"...which is the best song on this album and the reason I own it. This is back when Keith Jarrett still had his feet on the ground, so to speak, before the whole solo concert thing. "You Know, You Know" has some of the most melodic drumming you'll ever hear, and it has a nice, lazy, funky feel to it. The interaction between Jarrett and DeJohnette is almost telepathic as they continually finish each other's phrases. The rhythmic feel these guys have is so merciless! The rest of the album is kind of self-indulgent, all the wood flute and hand-drum stuff doesn't really work, and I'm even ambivalent about the acoustic piano playing. It's the electric piano work that I like the best, so I guess that would put me on Mr. Jarrett's Big List of Philistines. Not an essential album, but if you're inclined to spring for an entire CD to get one particular tune, then you'll be rewarded."
