Next Keith Jarrett album to be a 3-CD set entitled “Testament (Paris/London)”

Thanks to Jacques and Mourad for the information. Keith Jarrett’s next album will be a 3-CD set entitled “Testament (Paris/London)”. It will be released in late 2009 (probably October, but this is subject to change). It will probably include parts (or the entirety?) of two solo concerts from last year:

  • Salle Pleyel, Paris (November 26, 2008)
  • Royal Festival Hall, London (December 1, 2008)

Jacques adds that, according to an interview published in Jazzman in 2005, “Testament” is the name Keith Jarrett originally wanted to give to “Radiance”. It probably says something about the quality of the music on “Testament” (at least from Keith Jarrett’s point of view).

Update (July 29, 2009). Looks like the official release date is October 5, 2009 (according to the London concert “programme”).

Update (August 21, 2009). According to AllBlues and, the album should be released on October 2, 2009 in Switzerland and Germany (and probably other European countries).

Update (August 26, 2009). Amazon now has the cover artwork on their Web sites (UK, Germany, France, etc.). The number of discs (three!) is also confirmed.
