Keith Jarrett
Paris/London Testament
(ECM Records)

Is it possible to tire of Keith Jarrett’s incredible pianissimo? Not likely. Paris/London Testament is a 3-disc documentation of his virtuosity and genius as an improvisational composer, bringing no pre-arranged music, while exploring, and finding, beautiful, new musical ideas in front of a live audience. The Paris concert was recorded at the Salle Playel on November 26, 2008, while the London concert recorded a few days later on December 1 at Royal Festival Hall marked Jarrett’s return to London after an absence of many years. The suite of performances are truly a testament to the continuing brilliance of an incredible musical artist.
