Although the Spike Lee film Mo' Better Blues had a somewhat absurd ending, its depiction of the jazz life had its accurate moments and the music was generally quite rewarding. A few of the selections on this soundtrack CD are throwaways or filler, but there is also some fine playing by a modern hard bop quintet consisting of trumpeter Terence Blanchard, Branford Marsalis on tenor and soprano, pianist Kenny Kirkland, bassist Robert Hurst, and drummer Jeff "Tain" Watts. It's sure to be a collector's item someday.

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.
