Half Notes: Keith Jarrett – My Foolish Heart: Live at Montreux (2007)

I think there’s an annual requirement that Keith Jarrett must issue some kind of musical good. Going into this release, there had only been a handful of years in his career that have not resulted in some kind of album under his name — 1969, 1970, 1978, 1982, 1984, 1997, and 2002. The kicker is that in the many years he did release music, he often released multiple titles. That’s just remarkable. Equally remarkable is that My Foolish Heart: Live at Montreux marked the 25th anniversary of the trio featured here: Pianist Jarrett, with bassist Gary Peacock and drummer Jack DeJohnette. This two-disc set covers the jazz standards the group is known for — songs you probably know but, as always, given a fresh and probably greatly extended reading by this powerful trio.
