I'm experiencing a moderate case of PJD (Post Jarrett Depression) after soaking in his solo Carnegie Hall concert tonight. He seems to rip the piano open to fully expose its soul. Here is a man who is not afraid to go on stage in front of a full house at CH and make stuff up on the spot for 3 hours). An unusual concert, great, EVERY NOTE perfect and different than anything I'm heard him do before. Lots of kinda simple triad/tonal stuff, all short improvs, Bach-like fugues with more modern harmonies, not a note of jazz, couple of great boogies. Interesting hands-over-hands techniques create a sweeping flow up and down the keyboard, unexpected harmonies, endless layering of controlled sounds to create a rich musical landscape in every improvisation.

Pure heart with incredible complexity of moving parts. He has imagined the piano in a way that puts him in a completely different universe from any other human. He is the greatest pianist who ever lived, period.

I take it no one sneezed, coughed, cleared their throat or forgot to silence their cell phone.

Dave, I just couldn't resist!

I'm glad Mr. Jarrett floats your boat.

@MusicMe
There was someone who was moaning through the majority of the performance. Seemed to get louder when the music intensity increased. Guess we'll never know...

Haha, it's interesting to hear which notes he sings along with when he gets into it. It's often a slow-moving inner line, sometimes the top melody. There was minimal coughing, he seems to be coming to terms with that these days, even inviting it during the space between tunes). At the exact end of an improv, somebody coughed and he said the coughing person coughed at exactly the right time.

I applaud him for working on his demons. He was a delight to be with and had us laughing a good deal too..

Hi Dave,
Good to hear that about KJ relaxing his silence policies. I too enjoy his live solo piano flights very much. Do you know if a recording or video of his recent concert will be available soon? Thanks! smile

If they do, will they edit out the moaning?

You never quite know what Keith will release next, maybe it will be stoned guitar music recorded onto cassette 30 years ago or maybe some antique trio music from 1972. They will probably be releasing new Jarrett cds for the next 50 years with every concert he has ever played.
