The Sun Shines Majestically
Mr. Richard D. Coreno | Berea, Ohio USA | 03/22/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"More than 30 years ago, a massive 10-LP set was released on ECM that chronicled five improvisational piano concerts Keith Jarrett performed in November 1976 in Japan.

And the 397 minutes of brilliance was oftentimes overshadowed by critics who took aim at the package and not what was inside; essentially dismissing the music due to the volume of vinyl. Now "cut" down to six CD's - each of the five concerts on a CD, with the sixth being the encores - it remains an artistic masterpiece that has not lost its power or majesty over the many years.

Rather than being an exercise in self-indulgence, Jarrett is demonstrating how moods and textures are honest emotions on a concert stage when a performer allows the audience peek into his soul."

"Not to be over dramatic here, but I really wasn't expecting this to hit me the way it did. As someone who has listened to thousands of recordings over the years, it takes a lot to "grab" me, as it were. Well this resonated with me instantly and that's really all I can say about it - if you "get it", you'll be absolutely floored at the way this man can express himself musically. And if you're reading this and just happen to be a musician, here's an encyclopedia of piano on 6 discs which you will definitely want to own. I wish I'd discovered this 20 years ago..."
