If you listen to the rendition of "Autumn Leaves" on the standards trio's At the Blue Note box set, you hear the group giving a more restless and energetic performance of the song than usual, that suddenly kicks into a meditative groove in a manner that feels like the façade of the song has been thrown off, revealing some hot universal energy that was inside, or behind it all along.
It appears as though the music featured on this record is what the standards trio sometimes spontaneously launch into at their concerts of jazz standards. The amazing thing with this record is that, while it consists of extracts from four concerts recorded days apart, it feels like one continuous piece of music, as though the concerts are a process of passing through into a higher state, universal and changeless. Recently I have been particularly drawn to the final track, "Ecstasy", as it represents the culmination of the whole process, a final way station on the road towards silence, in which the energies of the three jazz musicians at their most passionate coalesce into a shimmering, convulsing wall of noise.
As noted at the beginning of this review, there have been several other recordings of the meditative music heard here, but none have the impact of this record because, ironically as the pieces are taken out of their context as part of separate concerts of standards, their power is in standing together as a continuous canon.
This is simply one of the best jazz albums I have heard because it doesnt sound like so many other american jazz trios/quartets of the 80s/90s.
A lot of that stuff, whilst I adore much of it has to be appreciated by careful listening, whereas this is just flows effortlessly.
To me this is the sound of a group of musicians who are playing a smokefilled badly lit late night gig in a small bar and are entertaining with some smooth and gentle tunes. Its not 3 musicians who all need their 15 minutes of fame in the form of indulgent solos, but rather, friends all playing to each other strengths in support of one another.
After listening to this I have tried out 5-6 of jarretts other LPs, but niether the concerts, standards, or personal mountains surpass this. In fact nothing other than a love supreme by coltrane can force this out of my CD player.
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

laid back, mesmerising, intricate but apparently simple, controlled and quite brilliant - why would you not want to listen to this.Published on 18 Oct. 2013 by Welk
A prolific piano genius, Jarrett releases so much material that he can often end up being self-indulgent in his side projects. "Changeless" is such a disc ... Read morePublished on 20 May 2001
