Keith Jarrett Trio - After The Fall

Brilliant Conversations: “After the Fall”, Keith Jarrett Trio (ECM, 2018)

The headline above for the latest release from the “Standards Trio”—Keith Jarrett (piano), Gary Peacock (double bass) and Jack DeJohnette (drums)—is worthy of a nod to the title of the classic 1957 album by Thelonious Monk, Brilliant Corners. There is a palpable reverence and the highest level of esteem offered by the audience for a concert by this group. You know that you are about to listen to an arc of extraordinary musical conversations among the artists during the performance. Their new double CD After The Fall, from an “experimental” (according to Jarrett) performance in Newark, NJ, on November 14, 1998, is a ‘must buy’ upon its release on March 2, 2018.

The insightful liner notes provided by Jarrett have him characterizing the concert as a “scary experiment,” since it came at the end of a period where he was suffering from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. From the Fall of 1996 to late 1998, he was unable to play the piano. Toward the end of that period, he decided to try playing with the trio in the studio of his house in New Jersey, essentially rehearsing for the first time ever with Peacock and DeJohnette. Things didn’t go particularly well but he felt he had no other option than to attempt a concert near his home, leading to the Newark engagement. Jarrett notes that after Newark it was still a gradual process of recovery over the next year, with his “energy levels flowing back and forth like the tides.” Speaking about this After The Fall release, Jarrett said, “I was amazed to hear how well the music worked. For me, it’s not only an historical document, but a truly great concert.”
