's really pushing himself here – playing piano with some of the freewheeling qualities that would make him a huge new talent in the 70s, and also picking up some other instruments as well! Although the set's billed to a trio – Jarrett
with Charlie Haden on bass and Paul Motian on drums – the overall sound is way more than just your usual piano record, thanks to Keith
's use of soprano sax, steel drums, congas, and tape recorder – elements that fill the tunes in alongside his piano, and create some really surprising moments. Some tracks are beautifully warm and personal – the kind of lyrical modes that could have made Jarrett
a huge mainstream act, had he ever wanted to be more overtly commercial – and these are balanced nicely with the more experimental numbers, to keep a nice edge in the set. Titles include a nice version of Joni Mitchell's "All I Want", plus originals by Jarrett
that include "Standing Outside", "Traces Of You", "Trust", "Interlude No 3", and "Mourning Of A Star".
