Keith JarrettBackhand (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
ABC/Impulse (Japan), 1974. Used ... $19.99
Prime Keith Jarrett on Impulse Records – and a still-wonderful session that features work by Dewey Redman, Charlie Haden, and Paul Motian! The sound here is a bit more focused than on some of Jarrett's earlier Impulse sides – but still has that rich and organic sound overall – blending instruments from all players with a sound that's spontaneous and flowing. Jarrett himself plays a bit of percussion and wood flute – and Redman also plays maracas and musette! Tracks are long, and include "Kuum", "Inflight", "Vapallia", and "Backhand". CD

Keith JarrettByablue (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Impulse (Japan), 1976. Used ... $23.99
There's a nicely warming vibe on this album from Keith Jarrett – a sound that's sometimes a bit more laidback and personal, but which is still carried off with familiar associates Dewey Redman on tenor, Charlie Haden on bass, and Paul Motian on drums! Most of the tunes are shorter compositions built around gently lyrical lines – somewhat introspective, and a bit less organic than in years past – but in a way that more than makes up for that difference with their own inner beauty. Titles include "Konya", "Rainbow", "Trieste", "Fantasm", "Yahllah", and "Byablue". CD

Keith JarrettFort Yawuh (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Impulse (Japan), 1973. Used Gatefold ... $14.99
Great Impulse work from Keith Jarrett – recorded at a time when he had a lot sharper edge than later years, and was really matching the spirit of some of the post-Coltrane generation players on the label! The date's a live one, and features some relatively extended tracks – tunes that aren't exactly free, but which roll along with a very open sensibility – almost growing organically in sound from contributions by all players! Jarrett's on piano, of course – and other members of the group include Dewey Redman on tenor and Chinese Musett, Charlie Haden on bass, Paul Motian on drums, and Danny Johnson on percussion – all working wonderfully together. Titles include "De Drums", "Fort Yawuh", "(If The) Misfits (Wear It)", and "Still Life Still Life". CD

Keith JarrettMysteries (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Impulse (Japan), 1976. Used ... $19.99
Dark and moody work from Keith Jarrett – a record that builds strongly off his ensemble feeling of the Impulse years, but which also seems to carry a bit more of the introspective vibe he was building up in some of his more stripped down solo recordings! The group's still a great one here – with Dewey Redman on reeds, Charlie Haden on bass, Paul Motian on drums, and Guilhermo Franco on percussion – and the tunes, although long and somewhat free, still show Jarrett's great ear for a lyrical melody – carried off wonderfully without cliche, and still with more sharp edges than you might expect. Titles include "Rotation", "Everything That Lives Laments", "Flame", and "Mysteries". CD

Keith JarrettShades ... LP
ABC/Impulse, 1976. Very Good+ ... $7.99
A lost gem from Keith's "with horns" period – a quintet session from the mid 70s, recorded with a group that features Dewey Redman on tenor, plus Charlie Haden on bass, Paul Motian on drums and percussion, and Guilherme Franco on additional percussion. The feel is a bit straighter than Jarrett's excellent Death & The Flower set – as the tunes have a highly rhythmic component, and make good use of the extra percussion to create a flowing, organic groove. There's still a nice loose feel overall, though – almost a take on the loft jazz sound, especially at the moments when Jarrett goes a bit outside on piano. Titles include "Shades Of Jazz", "Southern Smiles", "Rose Petals", and "Diatribe". LP, Vinyl record album

Keith JarrettSolo Concerts – Bremen Lausanne (3LP set) ... LP
ECM, 1973. Very Good+ 3LP Box + Booklet ... $9.99
Sublime solo piano – from that early 70s moment when Keith Jarrett was not only finding a whole new voice for himself, but also creating a whole new format in music! The tracks here are all long, live, solo improvisations – played by Jarrett at a level that's unbridled, but never totally free jazz – full of spirit and imagination, and always with this sense of tunefulness that's maybe even more impressive than if he was playing in a noisier way! LP, Vinyl record album

ECM (Japan), 1989. Used 2CDs ... $29.99
A great early trio moment from Keith Jarrett – a set that steps off some of his previous Standards albums for ECM, but which also has more of a personal flavor as well! The group here is that great combo with Gary Peacock on bass and Jack DeJohnette on drums – both really open, fluid players who make the music really sparkle alongside Jarrett's piano – offering up tunes that are mostly standards, but in really unique variations! The album's a tribute to key musical heroes – Lee Konitz, Jim Hall, Bill Evans, John Coltrane, and others – but the overall sound is pure Jarrett all the way through, on titles that include "Lover Man", "Solar", "Sun Prayer", "Little Girl Blue", "U Dance", "Ballad Of The Sad Young Men", and "All The Things You Are".

Pretty trippy stuff – duets between Jarrett and DeJohnette, in a variety of modes that run from out and improvised, to mellower and modal. Jarrett plays piano, electric piano, organ, and flute – and DeJohnette plays a variety of percussion. Titles include "Ruta & Daitya", "Sounds Of Peru", "Pastel Morning", "You Know You Know", and "All We Got". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Keith JarrettAfter The Fall ... CD
ECM, 1998. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Beautiful work from that legendary trio that featured Keith Jarrett on piano, Gary Peacock on bass, and Jack DeJohnette on drums – the group that was sometimes known as Jarrett's "Standards" trio, but which could do so much more than such a name might imply! The songs are familar, and some are jazz standards – but they're also delivered with this fluid sense of shape and tone that's the best illustration of the group dynamics of each member – Peacock's sublime bass given more of a rhythmic focus than on some ECM albums, DeJohnette both open and swinging on the kit – and Jarrett bringing that exploratory vibe of his solo performances, but with more rhythm and interplay. Titles include "The Masquerade Is Over", "Old Folks", "Scrapple From The Apple", "Doxy", "One For Majid", "Moment's Notice", "When I Fall In Love", and even a reading of "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town".

Impulse (Japan), 1978. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
No bebop here, despite what you might guess from the title – and instead an album of much freer lines and wider musical vision, captured with Keith Jarrett's famous group of the 70s! Jarrett plays a bit of soprano sax alongside his piano, and the rest of the quartet features Dewey Redman on tenor and musette, Charlie Haden on bass, and Paul Motian on drums and percussion – all in a mode that's somewhat quieter and not as earthy as their early 70s sides together, but still filled with the great sense of interplay that made the group a noteworthy one. Titles include "Pyramids Moving", "Mushi Mushi", "Silence", "Gotta Get Some Sleep", and "Blackberry Winter". CD

✨✧ Keith JarrettFacing You ... CD
ECM (Germany), 1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A key early moment for Keith Jarrett – his first-ever solo album, recorded in the early 70s for ECM – and the start of a huge legacy of later work! Before this set, Jarrett had recorded some compelling trio material for Atlantic – and he was also exploring more spiritually soulful tones over at Impulse Records too. But this record is something else entirely – a new showcase for his sensitive expressions – the kind of angular, yet poetic lines that sparkled strongly in the trio recordings, yet stand out even more on their own! Tunes are beautifully penned – and titles include "In Front", "Ritooria", "Lalene", "Starbright", "Vapallia", and "Semblence". CD

✨✧ Keith JarrettKoln Concert ... CD
ECM (Germany), 1975. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A genre-defining moment from pianist Keith Jarrett – a record that really set the world on fire, and which continues to charm all these many decades later! Although Jarrett had already made some amazing music in a trio setting during the 60s, and in his more freewheeling groups with Dewey Redman in the early 70s, it's this sort of format that forever put him on the map – long, extended improvised passages on solo piano – played at a level that's still extremely lyrical, tuneful, and thoughtful – quite different than the free jazz waves that were building at the time! And while so many other people copied the style over the years, nobody does it better than Jarrett – especially on this landmark outing for the style. The work is amazing – extremely compelling as little melodies drift in and out of the waves of piano improvisation – without any of the sloppiness of some of Jarrett's imitators, and a surprising sense of soul and direction throughout!

One of the crowning moments of Keith Jarrett's longform improvised style of the 70s – a huge batch of concert material recorded in Japan – done in a style that's similar to his famous Koln and Berlin concert records! The album features different performances from Kyoto, Osaka, Nagoya, Tokyo, and Sapporo – each titled after the city itself, and laid out without much in the way of other ornamentation or explanation – which creates an even greater focus on Jarrett's amazing work on piano, and his nonstop energy to create! In a beautiful bookbound case, with a booklet of photos very much in the minimalist ECM style. Very nice! LP, Vinyl record album

Ultra-hip work from pianist Keith Jarrett – a session that's filled with joy and life, and which has a lot more energy than some of his albums for ECM! The work here is kind of a refinement of the freer styles that Jarrett had laid down on previous albums – performed with a strongly rhythmic undercurrent, but one that also opens up to some strong top-end melodies as well – played not only by Jarrett on piano, but also by Dewey Redman on tenor, in a group with Sam Brown on guitar, Paul Motian on drums, and Guilherme Franco and Danny Johnson on percussion. Titles include "The Rich & The Poor", "Blue Streak", "Le Mistral", "Angles Without Edges", "Treasure Island", and "Sister Fortune". CD

✨✧ Art BlakeyButtercorn Lady ... CD
Limelight/Elemental (Spain), 1966. New Copy ... About June 15, 2018
An unusual little record from Art Blakey – a live set recorded at the Lighthouse in 1966, with a band that includes the surprising lineup of Keith Jarrett on piano and Chuck Mangione on trumpet! If you're surprised at the mix of players, and figure that they won't groove with Blakey's soulful approach – don't worry, as Art's still strongly at the helm, and manages to get incredibly tight performances out of both of them – really forging them strongly into a Jazz Messengers groove! The group also features Frank Mitchell on tenor and Reggie Johnson on bass – and Mangione wrote a number of the tracks for the album, including "Buttercorn Lady", a nice funky soul jazz groover, "Recuerdo", with a bit of a Latin feel, and "Between Races", a charger in typical Jazz Messengers style!

Posi tone, 2017. New Copy ... $6.99 15.99
Top shelf jazz trio from pianist Jon Davis – an artist who might look pretty laidback, sipping wine on the cover – but who serves up some great original material as well as key takes on some classics! Working with bassist Boris Kozlov and drummer Mark Ferber on this one, Davis earnestly sets out to pay homage to the 60s modern piano jazz genius of his five favorite players – and also manages to really show some of his own best work – a really impressive feat! The originals shine brightly – including "Happy Juice", "Slant Six", "As We Know", "Bred On Read" and "Mostly Minor" – and fit in seamlessly with the nods to classics by Bill Evans, Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea, McCoy Tyner and Keith Jarrett – including "The Two Lonely People", "Tones For Joans Bones", "Speak Like A Child", "Search For People" and "Rainbow". Wonderful stuff! CD

A beautiful combination of piano and vibes from this Croatian duo – one that's shaped nicely by the early 70s experiments of Keith Jarrett and Gary Burton, but which also features a few songs by Pat Metheny too! Matija Dedic has a style that's a bit more down to earth than Keith Jarrett – even on Jarrett's tunes – maybe lighter and more lyrical – which makes for a compelling match with the vibes of Simun Matisic, whose rich tones ring out from his instrument in a really powerful way. Titles include versions of the Jarrett songs "Fortune Smiles", "Coral", and "In Your Quiet Place – plus versions of Pat Metheney songs "Farmer's Trust", "Question & Answer", "Sirabhorn", "James", and "Missouri Uncompromised". Also includes takes on Chic Corea's "La Fiesta" and "Armando's Rhumba". CD

Svein Finnerud TrioPlastic Sun ... CD
Odin (Norway), 1970. New Copy ... $16.99
The album that forever put Norwegian pianist Svein Finnerud on the map – a piano trio album from the start of the 70s, and one that's every bit as open and free-thinking as the best work of the time from Keith Jarrett or Steve Kuhn! As with both of those musicians, Finnerud's got this way of opening up completely new concepts in melody and rhythm, but almost always without using any darker or noisier jazz modes – so that even when his trio is completely unbridled, they seem to have this sense of soul and swing that's completely fantastic! The link is especially strongest to Kuhn's most compelling work in his early years, and the set also features two Annette Peacock tunes – which should also be a bit of a reference. Titles include "Touching", "Plastic Sun", "Dee Dee", "Strings", "Parelius N", "Cartoon", and "Alnafet Street". CD

A lost vocal set by Tom Lellis – a virtually unknown singer with a sound that's a lot like Mark Murphy in the 70s! Like Mark, Tom's got a richly expressive voice and a love for vocalizing classic jazz tunes. He's also a heck of a songwriter, too – and has penned about half the tracks on this set, including some really nice little tunes with a soulful approach that pushes past Murphy's usual way of putting over a song. The group on the album's great, too – and includes Ron Busch on vibes, Jeremy Steig on flute, and Eddie Gomez on bass. Titles include versions of Keith Jarrett's "Lucky Southern", Miles Davis' "ESP", McCoy Tyner's "Man From Tanganyika", and Chick Corea's "Times Lie" – plus the original tunes "Lluvia", "One On One", "Nightshades", and "Atlantis Pompeii & Athens".

Hi Hat, 1966. New Copy 2CD ... $22.99
A brilliant live performance from saxophonist Charles Lloyd – music that stands as a great addition to his more spiritual Atlantic Records material of the 60s! Lloyd's group here has a really progressive approach to rhythm – no surprise, as the lineup features a young Keith Jarrett on piano, Cecil McBee on bass, and Jack DeJohnette on drums – all players who would blossom to even more importance in later years, but who are completely fantastic in the company of Lloyd. The concert setting of these songs seems to bring out something slightly different and special – even compared to some of the Atlantic live recordings – and the 2CD set features material recorded for radio in Antibes, Stockholm, and Cologne – the last of which even features a few "with orchestra" tracks. Titles include "Love Ship", "Autumn Sequence", "Tribal Sun", "Love Song To A Baby", "Song My Lady Sings", "East Of The Sun", "Island Blues", and "Forest Flower". CD

The record's got a fluid grace that easily puts Makowicz in the company of heavyweight contemporaries like Keith Jarrett, Bill Evans, and Steve Kuhn – and like all 3 players in the 70s, his work on this set is a gently careful exploration of sound, space, and color – shifting sometimes into more traditional piano modes, but mostly in a subtly free 70s mode. Titles include "Passiflora", "Raz Tak Raz Nie", "Ballada Dla R", "Artysta Kabaretowy", "Opalizacja", and "Milowe Kroki", a nice take on "Giant Steps"! CD

Roedelius/KasarEinfluss ... CD
Deutsche Grammophon, 2017. New Copy ... $9.99 16.99
A beautiful collaboration between two different generations of German music – the legendary Hans Joachim Roedelius, whose albums of the 70s set a whole new standard for minimalism, both on his own, and with the group Cluster – and younger pianist Arnold Kasar, who turns out to be a perfect fit for the spirit of Hans Joachim on the set! The pair mostly duet on pianos, but also use some electronics, too – with a style that's spacious, but warm – very much in the best spirit of some of the more acoustic Roedelius moments from the early 80s – a time when his piano work was almost like an underground answer to Keith Jarrett's improvisations. There's more structure here, but still the same sense of openness – and titles include "Neris", "Ybbs", "On The Fly", "Rolling", "Wiese", "Wehra", "Sula", "Restonica", "Piave", and "Finne". CD

✨✧ AirtoReturn To Forever (aka Free – with bonus tracks) ... CD
CTI/Wounded Bird, 1972. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the coolest, grooviest albums you'll ever hear from the legendary percussionist Airto – a set that mixes his own Brazilian roots with the electric genius of 70s CTI – all with stunning results! Airto's in the lead – and blows some beautiful wood flute lines alongside percussion – but the album also features killer contributions from Joe Farrell on soprano sax, Hubert Laws on flute, Keith Jarrett on piano, and Chick Corea on Fender Rhodes – as well as a hip bit of vocals from Flora Purim as well! There's some added horns at parts – but the arrangements are relatively spare and subtle – so that most tracks have a core organic quality, very similar to Airto's work on Buddah/Cobblestone, but given a bit more of a CTI twist. Most tunes are quite long and free-flowing – and titles include "Lucky Southern", "Flora's Song", "Creek (Arroio)", and "Return To Forever". Also features bonus tracks "So Tender", "Creek (alt)", and "Jequie". CD

Ron Carter & Billy Cobham provide a tight but elastic rhythmic underpinning – a great foil for solos by players who include Keith Jarrett on electric piano, George Benson on guitar, Hubert Laws on flute, and Freddie himself on trumpet. Airto & Ray Barretto are on percussion, with some nice percolating accents to the grooves – and titles include the classic "Povo", an oft-sampled monster – plus "In A Mist", "The Godfather", and "Sky Dive".

Odin (Norway), 1970. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
The album that forever put Norwegian pianist Svein Finnerud on the map – a piano trio album from the start of the 70s, and one that's every bit as open and free-thinking as the best work of the time from Keith Jarrett or Steve Kuhn! As with both of those musicians, Finnerud's got this way of opening up completely new concepts in melody and rhythm, but almost always without using any darker or noisier jazz modes – so that even when his trio is completely unbridled, they seem to have this sense of soul and swing that's completely fantastic! The link is especially strongest to Kuhn's most compelling work in his early years, and the set also features two Annette Peacock tunes – which should also be a bit of a reference. Titles include "Touching", "Plastic Sun", "Dee Dee", "Strings", "Parelius N", "Cartoon", and "Alnafet Street". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Roedelius/KasarEinfluss (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Deutsche Grammophon, 2017. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A beautiful collaboration between two different generations of German music – the legendary Hans Joachim Roedelius, whose albums of the 70s set a whole new standard for minimalism, both on his own, and with the group Cluster – and younger pianist Arnold Kasar, who turns out to be a perfect fit for the spirit of Hans Joachim on the set! The pair mostly duet on pianos, but also use some electronics, too – with a style that's spacious, but warm – very much in the best spirit of some of the more acoustic Roedelius moments from the early 80s – a time when his piano work was almost like an underground answer to Keith Jarrett's improvisations. There's more structure here, but still the same sense of openness – and titles include "Neris", "Ybbs", "On The Fly", "Rolling", "Wiese", "Wehra", "Sula", "Restonica", "Piave", and "Finne".

✨✧ AirtoFree ... LP
CTI, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
One of the coolest, grooviest albums you'll ever hear from the legendary percussionist Airto – a set that mixes his own Brazilian roots with the electric genius of 70s CTI – all with stunning results! Airto's in the lead – and blows some beautiful wood flute lines alongside percussion – but the album also features killer contributions from Joe Farrell on soprano sax, Hubert Laws on flute, Keith Jarrett on piano, and Chick Corea on Fender Rhodes – as well as a hip bit of vocals from Flora Purim as well! There's some added horns at parts – but the arrangements are relatively spare and subtle – so that most tracks have a core organic quality, very similar to Airto's work on Buddah/Cobblestone, but given a bit more of a CTI twist. Most tunes are quite long and free-flowing – and titles include "Lucky Southern", "Flora's Song", "Creek (Arroio)", and "Return To Forever". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Warren BernhardtFloating ... CD
Novus/Sony (Japan), 1978. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A beautiful album from pianist Warren Bernhardt – maybe one of his most introspective sets of the early years, and one with a fantastic close-up focus on his acoustic piano talents! Despite Bernhardt's presence in a late 70s scene that featured many fusion artists, his most sensitive side often seemed to be in his work on acoustic piano – which is on full display here, on a set of tracks that are mostly solo, and which have this very unique voice. Bernhardt's got some of the flowing lyricism of Keith Jarrett, but also brings things in more sharply – letting his more open moments mix with tuneful passages in this really great way – and leaving us breathless at his ability to do so much with so little, yet all in a very understated way. Titles include "Metrics", "Mirror", "Song To My Father", "Snow Birds", and "Floating". CD

✨✧ Matthew ShippInvisible Touch At Taktlos Zurich ... CD
Hatology (Switzerland), 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Matthew Shipp's been an amazing pianist for quite sometime – but occasionally, we'll forget how great he can be – and it takes a record like this to jog our memory! The set is all solo, with Shipp exhibiting an amazing command of the keyboard – really reaching out to shape sound in special ways, and often create these progressions that hint towards melody, but often step sideways into their own sonic territory – free, but never too loose – showing the confidence of Shipp in the direction he's taking the music! And while sometimes such a setting can make us think that the pianist is just winding us up, there's a real sense of cohesion here – maybe almost in the territory of some of the Keith Jarrett live solo improvisations, although each selection here is relatively short. Titles include "Blue In Orion", "Monk's Nightmare", "Intro Z", "Pocket", "Gamma Ray", "Piece Within Piece", and "Fairplay". CD
