Another excellent presentation by The Keith Jarrett Trio

"If you enjoyed the "Live at the Open Theater East" DVD, I think you'll also like this one very much. I found the music here to be a little more introspective, and full of lyricism and beautiful melodies. I liked everything, but my favorites are "Never Let Me Go", a wonderful version of "Summer Night", then a fantastic "Autumn Leaves" with a brief final improvisation based on "Speak Low", "Last Night When We Were Young" which evolves into "Caribbean Sky", and "My Funny Valentine" with a final part based on "A Song". The video images are very good and capture interesting expressions and attitudes from the artists, the sound track is also excellent, but not as relevant as in the above mentioned "Live at..." DVD, which was outstanding. In this new DVD the sound mix is more conventional, the drums are behind the other two instruments, and not on a same level as in the previous one. The sound of the piano is not as good here, perhaps due to the number and quality of the microphones used, perhaps in part due to the instrument itself. Considering the small number of good Jazz DVDs available so far, I don't hesitate to recommend this one."
Keith Jarrett Trio Tokyo Live '96

"Are you browsing around to try to find the best DVD available for Keith Jarrett Trio as you are his long time audio-CD listener? Well, if you don't trust reviews here, at least you can trust Manfred Eicher - for this DVD is so far the only one I got that is also available as an ECM record.

If you like that CD, Tokyo Live '96, you should definitely get this DVD as it offers the whole concerts. Some of the tunes (such as Tonk, and a great prelude of All the Things that You Are) are as fine as those got selected on the album. Moreover, I am sure that the DVD will take you deeper into that CD with the visual images of communication between the players. A touching performance."
A fine performance

"Have you heard a bass player make his instrument sing before? Do you think Mona Lisa is a pretty corny tune as I did before listening to this CD? Keith's well known utterances are not distracting, maybe because we have the visual aspect now. The trio's passion for the music is very evident here. Is it just me or does Gary Peacock appear to be in tears at the end of Mona Lisa (?)...but with good reason.
A nice contrast of uptempo bebop and great ballads, Never Let Me Go, for example. Have you ever found yourself lost in a song then coming back and asking 'are they in the bridge or where', but then you don't really care, the music floats and finds a life on its own... well this will happen when you listen to this great performance."
Will become one of the classic filmed jazz performances

"Everything about this DVD is well above average - the players , the songs chosen , camerawork and the direction which is sensitive to the music .

It is a DVD that can either be watched or played with your TV switched off .

I wholeheartedly recommend it to fans of trio jazz or jazz in general .
Players of any of the three instruments played here will be able to use it on an instructional basis also . Teachers could also use it as a reference for young jazz players as an example of superior playing and more importantly , musical communication .

I will enjoy it for years to come and hope others do the same .
