Keith Jarrett and Charlie HadenJuly 27, 2010 / No Comments
Virtuoso pianist Keith Jarrett and bassist Charlie Haden last recorded together some 30 years ago, but their new release sounds as if they’ve been playing together forever. Jasmine, a duo take on standard ballads, was recorded in Jarrett’s New Jersey-based home studio on an old Steinway that he uses mostly for practice.Though each of the eight tunes have been interpreted a million times, Haden and Jarrett bring something invigorating to their rendering of the music. The sound is clean and perfect for the sparseness of instrumentation and what’s heard is a beautiful musical conversation between two old friends and masters of their respective crafts.
