Before Xmas you really can enjoy highest quality Jazz.
Remember the Keith Jarrett concert in Munich, 3 years ago. Two days before just in front of Keith Jarrets hotel in Nizza we were faced with the cruel massacre by a terrorist.
We expected a cancellation of the concert but Keith played the evening without mentioning it. I was there and he played a fantastic evening, you do not hear his words on the record. A great solo piano recording.
Avishar Cohen surprised us with a wonderful Trio-impression. He signed the cover I recently got in Berlin. I loved his appearance in Munich, see my writings.
E.S.T. with the unforgotten Esbjörn Svensson launched a Live Recording. What shall I say? Since I have seen them on the stage at Circus Crone in the beginnings of the new century I am one of their core fans.
Ahmad Jamal is the only one I have not seen personally and I need doing this. The 89 years old French man plays in his first solo-album some of the songs of his great album Marseille. You will love these intime Ballads and will end up with watery eyes…
