iTunes Editors’ Notes

Pianist Keith Jarrett is famous for his landmark The Koln Concert album, which documented a transcendent concert-length improvisation from 1975. He went on to become one of jazz’s most prolific, notable, and demanding solo musicians (both of himself and his audience), but he suffered a debilitating case of chronic fatigue syndrome in the late ‘90s. Recorded at his home studio as a Christmas present for his wife in late 1997, this will be remembered as the first steps of his return. We get a subtlety of touch, phrasing, and lyricism here. He digs deep into the melodies for tender readings of “Someone to Watch Over Me,” “I Loves You, Porgy,” and “Something to Remember You By.” Also included here are remarkably straight readings of the folk standards “My Wild Irish Rose” and “Shenandoah.” Newly remastered for iTunes, this new version only enhances the album's quiet beauty.

Customer Reviews

from the heart

This is one those CDs that will always stay by my side, and the kind of timeless performance that comes from deep within one's soul. This doesn't highlight Jarrett's virtuosity, but rather his vulnerable, human side, that did indeed come from a rough time in his life...

Moving!

I absolutely love this album, and have played it so much I have worn the CD out. I find it to be very moving. This was my first introduction to Keith Jarrett, and because of this album I have bought many more... Have you ever witnessed him in concert, you can see him playing these songs in one's mind's eye with all the emotion you hear in them. Enjoy!

The Melody At Night, With You

KJ keeps the melody of well known tunes largely intact and creates an album unlike most of his others. Wonderful, mellow, contemplative, relaxing, uplifting. Always leaves me feeling warm inside. In my top 10 all-time CDs.

Pianist, composer, and bandleader Keith Jarrett is one of the most prolific, innovative, and iconoclastic musicians to emerge from the late 20th century. As a pianist (though that is by no means the only instrument he plays), he literally changed the conversation in jazz by introducing an entirely new aesthetic regarding solo improvisation in concert. Though capable of playing in a wide variety of styles, Jarrett is deeply grounded in the jazz tradition. He has recorded nearly 80 albums...
