Keith Jarrett: Tokyo '96
I only found one track really galvanizing, though. The trio's playing on "I'll remember April" is spectacular, with DeJohnette cooking up a spectacular near-samba under Jarrett's ringing gospel chords. A whole concert of such excitement would restore the Standards Trio to an eminence in this reviewer's humble opinion which it enjoys among the more committed members of its audience. There's nothing to complain about in any of the date, to be sure.
Knowledgeable fans will be interested to learn that Jarrett's invariable vocalizations are here only intermittent and not generally obtrusive. For the rest, let it be said that the trio maintains its reputation as a consistently satisfying performing group.
