"Another live album from Jarrett's trio?" It's hard not to let out a little yelp as the Allentown pianist continues his apparently-infinite discographic march, aided by drummer Jack DeJohnette and bassist Gary Peacock. But after listening to the first-ever release of this concert from 14 November 1998 at Newark's New Jersey Performing Arts Center, you might start to see where producer Manfred Eicher was coming from when he decided to bring this one out. Keith Jarrett even said himself: “I was amazed to hear how well the music worked. For me, it's not only a historical document, but a truly great concert.” As ever, the three friends move quickly through a few classics from the Great American Songbook but also a few wonders by John Coltrane ( Moment’s Notice), Bud Powell (Bouncin' With Bud) and Sonny Rollins (Doxy). Above all, that evening signalled that Keith Jarrett was back in business after two years spent offstage for health reasons. From 1996 to 1998 the pianist was suffering from Chronic fatigue syndrome, or CFS, and hearing his return to form here is a real treat. Let's resist the temptation to start waxing lyrical about the fascinating complicity between Jarrett and his rhythm section, and just say that After The Fall is a record that speaks with one voice. It's an original voice, as is the re-reading of Bud Powell that opens the concert - and swing proudly reigns at its heart. This world first is also a ray of sunshine and a burst of infectious joy. As ever, DeJohnette and Peacock merrily create jaw dropping havoc on Bouncin' With Bud... In short, it would have been a crime to leave these tapes in the archive. © Max Dembo/Qobuz

Much like other musicians from the post-free scene, such as Julius Hemphill, Tim Berne is already looking to break the lines and build upon the uncomfortable. For the last thirty years, the saxophonist from New York has been one of these active troublemakers, of these jazzmen who are willing to try everything, and disrupt anything. Leader of the band Snakeoil, Berne released a fascinating fourth album for the ECM label: in Incidentals, which he recorded with Oscar Noriega on the bass clarinet, Ryan Ferreira on the electric guitar, Matt Mitchell on piano and Chas Smith on drums, he continues his beautiful destabilising campaign, while always keeping one hand on the sacred scriptures of tradition (to better shake them up?). Less and less attracted to chamber music, the Snakeoil adventure becomes all the more fascinating. And the way carefully written music blends with highly sophisticated improvisations on Incidentals is truly reaching new heights. Cerebral and demanding, here is a beautiful contemporary jazz album. © MD/Qobuz
