“ Keith Jarrett Confronts a Future Without the Piano: The pathbreaking musician reveals the health issues that make it unlikely he will ever again perform in public.”
This is sad news, obviously. I wish Keith all the very best in his recovery.
Thanks to David for the link.
The album is starting to appear on online music stores. The release date
should be October 30, 2020 from what I gather.
“Budapest Concert” cover
It will be released on CD and vinyl.
“The 2nd complete show to be issued from Keith Jarrett’s 2016 European tour, following the acclaimed Munich 2016 concert. This double album documents the pianist’s solo performance at Budapest’s Bela Bartók National Concert Hall. Jarrett, whose roots go back to Hungary, saw it as a homecoming; the context inspired much creative improvisation. His later concerts are comprised of independent movements, each a marvel of spontaneous resourcefulness and creative energy.”
The tracklist is as follows:
Part I (14:42) Part II (6:54) Part III (8:10) Part IV (7:35)
Part V (5:13) Part VI (3:52) Part VII (5:45) Part VIII (5:35) Part IX (2:42) Part X (8:40) Part XI (5:54) Part XII – Blues (4:04) It’s A Lonesome Old Town (8:01) Answer Me (4:55)
