2019 Touchstone series release.
The protagonists had already recorded together on Gary Peacock’s Tales of Another in 1977, but Jarrett’s Standards project, with its dedication to the Great American Songbook, proposed a new sphere of operation, one that would make this trio among the best-loved bands in all of jazz. This New York Power Station recording from January 1983 established the simple blueprint: honour the standards as compositions and discover where the material can lead a creative improviser. There is fabulous playing here, including a wildly inventive “All The Things You Are”, and heart-rending versions of “Meaning of the Blues” and “It Never Entered My Mind”.
