I’ve been following the Musicophile blog almost since my first post in late 2015. And he was one of the first to come over here and comment on my first jazz posts way back when. His blog is actually called “musicophilesblog – From Keith Jarrett to Johannes Brahms.”
He writes largely about classical music and jazz but has enough affection for rock to visit over here once in a while. The only thing I would add to what Chris said below is that Jarrett, for all his other gifts, has a great rhythmic feel and would make a hell of a boogie-woogie blues player. Alas, his career has been felled by a couple of strokes and it’s not likely he’ll play again.
Here’s some of what Musicophile said about this album:
Keith Jarrett has recorded A LOT of solo concerts. Attending one of the last of them in 2015 actually triggered me to start this blog.
I’ve reviewed a number of them here already, and still have the ambition at some point to review them all. You’ll find the links to my reviews of his concerts in Budapest, Munich, Paris, Modena/Ferrara/Torino/Genova, Bregenz/München, Milan, and Bremen/Lausanne, which I mentioned in my 25 Essential Jazz albums. And yes, there’s obviously, the Köln Concert, the best-selling solo Jazz album in Jazz history.
None of these concerts is ever not worth exploring, but some are better than others.
You see the rest here. Then come back and listen to the album
