Synopsis

Amazon.com
The bassist calls on pianist Keith Jarrett and drummer Jack DeJohnette for his greatest album as leader. It is the same lineup as the obviously more-vaunted Jarrett standards trio, and this recording lacks nothing of the Jarrett-led albums. It works, not due to the great pianist's presence alone, but because Peacock is a strong writer of atmospheric pieces that seem to hark to natural forces--the wind and the rain. ECM has characteristically opted for a lush sound. Peacock's enveloping bass sound sings in a yearning, elevated voice. He has drawn from the direct lyricism of Bill Evans. His own sound and compositions are, however, even more introspect and otherworldly, thanks in part to Peacock's judicious use of elements from the avant-garde, in which he often worked. --Peter Monaghan

What's up w/ Jarrett

(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is a great album of atmospheric, moody music. Gary's bass sounds great and he plays well throughout. Jack accents the mood and only really opens up on the last two tracks. I would consider this one of my all time favorites if not for one thing: Keith Jarrett moaning and whining. I can't understand it. His playing is so beautiful and lyrical, all overlaped w/ these strange and annoying noises. I know it is an expression of emotion while playing, but I find it highly destracting. This album, though, is good enough to look past it. Barely."

"I agree with other reviewers regarding Jarrett. His noises are irritating and distracting not unlike in his own 1970s live solo effort, "Koln Concert". The sound engineers at ECM need to seriously considering editing these grunts and groans when remastering these discs."
Superb Musicianship Ruined

"The musicians performing here are among the best jazz/classical musicians in the world. The performance is world class as you would expect. I love Peacock's moody compositions on this CD rather than the standards this group usually performs. However, all the beauty of this fine jazz is ruined by Jarrett's damn squealing and squawking. On this CD he's particularly obnoxious which is a shame since the material and performance is among the best this group has ever done. It's gotten to the point where I now avoid buying any music with Jarrett. Someone should clue Jarret in.......he's NOT being cute."
