In the second part of this week's show we continue exploring the compositional genius of Keith Jarrett on the occasion of his 76th birthday, focusing on renditions of his tunes by other musicians. It is one of the ways we can celebrate the lasting contributions Keith Jarrett has made to the music world at a time where his health prevents him from playing the piano.

Happy listening!
