When Keith Jarrett debuted this largely Nordic quartet, he was in the midst of developing a US-based group of the same size with heavy leanings toward the approaches of Ornette Coleman and Paul Bley (even using veterans of Coleman bands). With the Nordic band, Jarrett was better suited to play wistful, melodic vamps that got great mileage out of Jan Garbarek's wavering but mostly vibrato-free tone and the ethereal rhythmic floats supplied by drummer Jon Christensen and bassist Palle Danielsson. "Blossom" is a lengthy, smouldering ballad, as tender as it gets in Jarrett's canon and worth every minor move the group makes. And while things are fairly icy throughout the slower spots, the band slinks into a couple gospel-touched gems, "Long As You Know You're Living Yours" and the harmonically piled, funky "Windup". All in all, this is not only one of the Jarrett high marks, it's a pinnacle for 1970s jazz overall. --Andrew Bartlett

This is my favourite 70's Jazz album.

A marvellous quartet of musicians, featuring Keith Jarrett on Piano and Jan Garbarek on Sax. A wide range of styles from the Gospel influenced "Long as Your..." to frankly undefineable (but brilliant) pieces like "The Windup". Spiral Dance is another stand-out track. The key thing about this album, is that it is an entirely accoustic album, made in an era when the trend in Jazz was for more electric fusion based bands.

The musicianship is of the highest order, and the compositions are mostly written by Jarrett.

Have a listen to the samples on Amazon - unless you're a die-hard dixieland/trad fan there will be something here for you.

At his worst Keith Jarrett can be a sore trial, having perpetrated some pretty tiresome music over the years - I think of his double-album Spirits, on which he eschews piano for the most part to tinker to scant effect with various pipes and percussion - but at his finest there are few to touch him, and Belonging shows the Pennsylvanian at his lyrical best.
With Jan Garbarek at his least indulgent (no hint of Officium earnestness here) and a Swedish rhythm section of like mind, this date is one of Jarrett/Garbarek`s most wholly satisfying, a mix of playful uptempo numbers and langourous ballads.
Central to this set is a six-minute funky piano-led charmer called `Long As You Know You`re Living Yours, and thereby hangs a tale. Anyone who knows the music of Steely Dan will recognise the theme, as Becker & Fagen (in genuine tribute, rather than to decieve) passed it off as their own as the title track of the album Gaucho, until Jarrett sued - it was settled out of court. Both versions are great!
In short, this is a lovely 45 minutes of well-programmed numbers from an excellent quartet on a pleasingly acoustic 1974 disc. In the right mood, Jarrett`s unique, lucent way with a melody hits the spot. Garbarek is on his coolly articulate top form here too.
One of the good ones.

Brilliant music. Not hard jazz, not classical, definitely not pop. Just beautiful melodies with piano and sax intertwining almost magically.

The utterly gorgeous "Spiral Dance" still haunts me in those quiet moments - I am so glad that this is available to replace my well-loved and worn-out LP.

Music for a peaceful summer evening, with the dining room doors open, a few friends round for a meal, a nice round red wine - and the perfect music for a perfect time.
