EN AV ÅRETS BÄSTA SKIVOR 2009 ENLIGT SVENSKA DAGBLADET

HÖGSTA BETYG I SVENSKA DAGBLADET

"På sina senare solokonserter, som Radiance och The Carnegie Hall Concert, har Keith Jarrett improviserat i kortare, mer koncentrerade delar. Dessa har bildat en tematisk eller modal svit, där sjuttiotalskonserterna vällde fram i mäktiga sjok. Men utgångspunkten är densamma: ett tömt medvetande och ett fritt sökande där den ena konfigurationen banar väg för nästa. Testament innehåller tre skivor med två konserter från slutet av förra året. Londonkonserten är mer temperamentsfylld, Pariskonserten intellektuellt sökande. Men båda uttrycker den gudabenådade skönhet som Keith Jarrett skapar i ögonblicket. Det är fulländad musik."
(Svenska Dagbladet)

- Solo music from the great American pianist, recorded at the end of last year, released as a specially priced 3-CD set - three albums for the price of a double-album.

- At the end of 2008, Keith Jarrett added two concerts to his schedule at short notice - one at Paris's Salle Pleyel (November 26), one at London's Royal Festival Hall (December 1) . The results were outstanding, even by Jarrett's own high standards, with powerful emotions never far from the music's surface. The music on "Testament" is from these two concerts.

- These are recordings to put alongside the very finest in Jarrett's solo idiom. The open format, embracing much music in shorter episodes, makes the work in "the tradition" of "Radiance", but there are also flashes of the existential poetic flair which made for instance the "Sun Bear Concerts" a special musical experience.

- Solo recordings have accounted for some of Keith Jarrett's best-loved discs - from "Facing You" and "The Köln Concert" to "Vienna Concert", "La Scala" "The Carnegie Hall Concert" and more. "Testament" is certain to be one of the season's best-selling albums.

- In his liner notes, Jarrett gives a highly personal account of the music's inspirational genesis.

- "Testament" issued in time for Jarrett's two solo concerts this autumn - in Brussels and Berlin (9th and 12th of October).

Background
The history of Keith Jarrett's improvised solo piano performances goes back more than 30 years. His albums, such as the now legendary "Solo Concerts, Bremen-Lausanne", and "Köln Concert", were recordings that had an enormous impact on contemporary jazz. As Jarrett said at the time: "Solo Concerts was intended to be an injection of the strength of acoustic music, of air, of strings of breath into the bloodstream of people who buy records." It was this and more. "The Köln Concert", of course, was to become one of the best-selling 'jazz' albums of all time, as well as the best-selling solo piano album in any genre, an album whose popularity has never waned.

When incapacitated by illness in the late 1990s it was via the solo piano medium that Jarrett made his return, with the home-recorded "The Melody At Night, With You", an album of songs stripped to their essential core, which found a broad resonance with the general public.

Since his return to the concert platform, he has strictly rationed the number of solo performances: there have been less than thirty in the last decade. Their status as special events is underlined by the highly-focussed music on such recordings as "Radiance", "The Carnegie Hall Concert" and the DVD "Tokyo Solo".

Now "Testament" further documents the exceptional nature of Keith Jarrett's solo music in the 21st century.

From Jarrett's liner notes: "The concert went on and, though the beginning was a dark, searching, multi-tonal melodic triumph, by the end it somehow became a throbbing, never-to-be-repeated, pulsing rock band of a concert (unless it was a church service, in which case, Hallelujah!)."
