Album Review

Sure, the Keith Jarrett Trio of the '80s and '90s recorded way too much music for the casual fan to absorb. But one's reservations fade when confronted with the sheer creativity and empathy that the trio displayed in this gorgeously recorded live date at New York's Town Hall. As in several albums before, the emphasis for Jarrett, Gary Peacock and Jack DeJohnette is on standards, save for a sole ostinato-based Jarrett original (the title track). "Bemsha Swing" finds Jarrett at very nearly his best, transforming standard material completely in his own funky manner. In addition, there is a really beautiful rendition of Oscar Levant's "Blame It on My Youth," and an eloquently harmonized "Body and Soul" with generous solo space for Peacock. There is some squeaky vocalizing by Jarrett over some of his solos, but not enough to deter anyone from enjoying this 77-minute outpouring of first-class improvisational jazz. ~ Richard S. Ginell, Rovi

Awesome

The whole trio is great here, but Jarrett really shines. Check out the piano on Bemsha Swing and you'll know what I'm talking about. I just bought this yesterday, and Im lovin it...if you like Jazz, you like this album.

Best Trio in Jazz

The music these three guys make is astounding. Everytime I listen to this group I am constantly rewarded with great musicianship, constant surprises and sheer excitement. For me there is no more original or exciting drummer in the world today than Jack DeJohnette. Like most everything else this group has recorded my recommendation is to buy this album and play it. A lot!

vocalizing

man's an artist makes vocal noises as he strains expressing himself -- I rather this than 100% of so called alternative band's 'vocalizing'
