Jarrett, Keith (piano) - Always Let Me Go

Leveranstid: Skickas vanligtvis inom 2-5 dagar
"What is most captivating about this virtuosic tour de force is the way this trio can, on a dime, turn outside in, pulling a melody and structure from thin air, usually at just the right moment, bringing everything back to earth with a bit of bluesy funk, a bit of wistful romanticism, a slice of bop or swing. "Hearts of Space," for example, starts just as the tiltel implies, but by the time it concludes Peacock is driving things with a walking bass, DeJohnette is purring along while still dropping those amazing bombs and Jarrett is rolling and swaying as tidily as Monk, doing that thing with melody that stretches or compresses the line like a rubber band - note values distorted while maintaining absolute form and porportion.The two discs are marvelously recorded, as always, and give ample room for all three to hold the spotlight: DeJohnette has never sounded so sophisticatedly primitive or Peacock so strong, so melodic, all while exploring that territory of intuition so well-known to Jarrett who, it seems, has managed to locate another 30 or 40 keys on his piano. Magic, madness, talent or genius' Inside or out' When you get to this level, it just doesn't matter."
(Mike Quinn, JazzTimes)

"Listening to improvised music is not a passive act; it's a creative process. This principle is especially true of the totally improvised work of Keith Jarrett, such as his 30-year series of solo concerts and his two most recent trio recordings, Inside Out and Always Let Me Go. Jarrett's inventive impulses are of a kind that allow us to follow. He places us on the leading edge of the moment in which choices are made, inviting our participation in decisions taken from infinite options. ... Music this free requires faith and inspiration from the listener, and it also makes value judgements even more than customarily subjective. ... On Always Let Me Go, recorded mostly live in Tokyo in April 2001, and one of Jarrett's major achievements on record, we're able to hear pieces like "Hearts In Space" and the 34½ -minute "Waves" round into form as whole long arcs. The fact that this wholeness is always in jeopardy-that it abides by no rules but its own, and that we feel like we discover it in the same moment as the trio-is what makes it exciting and fulfilling. Always Let Me Go sustains a heightened sense of imaginiative focus through its sudden shifts, peaks and valleys, the exquisitely realized songs within songs that the trio comes upon - and the dramatic swings of its dynamic scope. In tis 20th year, this trio keeps growing in its ability to challenge the creativity of its listeners."
(Thomas Conrad, Down Beat)

A new high-water mark in the life of the extraordinary trio of Keith Jarrett, Gary Peacock and Jack DeJohnette. Recorded on two nights in Tokyo last year, this double album is an endlessly fascinating document that takes the full measure of the group's creativity. Keith Jarrett describes the work as "free music that was not written, rehearsed or planned in advance of the performances." But Jarrett's free music embraces an enormous range of possibilities. There is an abundance of melody in these spontaneous constructions, and passing allusions to the entire history of jazz, though the music also reaches beyond it. There are cascades of sound, tremulous lyrical passages, deep grooves, wide-ranging dynamics, silences, and quiet dissonances. The range of possible references in this music runs from Thelonious Monk to Anton von Webern. The music couldn't have been played by anyone but Jarrett's trio, yet they have never sounded quite like this. Keith himself has described the music as "a volcanic eruption" and feels it is their best and most concentrated work to date.
