An official word from Keith Jarrett’s manager about the concert in Bordeaux:
“The concert in Bordeaux will finally not be happening.
The administration of the new concert hall in Bordeaux (which just opened in January) informed the promoter today that they need to close the new hall for the entire summer to finish work on the hall.
The official advertising for the concert had not begun yet and the tickets had not gone sale.
So the concert at Vittoriale in Gardone Riviera on July 21 will be the last concert on the summer tour.”
A final concert has been added to the trio’s summer tour. Keith Jarrett, Gary Peacock, and Jack DeJohnette will play at the Auditorium de Bordeaux (a new hall opened in January) on July 24, 2013. Tickets should go on sale next week.
In the programme / book sold at the concert with Gary Peacock and Jack DeJohnette last night (May 6) at the Bunkamura in Tokyo, the following solo concerts were announced:
- April 30, 2014: Bunkamura, Tokyo
- May 3, 2014: Festival Hall, Osaka
- May 6, 2014: Bunkamura, Tokyo
Interestingly, it was also mentioned that the current tour (May 6-15) would be the trio’s last appearance in Japan (no specific reason was given).
Thanks to Håvard for the information.
Thanks to Nick for noticing that the latest ECM Records catalogue lists “Concerts: Bregenz / München” as a 3-CD set:
Keith Jarrett: piano
Recorded May and June 1981
ECM 1227–29 | 3_CD 279 4570″
Only the Bregenz concert was released on CD (in the 1980s?). “Part IV” from the Munich concert was later released on the “Selected Recordings” compilation in 2002. ”Hymns/Spheres” was also re-released in January 2013, after years of being only available on vinyl (or as a single CD entitled “Spheres”), so it makes sense for “Concerts: Bregenz / München” to finally get a proper re-release on CD this year (hopefully, as the release date is not currently known).
Update (May 6, 2013). ECM Records confirms that ”Concerts: Bregenz / München” will be re-released, but not “soon” (which could mean 2014 or later).
Samples from “Somewhere” are now available on Amazon’s UK site. Thanks to Håvard for the information!
