    On the way home from work last night I heard a fantastic recording, "Facing East" by Keith Jarrett.

    Does anyone know what album this is from?

    I am not familiar with KJ. Given the odd growling he did accompanying his playing and the monsterright hand, I had thought it was Oscar Peterson.

    So, I tried to find the album with this tune on Amazon last night, but I couldn't; perhaps is is too newly released.

    Besides this album, are there any other Keith Jarrett album recommendations?

    Take care, Happy Thanksgiving.

    It's taken from the brand new Jarrett/Peacock/DeJohnette CD, 'Always Let Me Go' - a double album. It's unbelieveably brilliant - I got it yesterday morning, and have listened to the first disc about 5 times, and the other one 3 times. Excellent stuff - the improvisational interplay between the trio is outstanding, and DeJohnette's sense of space on the drums is breath-taking...

    I'm really really loving this album...

    there are a lot of classic Jarrett CDs - Paris, Tokyo and Koln are the three famous in concert ones, Standards vol 1 & 2 are both excellent too...

    Basically, he's not done much that's rubbish in 30 years... :oops:)

    Get the new one though, it's spectacular.
