According to the National Endowment for the Arts website:
From Keith Jarrett’s profile:
“Although only music excites me, and awards and ceremonies do not, I feel honored to receive this NEA Jazz Masters Award, due to the many players on the list since 1982 that have been influential in my life. I’m honored to be in their company, and am reminded that the true nature of jazz has always relied on the individual players making their mark on the music of the future. Jazz is not dead as long as someone is playing with true inspiration.”
Thanks to Sean for the information!
“Mysteries / Shades” will be re-released as a double CD in the UK by BGO Records on May 6, 2013.
“Founded in 1987, BGO Records is an independent reissue label specialising in classic highly collectable recordings of groups, singers and instrumentalists from the fifties through to the eighties. (…) UK distribution is by Universal Music Group & Proper Music distribution.”
Re-released in 2009, “Fort Yawuh / Death and the Flower” are also available from the same label.
Both re-releases are available from bgo-records.com for £9.99.
Interestingly, “Mysteries / Shades” have already been re-released in Europe by Impulse Records in 2011 and are still available. The new release by BGO Records is supposed to include “extensive new liner notes”.
Thanks to Jon for the information!
It is with sadness that I learned today that Paul Motian has passed away. Paul was a fantastic drummer, who played on many Keith Jarrett recordings (“Life Between The Exit Signs”, “Expectations”, “The Mourning of a Star”, “Fort Yawuh”, “The Survivors’ Suite”, “At the Deer Head Inn”, etc.).
