Tokyo '96


Product Description
Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Full performer name: Keith Jarrett/Gary Peacock/Jack DeJohnette.
  • Personnel: Keith Jarrett (piano); Gary Peacock (bass); Jack DeJohnette (drums).
  • Recorded live at the Orchard Hall, Tokyo, Japan on March 30, 1996.
  • TOKYO '96 was nominated for a 1999 Grammy for Best Jazz Instrumental Performance, Individual Or Group.
  • After several years together, Keith Jarrett's trio developed a kind of ESP among its members that seems to defy explanation. TOKYO '96 is one of the best ways to witness their unique kinship, other than seeing them in person. With Jack DeJohnette (drums) and Gary Peacock (bass), this group performs as if of one mind and spirit. It's often difficult to perceive the divisions between the three. It's as if one being was performing with three separate timbres simultaneously.
  • The gentle opening of "It Could Happen To You" leads us into the heart of the trio's soul as Jarrett's rubato solo transforms into a lightly swinging ensemble arrangement. In contrast, Charlie Parker's "Billie's Bounce" is off and running on all cylinders as the three toy with meter and tempo like a cat with a mouse. DeJohnette's colorful opening solo to "I'll Remember April" builds into a torrent of salsa-flavored rhythms that is quickly taken up by his bandmates for a rousing performance. Ballad lovers will especially love the trio's treatment of the classics "Never Let Me Go," "Summer Night," "Mona Lisa" and the darkly beautiful "My Funny Valentine."
