Keith Jarrett Artist Snapshot:

Pianist Keith Jarrett has carved out a unique place among contemporary improvising musicians. After a brief mid-'60s stint with Art Blakey, Jarrett joined the enormously popular Charles Lloyd Quartet before being recruited by Miles Davis at the height of early fusion. Initially, Jarrett's solo career continued in a similar electric vein, but he soon turned exclusively to acoustic instruments. His improvised solo piano concerts captured genius at work, and his Standards Trio redefined the genre. In between, he has performed classical works and his own folk-inspired music, and he has been an outspoken critic of the commercialization of jazz.

Product Notes

A musical chameleon, pianist Keith Jarrett was at his finest when he recorded these sustained solo improvisations in a German concert hall in 1975, the first lasting 26 minutes, the second 40. Melodies and rhythmic figures arise fluidly from his fingers as he moves from one idea to another, while his strong left hand is often used for repeated motifs that generate a rolling hypnotic power. This couples with strongly consonant harmonies to impart the flavor of gospel music at times, dance musics and Debussy at others. Above all, it's Jarrett's ability to knit all of his moods and wanderings into an almost seamless tapestry of warm and tuneful ideas that gives this music its enduring appeal. --Stuart Broomer
