Superb Outing...needs to be available again
Geoffrey P. Smith | ATLANTA, GA USA | 10/26/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Keith Jarrett, in his note about this session included in the liner, says that he hopes listeners get an appreciation of what jazz is all about on this live recording on a misty night in Allentown, PA, sometime back in the early to mid nineties. Given the large number of Jarrett trio recordings to choose from, starting in the early 80's, I find it amusing/ironic that my favorite is this VERY relaxed, spacious recording with PAUL MOTIAN on the drums, sitting in place of Jack DeJohnette on this one occasion. I never tire of this one, and the variety of material, as well as the generous performances give me no end of pleasure. Motian swings hard in an unobtrusive fashion, and Jarrett really seems to be enjoying being back on home turf. Gary Peacock is, as always, excellent. With a bewildering array of recordings to choose from, including Jarrett's own trio, I think this is an excellent place to start listening to the modern piano trio...if this is what jazz is about, count me in!"
Don't miss Flying p.1

"There are some mistakes in reviews. I think its because some peoples reviewed album "In deer head inn" instead this (which is the only album where played Motian and not DeJohnette). I want say just one thing: if you love music do not miss this one. Flying part I is maybe the best thing which this folks find in non standards ways. Pure geniality. IMHO."
Great Fun

"Just to clear this up. Paul Motian is on drums and there is no track called flying part 1. Jarretts performance here is as close as you'll ever get to hearing Jarrett playing just for fun. A bluesy version of Basin Street Blues, that is still embued with Jarretts distinctive touch and phrasing. Bye Bye Blackird is a wonderful performance, that I have listened to over and over.
This album was supposed to be a documentary recording only, and wasn't originally planned for release, but as Jarrett says in the sleeve notes "I think that you can hear on this tape, what jazz is all about".
It is a little different from the standards trio, because its Paul Motian. However Motian played with Monk, Bill Evans and a multitude of other Jazz giants, so the standard of drumming couldn't be much higher!
