passion #77: keith jarret

Keith Jarret is known for being difficult. he abhors any sort of noise during his performances -he once walked out of a show in Paris because someone in the crowd would not stop coughing. my friend and Jazz Advisor the Good Doctor introduced me to Jarret and he's quickly becoming one of my favorite artists.

what is life but passion? Jarret would know. peep the clip below taken from a show in Italy the year before I was born.

Jarret is one crazy cat for sure. But almost too technical and classical for my tastes. If you have not already, check out Ahmad Jamal (http://youtube.com/watch?v=_Qc3VaXtW5M&feature=related)
and of course Bill Evans.
