As part of Keith Jarrett’s rather extensive project on the works of the Cantor of Leipzig, an interpretation on harpsichord of Livre I from J. S. Bach’s The Well-Tempered Clavier was recorded in February 1987 and released in 1988. The recording dates from the same time as this new piano version by ECM New Series recorded 7 March 1987 in Troy Savings Bank Music Hall. Of the same fluid drive in terms of the discourse, it holds an irresistible energy and is a particularly welcome interpretation of these invigorating and interpretable fugues (in C flat Major). Everything seems to dance and be in movement (D Major). The same feelings found throughout the polyphonies of pianists such as Tatiana Nikolayeya and Samuel Feinbeg or even a harpsichordist like Gustav Leonhardt are not present here. For Keith Jarrett, Bach represents the triumph of structure, and he plays Bach above all to confront one of his own artistic missions: polyphonic elaboration. The works of the Thomaskantor work as a medium for his own musical creativity as a jazzman and improvisor. The poetry and emotion are nevertheless ever-present. This is a version that will give real pleasure to all lovers of Keith Jarrett’s, allowing the comparison of two interpretations realized within two weeks of each other. Pierre-Yves Lascar/Qobuz

ECM in 10 Albums

“The most beautiful sound next to silence.” That’s been ECM’s motto for the past fifty years. Manfred Eicher, the charismatic founder of the Munich label, seems to live in a parallel universe. And jazz sounds different on planet ECM. It is often thanks to this label that artists such as Keith Jarrett, Charles Lloyd, Jan Garbarek, Chick Corea have recorded their best records. Even more so than with Blue Note or Impulse! Limiting the whole history of this extraordinary label to just 10 records would be mission impossible. So, these 10 albums will tell not “the” story but “a” story of ECM.

Nils Frahm, An Atypical Piano Master

Hailed by critics of classical music as well as amateurs of electronic experiences, Nils Frahm’s talent has managed to get everyone to agree for the last ten years. Whether he plays on a church organ or a synthesiser fitted with effect pedals, the German pianist is always looking forward, and that’s what makes him so appealing.

Keith Jarrett’s American Quartet

At the start of his busy career Keith Jarrett spent seven years carrying out all manner of crazy experiments with his American Quartet. Between the years of 1971 and 1976 the pianist, alongside Charlie Haden, Paul Motian and Dewey Redman, ran some kind of mad laboratory, in which the genres of hard bop, free-jazz, world and avant-garde would all come together. A spontaneous and interesting time worth rediscovering.
