Todays recommendation from the unsolicited music recommendation service is, Koln Concert by Keith Jarrett.

The 1975 Koln concert recording by Keith Jarrett is one of my favorite solo piano recordings and possibly my favorite live recording as well.

Listening to the tracks individually would be a disservice to concert nd consequently I shall only mention my thoughts regarding the entire album.

The piano playing as you would expect is tuning with an exciting array of motifs, delivered with great consideration and craft. The performance is even more impressive in light of the later revelation that the piano was not the one intended for the performance and was used despite is poor state.

The recording is beautifully captured and I particularly like the rawness of the captured pedal, foot noises and the occasional vocalisations of the audience and performer.

A stunning recording of a beautiful concert and well worth a listen to it.
