Sheer genius....

"To listen to this album with good headphones on is an obscenely ecstatic experience. I won't call it a "religious" experience, because Jarrett is so clearly human, so full of stormy emotions and dark moods. He is not some superior being removed from the travails of human experience.But his musical genius does seem God-like and huge and all-encompassing. I mean, I don't even know what you would call this music he creates. It's like Bach and Beethoven filtered through the prism of Thelonius Monk and Jellyroll Morton and then anointed with Shostakovitch and Rachmaninov. And even that doesn't begin to explain it. I have listened to a LOT of music in my lifetime, and what Keith Jarrett produces on this album surpasses my wildest dreams. Just buy this, put some headphones on, and prepare to be washed away in a wave of incomparable beauty."
Jarrett's best improvised melodies

"After spending 100s of hours listening to Jarrett's cd's, probably more than 50, i can name myself a very good Jarrett's reviewer. Please believe me this is Jarrett at his best. Recorded live in Tokyo this CD contains some of the best pieces he ever made. The pieces are not lengthy, appr. 5-7mins and they never become boring or so. All of them can be seen as small soundtracks of little stories of our lives. Definetly my favourite Jarrett's piece ever is "Americana", the most fascinating story he ever told us with his piano. "Think of your ears as eyes" as he once said and enjoy this cd"
Dark, beautiful, and underrated

"this music is incredible. KJ didnt hold anything back when playing this (as if he ever did). these are unusually short for keith, but not lacking in quality at all. while this may not be one of keith's more celebrated works, it is excellent, and, keith himself included two tracks from this cd on his recent release of selected recordings (as ECM recently did with many of their artists). my favorite track on the cd, which also happens to be one of the ones that keith selected for the recent ECM release, is 'Americana'. this song is absolutely beautiful and im sure i've listened to it hundreds of times. i know that i've left that song alone on repeat both while in bed and while on the comp. late at night. this was some of the first KJ i ever heard on his own (i had heard him w/ miles before, but thats very different). i highly recommend this cd to anyone interested in great dark improvised piano. another great example of keith's genius and ability to utilize his masterful technique when he chooses, but, more importantly, to restrain his use and speak with fewer notes when he so chooses also. keith is a master of the keys, but doesnt use this ability for show; he is one of the most tasteful pianists to ever live and knows how to use understatement"
