Email subscriptions (important)

I just realized today that the “Email” link under “Subscribe” in the right sidebar of the Web site was wrong. Feedburner, the service I use for email subscriptions, should have complained that the link was incorrect, but it didn’t. I have fixed the link, but, unfortunately, I have no way to retrieve the email addresses that have already been submitted with the wrong link.

If you have subscribed to before December 9, please subscribe again. If you’re already subscribed, a message will simply inform you that your email address “is already subscribed to the mailing list of”. If not, you will receive a confirmation email with a link that you need to click.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

“Yesterdays” to be released on January 26, 2009

According to a message on the Keith Jarrett Yahoo! Group, Keith Jarrett’s next album “Yesterdays” will be released on January 26, 2009 and will also be available on vinyl. Excerpt from the “program” for the recent concert in London:

“2001 was a vintage year for the Jarrett Trio, as three outstanding live albums – The Out-Of-Towners, Always Let Me Go and My Foolish Heart – have already shown. Yesterdays, recorded at Tokyo’s Metropolitan Festival Hall, is a fourth, with all-standards programme and a strong emphasis on bebop. It will be available in two versions: as single CD or double-LP with 180 gram vinyl – the first new vinyl release on ECM in 15 years.”

Thomas A. McGraw contacted Heino Frieberg at ECM Records. Here’s what Mr. Frieberg has to say about the lack of new releases in 2008:

“It’s right, this year we focused on re-issues and some DVD documentations for Jarrett. Who knows, to balance for that we may come up with a second new release of him later in 2009 …”
