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

4 editions published in 2000 in Undetermined and English and held by 335 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

Levitate by Bruce Hornsby( Recording )

5 editions published in 2009 in English and German and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

If there were any doubt that Bruce Hornsby had completely redefined himself as a "do whatever I want to" musician rather than the pop/rock singer/songwriter he had appeared to be upon his popular emergence 20 years earlier, that doubt should have been dispersed by his two album releases of 2007, the bluegrass duo set Ricky Skaggs & Bruce Hornsby and the jazz trio session Camp Meeting with Christian McBride and Jack DeJohnette. That liberation accomplished at last, Hornsby unsurprisingly returns to the pop/rock singer/songwriter mode on Levitate, his first album since 1993's A Night on the Town to be co-credited to his backup band. But his old group the Range is long gone, replaced by an ensemble pointedly called the Noisemakers (John "J.T." Thomas on organ and keyboards, Bobby Read on reeds, Doug Derryberry on guitar, J.V. Collier on bass, and Sonny Emory on drums), who have been backing him as a unit since 2002 -- although some of the musicians have been with him since the early '90s -- and the sound of Levitate only occasionally recalls the Bruce Hornsby of "That's the Way It Is," "Mandolin Rain," and "The Valley Road." Instead, he and the Noisemakers come up with combustible jazz-rock arrangements revealing the influence of Steely Dan (notably on "Paperboy") and Brian Wilson ("Michael Raphael"), used to support sometimes bizarrely humorous lyrics, as signaled by the opening song, "The Black Rats of London." In truth, Hornsby isn't much of a lyricist, if only because he doesn't seem to know what to write about, and his songwriting has never recovered from the loss of his brother John Hornsby as a co-writer. The best songs here are co-compositions, particularly "Cyclone," with a strong, evocative, and characteristic lyric from former Grateful Dead lyricist Robert Hunter, as well as "Continents Drift" and "Simple Prayer," both co-written by Chip deMatteo. The album's unevenness also may be due to the multiple purposes that inspired the material, however. The music in some cases seems to have been written for different projects and retrofitted here: the title song (based on a theme in Thomas Newman's score for The Shawshank Redemption) appeared in a different version in director Spike Lee's film Kobe Doin' Work; "Invisible" is in director Bobcat Goldthwait's August 2009 film World's Greatest Dad, starring Robin Williams, in which Hornsby has a cameo; and some of the music apparently is intended for a Broadway musical to be written by Hornsby, called SCKBSTD. No wonder the album comes across as a collection of sessions instead of a coherent whole. Nevertheless, old-time Hornsby fans who fell away over the years might want to give this one a listen; it's closer to his singer/songwriter self than he's been in many years. William Ruhlmann
Love for Levon : a benefit to save the barn( Recording )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Back of container: "What do Joe Walsh, Gregg Allman, Mavis Staples, John Mayer, Dierks Bentley, Bruce Hornsby, Lucinda Williams, Roger Waters, John Hiatt, and Ray LaMontagne all have in common? They loved Levon Helm, the man and his music. Some of the best musicians on the planet convened on October 3, 2012, at the Izod Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey, to honor the beloved drummer and singer with the crinkly grin. This was the Love for Levon extravaganza--27 songs capped by a full-group finale of The weight, one of Levon's greatest moments on record. On this magical night, everyone gave the drummer some ... love. You can't 'Levon" without L-O-V-E."
