Jarrett's first outing 'the shape of things to come',
By A Customer
This review is from: Facing You (Audio CD)
I remember first hearing this first solo album by Keith Jarrett way back in 1983, along with the Koln Concert. Looking back, it is a peculiar album as each piece presents, in compact form, many of what were to be some of Jarrett's trade mark elements. It would repay anyone to buy it and return to it now though, as it contains some haunting moments. Some of the pieces have an atmosphere that I don't think Jarrett ever re-created in his longer concert performances. CD sound quality, as in all ECM recordings, is also absolutely first class.
