Keith Jarrett will not play in Juan-les-Pins in 2014

According to Nice Matin, Keith Jarrett will not play in Juan-les-Pins in 2014:

On sait déjà qu’il se fera sans le pianiste Keith Jarrett, dont la prestation l’an dernier a déçu l’organisateur et le public.

« Ce n’est pas un départ définitif,souligne Jean-René Palacio. Mais je pense qu’il faut souffler au moins un an ». Avec ses deux complices, Jack DeJohnette et Gary Peacock, Jarrett venait de fêter les 30 ans de son trio… et leur 22e saison consécutive dans la pinède Gould !

To my knowledge, this will be the first time since 1999 that Keith Jarrett, Gary Peacock, and Jack DeJohnette will not play at the Jazz in Juan festival.

40th anniversary of the Bremen concert

On July 12, 1973, Keith Jarrett played a solo concert at the Sendesaal in Bremen, Germany. Part of that concert was released on “Solo Concerts: Bremen/Lausanne”.

Forty years later, on July 12, 2013, a “virtual concert” (that is, without Keith Jarrett) will take place at the same venue. A complete recording of the 1973 concert will be played, “including the unpublished portion of the first set” (“inklusive des unveröffentlichten Teils des ersten Sets”).

More information about this event (tickets, etc.) are available on sendesaal-bremen.de.

Thanks to Hartmut for the information!
