I am sure most of you know by now that Keith Jarrett suffered a series of strokes over the last two years and essentially can no longer play the piano. It appears his performing days are over. This is a good time to listen and reflect upon his massive body of work and his overall genius. Peace and prayers.

Bookmark and Share 2020 can’t end fast enough for me. Another blow to Jazz, besides all that have passed this year. I am so glad that I got to see him many times starting in the 1980’s when I heard him playing solo at The Auditorium Theatre in Chicago. This was when he did his marathon improvisation pieces (30 minute long). Then starting back in 2008, when I moved back to Chicago I saw him several times with his trio and solo. I enjoyed every show that I saw and he loved playing in Chicago because the audiences were well behaved. He has a huge discography to explore and my collection of his CD’s will keep the memories alive. It seems like every year he pulls a new live recording out of the archives. Check out A Multitude Of Angels box set, I think it is one of his best.
