One of a Kind,
This review is from: The Koln Concert (Audio CD)
I first heard this music in 1975 or so, at a friend's house. I bought the two-disc LP right away. The first five notes blew me away, with their utter simplicity. What Jarret builds up from them is absolutely astonishing. It's not "classical"; it's not "jazz"; it's not "fusion"; it's not "New Age". It's something so completely UNLIKE any other piano music that I have ever heard, that it transcends description. Its melodic structure plays on the outer edges of consciousness. It's as though you never heard a piano before. It's so unlike most piano music that one expects the author to be an alien from outer space.
Jarrett "plays" the piano on this recording with an intensity and originality that defies description.

Hey Michael, you must be a real clairvoyant. The music was recorded on January 24th 1975!
However, it's long ago and I felt the same passion for the music back then ;)
Best - Chris
