All Keith Jarrett's trio releases with drummer Jack DeJohnette and bassist Gary Peacock contain passages of luminous brilliance, and there are many here. The leader's predilection for emotional intensity predictably takes precedence over his vehicles on this occasion--all of them standards, or near-standards. At a live recording at New York's Town Hall in 1990, Jarrett first backs into Monk's "Bemsha Swing," then does exquisite service to the tune. Similar personal inflections appear in a rollicking interpretation of Dizzy Gillespie's "Woody 'n You" and a fine "Golden Earrings" and "Body and Soul." Throughout, Jarrett does things that no other pianist would. With a striking mixture of sympathy and independence, DeJohnette trundles, lags, and lurches, yet projects great solidity and dependability. Gary Peacock provides the more essential timekeeping, while providing much lift. Before ending with "Things Ain't What They Used to Be," the trio performs the only Jarrett original, the title track, and there's a great sense of liberation and flight. --Peter Monaghan

"It is useless to carve in relief the astonishing abilities of this legendary musician. Jarrett in this time makes an impressive tour de force around the most remarkable ambassadors of the jazz. Old folks is a sensitive version original of Willard Robinson. Jarrett is fine creator of atmospheres and his playing texture flows with such accurateness and brightness that you can consider be listening ten pianist in one. When musicians of the artistic stature of Jack De Johnette and Gary Peacock decided to rejoin him after Standards Vol. I and Vol. II, there was that invisible and necessary rapport.
Woody in you is an admirable exercise of virtuousness and expressive elegance. Blame me it on my youth is the most introspective piece. Surrounded of a nocturnal breath and lyrical mood, sensitivity and outstanding refinement.
Body and soul is a towering classic and Jarrett makes an extraordinary rendition of this work.
In sum one of the most interesting works of this overwhelming musician.
