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.
