This review is from: Changeless (Audio CD)
Jarrett, Peacock and de Johnette have been so prolific for so long (both together and apart) that it is inevitable that some releases will unjustly fade from public consciousness. Changeless has been well regarded by critics since its release and is one of my favourite recordings by the Standards Trio. While everyone (rightly) highlights the obvious technical feature, namely that there are no chord progressions, of at least equal merit in my eyes is the fact that this is one of the best examples of Jarrett's improvisatory zeal out of the solo piano setting (still his endearing contribution to music).
The music is melodic, propulsive, accessible and of considerable depth. The trio's telepathy is uncanny and the only downside is it does reinforce my sense of being undersold when I hear three questing, restless masters repeatedly revisit the Great American Songbook. On its terms and in context of such magnificent discographies, this is magical stuff
