Keith JarrettChanges ... CD
ECM, 1983. Used ... $9.99
A great little trio session from Keith Jarrett – still in the mode of some of his other ECM work, but almost a bit more back to basics as well! The group here features Gary Peacock on bass and Jack DeJohnette on drums – both working beautifully with Keith in a flurry of colors, tones, and pulsating rhythms – the latter of which really drive along the two-part composition "Flying", which takes up most of the set. The shorter "Prism" completes the record – a number that's a bit more contemplative overall, and which features some of those beautifully rounded tones that were virtually Peacock's trademark at the time.

Keith JarrettEl Juicio (The Judgement)/Life Between The Exit Signs ... CD
Atlantic/Collectables, 1968/1975. Used ... $5.99
2 obscure early sessions by Keith Jarrett – back to back on one CD! El Juicio is wild and wonderful work by Keith – light years away from his records on ECM! The album features a quartet that includes Dewey Redman on tenor, Charlie Haden on bass, and Paul Motian on drums – but it's clearly Keith who's driving the bus here, taking lots of odd twists and turns for playful moments that come as an unexpected surprise. One of the best of these is the short percussion track "Pre Judgement Atmosphere", which almost sounds like a Moondog number – and another is the rollingly funky "Gypsy Moth", a tune that always seems to be careening out of control, but is never "outside", just percussively grooving. Side two features two longer jamming tracks that almost have a loft jazz feel – "El Juicio" and "Piece For Ornette" – and Keith plays alone on the track "Pardon My Rags". Life Between The Exit Signs is early trio work by Keith, a bit straighter than some of his 70s recordings – but in a good way, with kind of a New York modern groove that reminds us of early work by Paul Bley or Steve Kuhn! The trio's a very progressive group – with Charlie Haden on bass and Paul Motian on drums, making for a really open-ended approach to the rhythms – and the album includes the original compositions "Church Dreams", "Margot", "Long Time Gone", and "Love No 1 & 2".

✨✧ Keith JarrettExpectations ... CD
Columbia/Legacy (France), 1972. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A totally wonderful album from the young Keith Jarrett – and a set that's different than most of the pianist's other well-known modes – not his solo improvisations, not his successful trio material, and not even his more outside quartet modes of the 70s – but instead this incredible criss-crossing of sounds that really stands apart from most of his other records! The album features Keith on piano and soprano sax – an instrument he played more early on – in open, freewheeling tracks that often mix tuneful passages with more rhythmic pulsations – handled with a core group that includes Charlie Haden on bass and Paul Motian on drums, working with guitar from Sam Brown, tenor from Dewey Redman, percussion from Airto, and some larger string and brass arrangements too! Jarrett also plays electric piano at times, and the album has some of the lyricism of Treasure Island, but with a very different vibe – spun out beautifully over the space of the double-length set. Titles include "Take Me Back", "Expectations", "Vision", "Common Mama", "The Magician In You", "Sundance", "Nomads", and "Bring Back The Time When". CD

Keith JarrettHymns/Spheres ... LP
ECM, 1976. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $9.99
A very unusual record – one that has Keith Jarrett playing some solo organ – and a baroque organ at that – but in ways that are quite different than you might expect! The sounds here are amazing – almost noisy at points, as Jarrett really works the instrument in an exploration of textures and tones, less in a pursuit of melody – so what might initially look like one of Jarrett's neo-classical recordings is instead one of his most experimental – especially as the set moves on! "Hymn Of Remembrance" initiates the album – with a slightly sentimental quality – but Keith then shifts into his nine-part "Spheres" suite – which is full of amazing textures and sounds!

✨✧ Keith JarrettKoln Concert ... CD
ECM (Germany), 1975. Used ... $4.99
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!

Keith JarrettMultitude Of Angels (4CD set) ... CD
ECM (Germany), 1996. New Copy 4CD ... $53.99 59.99
Improvised brilliance from the legendary Keith Jarrett – a wonderful 4CD set that features unissued material from an Italian tour in the mid 90s – a time when Jarrett wasn't performing nearly as much in this format as he was in the 70s! The approach is similar to those famous early albums of improvised piano on ECM, but the style is often quite different – as Keith has an almost more sensitive, up-close quality to his piano work here – a quality that might reflect some of the smaller venues in the performance, but also reflects some of the more introspective ideas that Jarrett wasn't always bringing to his more-documented trio material of the time. The 4CD set is maybe a more personal counterpart to the stretched out solo piano of the Sun Bear set – and each disc features a full evening's performance – from the cities of Modena, Ferrara, Torino, and Genova in October of 1996.

Keith JarrettSolo Concerts – Bremen Lausanne ... LP
ECM, 1973. Near Mint- 3LP Box + Booklet ... $19.99
One of Jarrett's numerous solo piano recordings for ECM, and one that actually predates the watershed Koln Concert set. Ultimately very much in the same vein as that more well known recording, these 3 albums worth of material find Jarrett exploring the piano in a contemplative, lyrical, but still very free way, etching out his own little sub genre of music that would become hugely influential, for good or bad! Like the other live piano solo recordings, each piece is simply named by location, and divided into parts, like "Ia" and "IIb". LP, Vinyl record album

Keith JarrettSomewhere Before ... CD
Vortex (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... $14.99
A wonderful illustration of the inherent sense of beauty in Keith Jarrett's early work – an approach to piano that was simple, straightforward, and marked by a ringing sense of tone that's evident in the very first note of the set! Jarrett here isn't trying to break any rules in jazz piano, nor is he trying to go out of his way to make the world known of his presence – and instead, he's got a simple, subtle approach to the keys that's filled with tenderness and gentle tones – but not in a way that's hokey or overly sentimental. There's certainly echoes here of 60s work by Steve Kuhn, and of earlier records by Vince Guaraldi – but Jarrett also hints at a bold power underneath that seems likely to break out at every turn. The album's a live recording, with Charlie Haden on bass and Paul Motian on drums – and titles include "A Moment For Tears", "Pout's Over", "My Back Pages", "Pretty Ballad", "Moving Soon", "Old Rag", and "Dedicated To You".

Not just Miles Davis live at Newport – but Miles at Newport over the course of 20 years, in the space of eight different live performances – almost all of which are previously unreleased! Apart from the 1958 and 1969 Newport material here, most of the 4CD set features all-new, all-great vintage Miles material – with Newport performances from 1955, 1958, 1966, 1967, 1969, 1971, 1973, and 1975 – the last three of which are Newport festivals in Europe and New York. And these aren't just random tracks, but full sets, too – even with some announcements at the start or end – and players include Gerry Mulligan and Zoot Sims for the 1955 concert; John Coltrane, Cannonball Adderley, and Bill Evans in 1958; Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Ron Carter, and Tony Williams for 1966 and 1967; Jack DeJohnette, Dave Holland, and Chick Corea in 1969; a big electric group with Keith Jarrett, Gary Bartz, Michel Henderson, and Mtume in 1971; and Pete Cosey, Davie Liebman, Reggie Lucas, and Mtume for the 1973 and 1975 shows.

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".

Pentti Lahti/Olli Ahvenlahti & Eero OjanenJazz Liisa 11 ... LP
Svart (Finland), 1974. New Copy ... $19.99
Some of the deepest work so far on this excellent series of Finnish jazz from the 70s – a set that begins with some strong work from saxophonist Pentti Lahti – who works here with a cool combo that's heavy on Fender Rhodes and piano from Olli Ahvenlahti, whose way of shaping the tunes really brings in a lot of soul! Lahti blows tenor, soprano, and baritone sax – one on each of the album's three tracks – and the group also featuers Mircea Stan on trombone, Ikka Willman on bass, and Tapani Nappi Ikonen on drums. The set begins with a sweet Fender Rhodes take on Curtis Fuller's "12 Inch", and ends with a funky keyboard original, "Valahia" – which is pure CTI. In between is a great mellow acoustic take on "A Nightingale Sang In Berkeley Square", which lets you here Lahti soloing openly on baritone. The second half of the set is just piano – haunting acoustic duets between Olli Ahvenlahti and Eero Ojanen – warm, open, and really beautifully flowing! The duo take on Keith Jarrett's "In Your Quiet Place", and also do an encore of that track – and also play the original "Aino". LP, Vinyl record album

A great 60s moment not just for reedman Charles Lloyd, but also for pianist Keith Jarrett – who was a key part of Charles' group for a few years at the time – and who really opens up on this classic set! Tracks are long and very open – reaching in a spiritual sort of way with definite Coltrane overtones, yet also showing that more complexly rhythmic mode that made Lloyd a standout in previous groups before he was a leader – a quality that's really augmented by the presence of Jack DeJohnette on drums! Lloyd plays both tenor and flute – and Jarrett switches to soprano sax on one number! Titles include"Journey Within", "Love No 3", "Memphis Green" and "Lonesome Child". CD

Tracks are long and very open – reaching in a spiritual sort of way with definite Coltrane overtones, yet also showing that more complexly rhythmic mode that made Lloyd a standout in previous groups before he was a leader – a quality that's really augmented by the presence of Jack DeJohnette on drums!

In Europe features overseas excursions from the Charles Lloyd Quartet – a group who were already breaking down plenty of boundaries at home in the US! The lineup is a bit different than some of the other Lloyd sessions of the time, in that Cecil McBee is in the group on bass – adding in some wonderfully spiritual tones to a lineup that features Charles on tenor and flute, Keith Jarrett on piano, and Jack DeJohnette on drums – playing with those inventive rhythms that made his work a perfect fit for Lloyd's lines on the tenor! Titles include "Tagore", "Karma", "Little Anahid's Day", "Manhattan Carousel", "European Fantasy", and "Hej Da!". CD

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

Hatology (Switzerland), 2017. New Copy ... $16.99 19.99
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

Really magical work from a young Denny Zeitlin – one of a few key players in the second wave of jazz piano talent in the 60s – post-Bill Evans, and equally important as artists like Steve Kuhn or Keith Jarrett! Zeitlin's got the inventive sensibilities of both of those players at their start – a new way of phrasing notes, finding fresh tones, and working with a looser approach to rhythm – handled here by the excellent duo of Cecil McBee on bass and Freddy Waits on drums! Zeitlin's also a hell of a writer, too – most tunes here are originals – and titles include "Stonehenge", "Cathexis", "I Thou", "Blue Phoenix", and "Nica's Tempo". It's no surprise that Zeitlin's continued to make compelling music all these many decades later – but he was already wonderful at the start! LP, Vinyl record album

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

Posi tone, 2017. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

Donal Leace was one of a few hip soul acts that Roberta Flack brought to Atlantic during her strongest period with the label – and he's a soulful folk singer whose work reminds us of certain folksy moments on Flack's first few albums. There's less of a Terry Callier sound than a Tim Hardin one – and the backing is filled with jazzy inflections laid down by players like Keith Jarrett, David Spinozza, Ray Lucas, Bernard Purdie, and Ron Carter. Flack produced – and again, you can definitely hear her love of folk music on the LP. Titles include "Andrea", "Midnight Cowboy", "Shimaree", "Sad Lisa", "What Does It Take", and "Today Won't Come Again". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Denny ZeitlinShining Hour – Live At The Trident ... LP
Columbia, 1965. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An excellent live outing from pianist Denny Zeitlin – recorded at the height of his early powers! The session's got a fresly new conception to piano-based jazz – a style that resonates nicely with the best 60s work of Steve Kuhn or Keith Jarrett, sharing some of the tenderness of the former and the sense of color of the latter. Rhythm is from the team of Charlie Haden on bass and Jerry Granelli on drums – and Haden's bass is an especially powerful force in the set, pushing out the tunes with a flowing quality that pulsates nicely even on the more gentle numbers. Titles include "Lonely Woman", "Where Does It Lead", "My Shining Hour", "Spur Of The Moment", and "Carole's Waltz". LP, Vinyl record album
(360 Sound stereo pressing.)

✨✧ Pentti Lahti/Olli Ahvenlahti & Eero Ojanen/MirceaJazz Liisa 11 & 12 ... CD
Svart (Finland), 1974. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A huge amount of unreleased tracks from the Finnish scene of the 70s! Jazz Liisa 11 features some of the deepest work so far on this excellent series of Finnish jazz from the 70s – a set that begins with some strong work from saxophonist Pentti Lahti – who works here with a cool combo that's heavy on Fender Rhodes and piano from Olli Ahvenlahti, whose way of shaping the tunes really brings in a lot of soul! Lahti blows tenor, soprano, and baritone sax – one on each of the album's three tracks – and the group also featuers Mircea Stan on trombone, Ikka Willman on bass, and Tapani Nappi Ikonen on drums. The set begins with a sweet Fender Rhodes take on Curtis Fuller's "12 Inch", and ends with a funky keyboard original, "Valahia" – which is pure CTI. In between is a great mellow acoustic take on "A Nightingale Sang In Berkeley Square", which lets you here Lahti soloing openly on baritone. The second half of the set is just piano – haunting acoustic duets between Olli Ahvenlahti and Eero Ojanen – warm, open, and really beautifully flowing! The duo take on Keith Jarrett's "In Your Quiet Place", and also do an encore of that track – and also play the original "Aino". Jazz Liisa 12 is a great double-header of unreleased jazz from Finland! Side one features trombonist Mircea Stan – a player we admit that we don't know much at all, but who's beautifully suited for a warm fusion groove – in a way that few of his contemporaries on his instrument can match! Mircea blows here with Fender Rhodes and acoustic piano from Olli Ahvenlahti – in a style that's like Olli's own wonderful work – and his trombone lines have a way of slow-shaping over the electricity that's maybe a bit like the wonderful Japanese trombonist Shigeharu Mukai – whose records from the mid 70s feel a lot like the work here. The group also has excellent flute, alto, and soprano sax from Pentti Lahti – whose music is always a treat, and whose sharper sound offsets the trombone nicely. Pekka Sarmanto plays bass and Tapani Nappi Ikonen is on drums – and titles include "Ornament", "Coming Home", and "Something". The second half of the set features two of the same key players – Stan and Ahvenlahti – working in a group led by Jukka Rudohomaki, who plays a Putney synth, with lots of great analogue electronic elements! Ahvenlahti's also on mini-moog – which makes for a very moogy sound overall, which turns out to be a great match for Stan's trombone phrasing too – on the long title "Talviunesta Heraaminen". CD

✨✧ Howard RileyConstant Change 1976 to 2016 (5CD set) ... CD
No Business (Lithuania), 1976/1980/Mid 80s/2016. New Copy 5 CDs ... Out Of Stock
The title's a great one for this overstuffed set of work by Howard Riley – not because the pianist is always changing the style of his music, but because in a single performance, his space on the keys is constantly shifting – never at rest, and always open into boundless territory of exploration – at a level that continues to make Riley one of the most impressive piano talents of his generation! At some level, Howard has the sense of freedom that you'd find in the music of Cecil Taylor – but he also has a commitment to tunefulness and inherent structure that's also quite different – almost in a way that could make Riley a sort of more avant Keith Jarrett, when Jarrett's in his solo improvising mode – but with sounds, textures, and colors that go far beyond any sort of simplistic label. This package features some of the most beautiful work we've heard from Riley in one place – almost all of it previously unreleased, save for some 80s tracks that only ever saw issue on cassette – and the 5CD package features six titles recorded in Paris in 1976, three recorded in Hungary in 1980, thirteen more recorded in the Porcupine Studios in London – in 1983, 1985, and 1987 – and three different variations on "Mutability" – each around the space of an hour, recorded in 2014, 2015, and 2016.
