Keith Jarrett, Charlie Haden

Jarrett and Haden back together again! Thirty three years after the  break-up of Keith Jarrett’s great ‘American quartet’ , the pianist and  bassist Charlie Haden reunited for an album of standards, played with  deep feeling. The programme on “Jasmine”  includes such classic songs as  “Body and Soul”, “For All We Know” , “Where Can I Go Without You”,  “Don’t Ever Leave Me” and more. Intimate, spontaneous and warm, the  album, recorded at Jarrett’s home, has affinities, in its unaffected  directness, with Keith’s “The Melody At Night With You”.  Jarrett and  Haden play the music and nothing but the music – as only they can. As  Keith Jarrett says in his liner notes: “This is spontaneous music made  on the spot without any preparation save our dedication throughout our  lives that we won’t accept a substitute... These are great love songs  played by players who are trying, mostly, to keep the message intact.”
