Ralph Towner: My Foolish Heart

Read "My Foolish Heart" reviewed by Nenad Georgievski

There is no lack of poise in guitarist Ralph Towner's music. As the principle writer and guitarist for the band Oregon, a group which since 1970 has blended jazz, world music, and classical elements together, he has garnered a well-deserved reputation as one of the most virtuosic guitar players ever. For years, Towner has been consistently ...

Ralph Towner: My Foolish Heart

Read "My Foolish Heart" reviewed by Geno Thackara

Ralph Towner has occasionally said that he considers himself less a musician than a sort of audio novelist. An album or concert might not tell a single strict narrative, exactly, but dynamic flow is central to his compositions as much as his marvelously expressive fretting and plucking. Unsurprisingly from a player so known for picturesque sensibility ...

Ralph Towner: My Foolish Heart

Read "My Foolish Heart" reviewed by Henning Bolte

If you are lucky enough to experience this guitarist live, the astonishment about the abundance and the richness of colors of his sound on the acoustic instrument should be extraordinary and should let you forget within minutes the bravura of electrified sound. Towner's wealthy guitar playing has something rather complete in itself. For him the solo ...

Keith Jarrett / Gary Peacock / Jack DeJohnette: My Foolish Heart

Read "My Foolish Heart" reviewed by Nenad Georgievski

There's not a whole lot 63 year-old jazz legend Keith Jarrett hasn't achieved in his illustrious forty year career as a recording and performing artist. He has recorded more than fifty albums in various formats, and each project has a special significance for his fans. The Keith Jarrett Trio has come a long way from its ...

Keith Jarrett / Gary Peacock / Jack DeJohnette: My Foolish Heart

Read "My Foolish Heart" reviewed by Joel Roberts

Listeners have come to expect several things from the trio of Keith Jarrett, Gary Peacock and Jack DeJohnette in the 25 years that the group's been engaged in its extended modernist exploration of the Great American Songbook: remarkable musicianship, extreme seriousness and a fairly predictable repertoire.

That's what makes the trio's 18th release on ...

Keith Jarrett - Gary Peacock - Jack DeJohnette: My Foolish Heart

Read "My Foolish Heart" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Quella del 22 luglio 2001 a Montreux è stata una serata speciale per il trio di Keith Jarrett, Gary Peacock e Jack DeJohnette. Una di quelle in cui la musica sembra fluire magicamente, condotta a livelli qualitativi altissimi anche per gli standard già elevati dei tre musicisti. Secondo le parole dello stesso Jarrett, nessun altro singolo concerto del ...

Keith Jarrett / Gary Peacock / Jack DeJohnette: My Foolish Heart

Read "My Foolish Heart" reviewed by Budd Kopman

Pianist Keith Jarrett's career practically invites criticism or, at the very least, intense comment. His outspokenness, his utter seriousness of intent and the resulting love-hate relationship with the audience, even his vocalisms, evoke strong responses, both pro and con, from listeners.

As the years have gone by, expectations have continued to rise, almost ...

Keith Jarrett / Gary Peacock / Jack DeJohnette: My Foolish Heart

Read "My Foolish Heart" reviewed by Martin Gladu

When the Voice speaks, listen to the Voice. Whether it is from a minaret or, as in Nipper's case, an oversized cornet, when the Voice speaks one pauses and listens. And when Keith Jarrett hears that Voice and starts playing, one should respectfully listen (no coughing please), because from wherever the Voice originates, it sure begets ...

Keith Jarrett/Gary Peacock/Jack DeJohnette: My Foolish Heart

Read "My Foolish Heart" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Pianist Keith Jarrett's best work is with his Standards Trio, with bassist Gary Peacock and drummer Jack DeJohnette--though it probably wouldn't be hard to get an argument favoring his solo concert discs. And his best Standards Trio disc may be My Foolish Heart, though an argument for any of the trio efforts released in the new ...
