Keith Jarrett's work in the 70s, especially with the European quartet on ECM, have been my favorite jazz records for a long time. I was a bit disappointed when he entered his "Standards" period, which seemed to me (without listening to it much) a retreat from his original inspiration into something more conventional. However, having decided that i owed it closer attention, i ordered this DVD simply because it offers more music for the buck than any of the CDs i considered at the time: two complete concerts recorded in '85 and '86, including 22 pieces (only 3 written by Jarrett). What surprised me was the intensity of the music-making here, especially on Jarrett's part, though Peacock and DeJohnette are obviously right there with him and make their own major contributions. The sound is impeccable, as you would expect from ECM, and so are the visuals, with no obtrusive camera tricks. Of course the music doesn't need them -- the unexpected turns of improvisation here make you forget that they are built around well-worn tunes, and the range of expression is remarkable. But it definitely adds something to watch Jarrett perform, removing all doubt that he is as totally possessed by his glorious musical demons as ever. Peacock is fun to watch too, looking more composed but certainly enjoying what the trio are doing together.

I can't list favorites or go into more detail here because i've only played it twice, but i can certainly recommend it to anyone with even a passing interest in Keith Jarrett's music of the 80s and 90s.

Just buy it. That's all I can say. Such a beautiful couple of shows that will blow your socks off. It is obvious these guys love to play together. Really nice stuff here, well-worth a look or three. Highly recommended, as three superb musicians delight us with their music. Not to be missed!

This two-disc set is for you if you like Jarrett's trio offerings. I believe disc 1 was originally published back in 1976 and has been out of print or pricey and hard to find since that time. However, this two disc set includes this original performance plus an additional full concert done at a later date (the second disc is not just a bunch of out-takes). Both discs appear to have been recorded in the same concert hall--Tokyo I think.

I will not get into all the justly-deserved praise given this trio; you can read that from previous reviews. I'll just say that this music is superb!

So then why am I writing this review? Three reasons: (1) sound quality, (2) video quality, and, (3) general production quality.

(1) Sound quality is fantastic. ECM did their usual great job of miking everyone perfectly. All players seem to have their own space audio-wise and yet the whole thing comes together with a "you are there" quality. The instruments are in complete sonic balance. That typically beautiful Jarrett piano is there with bells on! I love that treble of the big Steinway. On my 7.1 system I feel like I'm in the front row.

(2) The video quality is a bit grainy and cloudy--the second disc is a bit clearer than the first disc. Not a big thing, but it still seems like the video rendering could have been a bit clearer. Possibly the darken concert hall is to blame for this. I add that this grainy view tends to appear only on full stage screen shots of the trio. Lighting is good and the grain sort of disappears in close-ups of the players.

(3) General production is great. Video shots of each player are abundant as are overviews of the full trio spread out on the stage. You get numerous shots of Jarrett's hands, DeJonnett's (huge) drum kit, and Peacock's finger board.

This video seems to enhance the subtle swing inherent in the trio's CD playing. The video + audio cues come together in a synergistic manner to add something to the swing that seems to be absent in the trio's CD playing. I love it when each of the players smiles and nods at the other based on something just played. All these fine points are captured here.

These discs deserve to be played on a good TV and audio system and will bring out the best of a high-end rig. And you will probably listen to them numerous times and then some. Just add a bottle of wine and sit back. You are at the Jarrett Superbowl in your own home! We have all seen poorly-produced music DVD performances that were never intended to be played on DVD due to poor sound, poor video, etc. This Jarrett set is not one of these; it's done right and can be a reference DVD if you want to show off your system to neighbors.

Sidebar: Two-channel stereo vs 7.1 surround? I've heard many CDs in 5.1 and in 7.1 surround. The surround effect simply didn't come off in my opinion relative to a good two-channel presentation. Perhaps it was the artificial mixing of an original stereo recording to make it into a 5.1 or 7.1 surround presentation. Surprisingly this Jarrett DVD collection does not suffer from any type of manipulated sound engineering, probably because there is no need to tweak things. I do not know if this was originally a stereo recording or how much mixing went on post-concert. I just know that my 7.1 multi-channel presentation gives a truly comfortable and balanced rendering which is probably due to my setting the system to the multi-channel setting. The multi-channel on my system sucks for such DVDs as Avatar and the like where specific sounds are targeted for specific speakers.

A highly-recommended two + hours of music.

You can hear the years of playing together Keith, Jack and Gary have, then playing Standards they just flow through the tunes.
