Product Description

Product Description

The "Somewhere" in which Keith Jarrett, Gary Peacock and Jack DeJohnette - the 'Standards' trio - find themselves is Lucerne, Switzerland, in the year 2009, with a performance both exploratory and in-the-tradition. This sparkling concert from one of the great groups of jazz is the trio's first album since 'Yesterdays' was released in 2009, and it comes in the 30th year of the "Standards" project.

The Neue Zürcher 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's "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 Bernstein's "Somewhere" and "Tonight" are bridged by the freely associative Jarrett original "Everywhere".

The closing encore "I Thought About You" makes an arc back to the Miles Davis references at the beginning. Miles played this on 'Someday My Prince Will Come', and it was in the Davis band book for years. Keith, Gary and Jack recorded it previously when paying tribute to Miles on "Bye Bye Blackbird".

"This formation remains one of the best, not just of this, but of all times," wrote Jürg Meier, reviewing the Lucerne concert of Jarrett, Peacock, DeJohnette in the Neue Zürcher Zeitung. "Their engagement with the Great American Songbook, the standards of jazz, is exemplary in the simultaneity of absolute respect for the material and absolute freedom in dealing with it." The songs are honoured for their melodic strengths and credited with sufficient robustness to support fiery improvisation that scales a heaven of invention.

Personnel: Keith Jarrett (piano), Gary Peacock (double-bass), Jack DeJohnette (drums)

Review

'The undisputed heavyweights of international jazz...every new release is a cause for celebration, and the only competition Jarrett and his fellow geniuses are up against is their own already voluminous back catalogue.' -- The Irish Times, (Cormac Larkin) * * * * *


'Song-forms are dominant here - often developed with almost venomous relish by Jarrett and imaginative regular rejoinders from Peacock, underpinned DeJohnette...improvised piano-trio music of a standard few can touch.' -- The Guardian, (John Fordham) * * * *


'Catches the band on excellent form...the highlights are two ballad performances that have all the Jarrett hallmarks of exquisite touch, delicate melodic arc, and no boundary between the composer's imagination and the pianist's invention.' -- Jazzwise, (Alyn Shipton) * * * *


'It would be hard to find three musicians more dedicated to keeping their music fresh and inventive than these...the interplay is freer and more beguiling than ever.' -- The Observer, (Dave Gelly) * * * *


'The world's leading jazz trio...highlights are the segue from "Deep Space" to "Solar" and from "Somewhere" to the hymn-like "Everywhere".' -- The Independent On Sunday, (Phil Johnson) * * * *


'After its 65 minutes of brilliance you'll be wondering at how quickly the time went...a wonderful record.' -- The Irish Examiner, (Kieran Bohane) * * * *


'This is the veteran trio showing that, in this golden age repertoire, they are still top of the heap.'

--The Times, (John Bungey) * * * *

This latest live release from Jarrett's trio really is nothing short of brilliant.
Everything from their famed tight, intuitive and almost telepathic interplay down to how much fun these three legends seem to be having together.
The more I listen to this superb disc, the more I start to think it could even rank as one of my all-time favourite Jarrett recordings.
How anyone can listen to this level of quality musicianship and not be filled with total awe & joy is truely beyond me.

Easily a 5 Star recording.

Now please just go and buy as many ECM Jazz recordings as your bank balance will allow!!!

Five VIRTUOSIC Stars. Jazz Trio Excellence! "The Standards Trio" of piano icon Keith Jarrett, inventive bassist Gary Peacock, and drum master Jack DeJohnette is in outstanding form in this 2009 concert recorded live in Lucerne Switzerland. It's been over 30 years since this most highly-influential trio began playing together as a unit in live and recorded 'summit meetings' to critical and popular acclaim. Each performance is wonderful but the 'best of the best' begins with the beautiful 'solo piano to trio' reading of "Deep Space/Solar" with marvelous solos from Jarrett and Peacock over DeJohnette's percussive commentary. "Stars Fell on Alabama" and "I Thought About You" get the mellow, inventive ballad treatment. "Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea" and "Tonight" are swinging, off-kilter performances. And perhaps best of all the amazing bolero-like vamps surrounding the 19 minute convergence of "Somewhere/Everywhere", which gets a roaring ovation. These are 'killer' performances with great trio interaction and solos, recorded on the pristine ECM soundscape in front of an enthusiastic audience, by one of the greatest jazz trios in history which seems to get better with each new offering. My Highest Recommendation! Five LYRICAL Stars. (6 tracks; Time: 65 minutes: 33 seconds )

My husband is a great Keith Jarrett fan and loves most things he does, so this was an excellent present. (Stars should say "he loves it" - he plays it in his workshop, so I haven't even heard it!)

Format: Audio CD
As has been widely remarked, this 2009 concert is the first release of the Standards trio since a, well, trio of recordings from 2001. The current strategy of releasing Jarrett live performances is slightly cryptic (which is not necessarily a bad thing); while certain solo performances have been rushed out, ECM have also delved into their vaults for (admittedly excellent) quartet recordings from the 1970s.

I saw the Trio at the Royal Festival Hall the same summer in what was an undeniably fine concert but the decision to release "Somewhere" is justified in that it strikes a rare and more satisfying balance between tradition and invention. When I first saw the tracklisting, I was slightly underwhelmed but the two restless Jarrett originals (which respectively lead into and out of other compositions) add a spike to proceedings. The much-recorded Miles Davis original "Solar" is presented in an inventive, propulsive form before evolving into a rich resolution while "Stars Fall on Alabama" is simply beautiful.

Although the standing of the Standards Trio is beyond reproach, in past I have sometimes wondered what more they can say beyond their mastery of the great American Song Book. "Somewhere" dispels any such doubts and is highly recommended to the faithful and the unwashed. Enjoy.

The trio are in great form here. So much so it feels as if a new phase has been entered, one which reaches back to the 70s and touches the American Quintet. The title track is amazing; how they arrived at where they arrived from Leonard Bernstein's standard.

... you'll know what to expect. If not, this is an excellent place to start. Quality; from cover, through sound (an ECM given) to the sheer joy of the playing.
