Some Keith Jarrett albums I really like.
Kenny Wheeler – Gnu High (ECM)
1975, this is a killer album: Kenny Wheeler (flugelhorn), Keith Jarrett (piano), Dave Holland (bass), Jack DeJohnette (drums).
Gary Peacock – Tales of Another (ECM)
An early 1977 version of the Standards trio, before they became “Jarrett’s band”. I’ve had this album for years, I feel so comfortable with it. Another kick ass platter.
2010 duo with Charlie Haden, this is an intimate set and has really grown on me.
Jarrett on pipe organ. I wrote about this one before. Could we have more albums like this 1976 recording, please?
Keith Jarrett – Live at the Deer Head Inn (ECM)
1992 live trio with the late Paul Motian on drums. All ya gotta do is use a different drummer and everything changes.
Keith Jarrett – Dark Intervals (ECM)
Solo piano, I don’t like ’em all, but I do like this one from 1987.
Recently released 1979 archive recording from ECM, quite a winner. I really like the studio recordings from this band too.
I can’t say his work with Miles Davis tickled my ears, but it could still happen someday.
Yes to the Standards Trio playing standards, I’m working on liking the other albums from that band.
Thanks for posting! I agree, SPHERES is incredible, I’m always looking to find more albums like that one. Gnu High, Deer Head and Dark Intervals are all on my list too, have you heard Book Of Ways? It’s just clavichord improvisations. Facing you is another must-have for me. I didn’t know about the release under Gary Peacock’s name, I will be checking it out.
I haven’t heard the Book of Ways yet, I will eventually.
