte Ekstase controlled ecstasy an apt metaphor for a set that begins in improvisational Deep Space modulates into Miles Davis Solar, soars through the standards Stars Fell On Alabama and Between The Devil And The Deep Blue Sea and climaxes with an extended romp through West Side Story, as Bernsteins Somewhere and Tonight are bridged by the freely associative Jarrett original Everywhere.

First tune "Solar," recorded for Walkin' by Miles, is a replay from the trio's Tribute album in '90. There they started with the atmosphere like Bill Evans Trio and moved into Keith's original "Sun Prayer." Here they begins from Keith's original "Deep Space" and coalesce into "Solar" and unfolding the tune to the exhilarating states. The Trio continue this practice in "Somewhere ~ Everywhere." They begins "Somewhere" as carefully as a prayer and eventually turned into a ritual called "Everywhere," which became my favorite truck in this CD. In May tour, the trio pleased Japanese audiences with unexpected selections like "Fever," "St. Thomas," and "It's A Raggy Waltz." In this CD Jarrett makes "Tonight" about ecstasy. "I Thought About You" is a song also picked up by Miles for his Someday My Prince Will Come session and Blackhawk's lives. In this meaning they return to where they start this CD. They might be thinking about Miles and days with him while interweaving thoughts from three lifetimes.
"Tonight" is the perfect selection to follow and makes one wonder how an entire album of the Trio playing "West Side Story" selections would be. Wherever Leonard Bernstein is, he must be smiling ear to ear.This is easily one of the very best piano trio albums to come along in quite a while.
But the album is worth the price for the "Somewhere" title track alone, in which the trio
starts off playing the lovely Leonard Bernstein / Stephen Sondheim composition and then
seamlessly segues into a terrific KJ original "Everywhere".
