Keith Jarrett, Gary Peacock, Jack DeJohnette Trio
Words By J-man
Pianist/composer Keith Jarrett (previously of Art Blakey & Miles Davis), double bassist (Bill Evans & Miles Davis) & drummer Jack DeJohnette (Bill Evans & Miles Davis) join forces once again for a trio that approaches the thirty year mark. Performing mainly standards, the trio has recorded several records mixing in a splash of original material. Many of the tracks focus on challenging standards and group improvisations that sound so complex that many have mistaken their free jazz as composed instrumentation.
Through the 80s into the 90s on a wave of post-bop, they were thrust to the forefront of working groups with impressive endurance. Several world tours of acoustically near-perfect halls cemented their status as truly one of the most successful straight-ahead and free jazz groups.
The trio will hit the road once again for another world tour starting in July that will extend from Europe all of the way back to the states. Check out this incredible trio and see for yourself what all of the excitement is about...
