Celebrating 20 years of his trio’s life as a working band, Keith Jarrett issues a sparkling and trimphant performance from last year’s rainswept Antibes Festival, in which standards are re-investigated from a new perspective. Buoyant, exhilarating performances from all three players, “swinging in the rain”, as Jarrett says in his liner notes.
This outstanding album completes the rehabilitation of Jarrett the piano master. The Melody At Night showed us that the melodic craftsman was still at large. Whisper Not reminded us of the fluency that he brought to bebop but this superb release presents his current concert persona, in the presence of his (almost) life long partners and playing with exhilarating freedom. - Barry McRae, Jazz Journal International
