Forest Flower Sunrise/Sunset

This is a must have classic. I was actually there at the 1965 Monterey Jazz Festival (you can hear airplanes during some of the soft passages). He brought the house down. His sax is forceful, driving, then soft, melodic and haunting. The pinging sounds at the end is Keith reaching into the piano and finger plucking strings like a harp or some African instrument. The crowd goes wild. This propelled Charles Lloyd career which has been under-estimated and under-appreciated. But probably just as important, it later launched the most memorable career of Keith Jarrett who enjoyed much greater success and wider acclaim. This was a rare momemt in time. There are many classics such as this that are not available on CD. This one is a must have for any serious jazz lover.

Classic recording

Phenomenal, free-flying playing by everyone on this recording. Most impressive to think that Keith Jarrett was a mere 21 years old on this recording date (1966). Listen to him pull out all the stops on the title track. I only wish the entire recording were available.

A Magical Moment in Time

My sister brought "Forest Flower" home after her first semester in college. I listened to it a week straight, non-stop. Forty-some years later I'm still listening and still sharing in the joy of what was a magical moment in time. If I could go back in time, one stop would be to hear "Forest Flower" live.
