I was not familiar with Keith Jarrett but saw at Borders what looked like a piano jazz trio I might enjoy, particularly because of the many standards I am very familiar with. I am familiar (and like) the bassist (Gary Peacock) and the drummer (Jack DeJohnette) so I ordered this CD from Amazon based on the tunes and the players. I have an above average audio system and when I put on the CD this afternoon I thought at first that something had gone wrong with my system. Particularly on the first tune, Bye Bye Blackbird. I began to hear all sorts of weird sounds, some appeared to be human voices, others I could not figure out. Screeches, whines, all indescribable. It continued throughout most of the seven tunes, some more than others. If not for these very weird sounds, I think I would have rated this CD with at least 4 stars, as the music (without the weird sounds) was excellent, everyone in the trio. Please, if what I heard was a defective CD (I know it is not my audio system) let me know and I will take back all my negative comments. As it stands now, I doubt I would ever purchase anything by Keith Jarrett or from ECM again. What a disappointment. By the way, I have close to 1,000 jazz CD's and so I believe I know good jazz when I hear it. This CD was bizarre.
