5.0 out of 5 stars This is the work of a genius 11 Aug 2005
Format:Audio CD
The first track on Paris Concert is without doubt the most inspirational piano music I have ever heard. In around 38 minutes Jarrett takes the live audience through a journey of improvisational styles beginning with Bachian counterpoint, then his own characteristic chaotic disharmony and ending with a simple melodic resolution. This contrast in styles culminates with a sense of the divine. It has a profound physical effect on the listener.
Forget everything you ever thought about solo piano, this is something new and something that Jarrett has never reproduced.

5.0 out of 5 stars What to say? Just another magic of KJ! 9 Oct 2010
Format:Audio CD
Make no mistake; this is not Bach's music. This is Jarrett's improvisation on the spot. From scratch, these very notes played live, only once in the lifetime!

Despite some 300 CDs in my collection, mostly classical, there is no music I listen in the last six months other than the live piano concerts of Keith Jarrett. Highly excited about that, I said recently to my son that the man could possibly be the most talented musician since the Big Bang, assuming that he is from this planet (well, sometimes I am not sure about that).

I immediately realized that my claim could have been too emotional, but this CD may actually prove my point. Listening the first part of this album, I wonder whether Bach, who btw is one of my favourite composers, himself was able of improvising in the length of nearly 40 minutes in such breath taking way?

Everybody will have his/her own opinion; I find the verdict of faux Bach grossly unfair for this beautifully crafted music, indeed under the influence of Bach. I simply love it.

This really is one of the most emotional music I have ever heard. To me, this CD is worth it for the 1st track only. I have quite a few of Jarrett's solo concerts, but this track goes a step further. The two other tracks are good (especially "The Wind"), but in a way do not go with the 1st track. There is a huge difference of delivery.
I can only recommend it. The 3rd part of the 1st track is pure bliss.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Treasure 17 July 2007
Format:Audio CD
This solo Piano album really grows on you. My intial reaction to hearing it was, well this is nice but it certainly isn't Jazz. However after a few listens I began to appreciate the beauty in his 'Classical' improvisations. And for those who don't know, all of Keith Jarretts solo non-classical Piano concerts are improvised from scratch on the spot. This does occasionally lead to some moments where you can literally hear him hold down a vamp whilst he awaits inspiration. But remember rhythm alone can be music. On this CD the level of inspiration is kept high all the time.

The second and third track were probably originally encores and both are memorable for different reasons. 'The Wind' is a lovely tune which Jarrett plays beautifully, demonstrating his immaculate touch and phrasing. 'Blues' is a minor blues and as a way to finish the album I can't think of anything better. This is a return to very routes of Jarretts Jazz playing and after the intensity of the first track and the beauty of the the second, its a marvellous contrast.

This isn't the best of Keith Jarretts solo Piano concerts (try the Breman/Lausanne concerts) hence I've not given it 5 stars, but it is still a staggeringly good recording from one of the great musicians alive today.

A unique artwork melody is as special for every one as it's personality, it's included in the most of the top Keith's musical performance with Solo Concerts Bremen and Lausanne and stand out among amazing Staircase, face in you & la scala.
