France Musique recently broadcast the complete recording of a concert recorded on June 9, 1972 at the Studio 104 de la Maison de Radio France in Paris, with Charlie Haden and Paul Motian (more than two hours of music!). This concert is currently (and officially) available for streaming on the France Musique website (I don’t know how many days or weeks it will remain available, though).
France Musique will dedicate one week to Keith Jarrett, starting Monday, May 3, 2010, at the occasion of the release of the Keith Jarrett and Charlie Haden duo album “Jasmine” (ECM 2165).
- Monday, May 3 (19h10 > 20h00): Keith Jarrett 1/4 – Le sideman
- Tuesday, May 4 (19h10 > 20h00): Keith Jarrett 2/4 – Le compositeur
- Wednesday, May 5 (19h10 > 20h00): Keith Jarrett 3/4 – L’improvisateur
- Thursday, May 6 (19h10 > 20h00): Keith Jarrett 4/4 – Le work in progress
- Saturday, May 8 – Sunday, May 9 (1h00 > 7h00): nuit spéciale
An exclusive interview conducted by Alex Dutilh will be broadcast, as well as concerts recorded by France Musique (Paris, June 9, 1972, with Charlie Haden and Paul Motian, among others).
“Cet entretien inédit sert de fil conducteur à une nuit conçue comme une quête de soi, où des concerts enregistrés par France Musique (notamment le trio de 1972 à la Maison de Radio France avec Charlie Haden et Paul Moian) alterneront avec ses plus belles pages discographiques.”

Thanks to apherman969 for the information. BBC Radio 3 will broadcast a programme focused “on the music of pianist Keith Jarrett” on Monday, July 20, 2009 at 23:30. It will include “an exclusive interview with Jarrett conducted by pianist Ethan Iverson of the Bad Plus.”
Thanks to Peter for the information. Sveriges Radio P1, a Swedish radio channel, recently broadcast a program about “The Köln Concert” entitled “Det ospelbara pianot”. It’s in Swedish, but there are also some parts in English (e.g. Vera Brandes talking about what happened before the concert). The program is available for download in MP3 format.
