“Book of Ways” to be re-issued on CD on March 10, 2023

Book of Ways will be released by ECM as a 2-CD package on March 10, 2023 (see also Facebook post).

After 36 years: ‘Book of Ways’ is available in exclusive packaging starting March 10th. ‘Book of Ways’ was recorded on the 14th of July 1986 in Ludwigsburg. The sequence of improvisations has been adapted for this double album without being changed in order. Rather amazing is the great variety of sound and rhythm – Jarrett played alternately one or two instruments simultaneously. Beyond unmistakeable echoes of lute music and Japanese koto, the whole range of modes of expression the clavichord is capable of is being fathomed out. All this has been supported by studio techniques, which recorded the sound of the instrument with rarely heard intensity. The re-issue 2-CD comes in a new packaging with high quality paper sleeves and gold embossed lettering.
