As long as you're living yours the music of Keith Jarrett by Keith Jarrett( Recording )

5 editions published in 2000 in 3 languages and held by 340 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When an artist is feted as Keith Jarrett is on this tribute, it's usually thanks to compositional contributions that have enriched the jazz firmament. Jarrett's contributions are arguably more through force of personality and prodigious piano artistry than through his compositional output. That aside, producer Milan Simich delivers this 13-tune set as an eclectic tribute to Jarrett's writing. Reminiscent of Hal Willner's That's the Way I Feel Now tribute to Thelonious Monk and Meditations on Mingus , Simich has assembled a cast ranging from pop artist Bruce Hornsby, whose piano chops enliven the New Orleans second-line opener "Backhand," to the tender duo of violinist Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg and electric pianist Bob James on the understated "Book of Ways #9." Also notable are saxophonist Jimmy Greene and programmer Lord Jamar's minimalist take on "The Cure." Jarrett's oeuvre ranges from gospel pastiche to classical romance to a decided Ornette Coleman influence. The latter influence drives "Innocence," featuring George Garzone on tenor sax, and "Shades of Jazz", with Joe Lovano and Tom Harrell recalling Ornette and Don Cherry's spirited front line. Departures include Chucho Valdes's sprawling Cuban chops on "U Dance" and a rumbero treatment of Jarrett's "So Tender" from Nueva Rumba. The only solo track is a gentle lament from D.D. Jackson. --Willard Jenkins
