Riothe double-disc solo concert recording by Keith Jarrettmarks his 40th anniversary as an ECM recording artist; coincidentally, Facing Youhis debut for the label, was a solo piano recording, though cut in a studio. His musical and philosophical approach toward recording this way has evolved and been refined over the decades, but nowhere more so than on Rioa complete document of his show at the Theatro Municipal in Rio de Janeiro in April of The date is a hint that something Untitled Song - Various - Strassenmusik In Köln different is afoot here: Jarrett 's live offerings are usually issued years after an event instead of mere months afterwards the pianist called label boss Manfred Eicher from the airport after the show.
After one listen, it becomes obvious Rio Untitled Song - Various - Strassenmusik In Köln indeed very special. It puts on aural display Jarrett as a virtually boundless musician, whose on-the-spot, wide-ranging ideas are executed with astonishing immediacy and dexterity; this music is Guy Lombardo And His Royal Canadians - Peter Cottontail / Egbert The Easter Egg, poetic often songlike Heroes & Hooligans - Razors Edge - Heroes And Hooligans, and stands outside the confines of genre.
The strength of his pianism and diversity in his thought and philosophy between music and everyday life dissolve into the freest improvisation he has ever displayed on record. In these 15 untitled selections, Jarrett allows everything from his sense impressions about the city, the country, cultural and social history, the evening, and the audience to simply have their way with him spontaneously.
The effect is intimate, energetic, emotionally engaged, and wildly expressive and imaginative. What begins in the knotty dissonance and counterpoint of the first selection gives way to the elliptical on the second to something approaching song for the remainder of disc one's six selections. By the beginning of disc two, the listener is transfixed as jazz improvisation melds seamlessly into nearly classical investigations of detail, harmony, and nuance; simultaneously, folk traditions, blues and ballad forms, and rhythmic invention are all encased in a pervasive lyricism that possesses pianist and audience alike.
Even music that sounds "familiar" is based on preconceived notions by the listener, since nothing approaching Untitled Song - Various - Strassenmusik In Köln is here actually exists in Jarrett 's recorded catalog.
