Customer Review

on 10 June 2010
I was already a fan of Keith Jarrett. As a pianist myself, I actually attempt to play some transcriptions of his work. I first heard of this album via the blessed Dave Gelly of The Observer, and ordered it the same day. It is stunning. Just piano and bass, but you'd think at times it was a trio or quartet. The individual pieces are deeply-felt, and obviously long meditated; mostly without the pyrotechnics of some of KJ's concert stuff (both jazz and improvisations)- simple with the art that conceals art, lots of rich harmonic and rhythmic texture. KJ's own notes suggest that he sees the selection as a programme, both in terms of what he has released, and in its sequence on the CD. I can see that, but on the other hand, the quality is so focussed and intense that as the CD plays on there can be a sense of deja vu. Don't get me wrong - there is not a duff track here, but the set is perhaps a bit like a box of very rich chocolates - one or two at a time is really enough.
