5.0 out of 5 stars Keith Jarrett- Bregenz- Solo improvised concerts., 26 Dec 2002
This review is from: Concerts (Audio CD)
Many people, im sure, would be put off by the idea of a whole CD of improvised music. This is understandable, but the music of Jarrett defies all expectations and norms.
The CD is a live recording of a solo concert in Bregenz. As soon as the music starts, Jarrett begins in a romantic setting and gradually moves into a joyus bouncing passage- full of melody and a sure foot-tapper. As the concert goes on, the music changes colour and texture many times. There are dark sections, avant-garde sections- with Jarrett slapping and plucking the strings alongside beautifully romantic passages that suggest the influence of Ravel and Debussy.
For me, the highlight of the CD is the last encore- Heartland. How this piece of music was improvised is an awesome thought. It is a beautiful piece of music which moves Jarrett to groans of ecstacy and shouts. The audience are very grateful and i think this is one of Jarretts best- alongside Koln and La Scala. To me, it was worth buying just for the first 10 minutes and the encore. Great, great stuff.

This review is from: Concerts (Audio CD)
It doesn't get much better. This is Keith's heyday of groaning and piano thumping, and the musical variety on this concert is amazing, from ragtime to romanticism. Shame ECM have never released the orginal triple LP version, featuring the equally brilliant Munich concert. Still, until they do, this is one to get. God bless Keith.
