Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

Well, it's exactly what it says on the tin, perhaps--another album of quiet solo piano music from the doyen of quiet solo piano music--but there's an intense, rather spooky strangeness to much of what's going on here. The tone is set by the opening of the first piece, which focuses on slow, attenuated arpeggios strangely reminiscent of, of all things, some of John Cage's solo (unprepared) piano pieces, knowing in their simplicity. Elsewhere, when Jarrett wanders off into the sophisticated lounge music which his followers regard as sublime but which others simply find exasperating, his right hand produces parodic melodies that fold back into themselves in a manner which evokes another composer from the American avant-garde tradition, Robert Ashley. Step away from these details and it almost seems as if Jarrett is setting out to imitate and subvert those with whom he's occasionally compared--try playing this back-to-back with a Harold Danko solo recording--and the results manage to be both subdued, refined and delicate while at the same time eerily claustrophobic, like the opening scenes of Blue Velvet. Jarrett fans will want this anyway; others will at least find it interestingly odd. --Roger Thomas

5.0 out of 5 stars Sometimes words just don't do it... 10 July 2007
By inkster
Format:Audio CD
What started life as a christmas present is one of the most honest sincere, heartfelt and musical albums I have ever heard. There is also no grunting and groaning here.
To me another huge Plus.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfection 14 Oct 2006
Format:Audio CD
This solo Piano album from Keith Jarrett is another reminder of the mans remarkable talents. As can be seen from the track listing these are all standards and Jarrett plays them as I have never heard him play before or since. These renditions are almost like recitals. I don't know how much improvisation there is on this album, but I suspect it is less than usual. The reason for this is that the recordings were the first he made during his recovery from the debilitating illness he suffered in the mid 1990's. In fact initially they were recorded only for his Wife and not neccessarily for commercial release.

Jarretts beautiful touch, phrasing and occasionally, such as on "I Got It Bad And That Ain't Good" his marvellous improvising skills are demonstrated to great effect. Really writing about this is futile, to appreciate this great album you need to listen to it.

5.0 out of 5 stars The beauty of stillness 31 Jan 2006
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is a wonderfully atmospheric recording. Few things are more beautiful than an unadorned piano, and Jarrett keeps his lines simple and his focus on the melody. The results are truly lovely: this is a perfect album for dreaming, whether alone or with a lover. Its simplicity is haunting, and those who appreciate it most will understand that simplicity is the hardest thing to achieve.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful late-night disc 3 July 2007
Format:Audio CD
Knowing the context in which these recordings were produced (see previous review) deepens the poignancy evoked by such beautiful playing, but they stand up alone and on their own merits, from the first track to the last. There's delicacy here that's so fragile it almost hurts, but also a strength of purpose that's invigorating. As the title suggests, this is a wonderful late-night disc; personal, mellow, shimmering and very, very moving. It restores one's faith in the ability of human beings to bring meaning to our troubled world.

Thie CD will grow and grow on you. Yes it lacks the grunts and groans which are more usually associated with Kieth Jarrett, however, open up to it and what you get is a delicate and reflective CD which displays Kieth Jarrett's gentler piano skills full of inflection and sensitivity.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning playing in simplicy 23 April 2000
Format:Audio CD
Absolute Stunning interpretations by Keith. Simplicty is the most difficult playing, and this is great! , not one single note out of place. Remarkable indeed! Maybe not suitable for lisiteners who prefer a kind of showy or circus exhibitionist playing, but suitable for the real piano lovers who know how difficult it is to put even one right note in the right place. A monument!

5.0 out of 5 stars An intimate and relaxed recording 12 Oct 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
There is no question that The Melody at Night with You is a reverential nod in the direction of Bill Evans, one of Keith Jarrett's major influences. Nevertherless, the way in which he plays 'I'm through with Love' and the stunning opening rendition of 'I loves you Porgy' suggests that he has returned to music refreshed following his enforced lengthy lay-off.
This album goes well with a loved one and a glass of wine, but equally would do well if you were on your own. The solo piano album always has an 'after hours' feel to it and this is no exception: the way in which the listener is offered a warm pair of slippers and a comfortable chair in front of an open fire should not to be passed up. Great music, superbly played and recorded - Jarrett's usual peripheral squeals and humming are conspicuous by their absence, but they are not missed. This recording should go down as one of Jarrett's most accomplished and most contented.
This is the sort of recording you will find yourself returning to over and over again; it will send you to sleep for the all the right reasons.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a Must 3 Mar 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
A side from John McArthur's, Hidden album, this will be the best solo piano album of the 21st Century. And both are going to be hard to beat. A must for any lover the ivory, wood and keys.
