The Keith Jarrett Standards Trio gets back down to business with two CDs' worth of familiar and perhaps not-so-familiar tunes, recorded in one evening in Cologne, Germany. There is a concept this time, for all the standards carry a dedication to some jazz man or woman who performed them – and they are not predictable choices; Lee Konitz for "Lover Man," "It's Easy to Remember" for John Coltrane, "All of You" for Miles Davis, etc. Almost every number has a reflective solo piano introduction, with one of the notable exceptions being Jarrett's rolling, convoluted opening variations on "All the Things You Are" (Sonny Rollins).
"the trio swings ferociously…On tender ballads…the trio displays a delicate sense of dynamics and a high degree of interplay that borders on the telephathic…one of the most flexible, sympathetic piano trios working right now…", says The JazzTimes review and I absolutely agree with them. You just have to put it and let the trio make their magic.
