Two long out of print concert films of the ‘Standards Trio’ in Tokyo - 1985 and 1986 - make their first appearance on ECM as a specially priced 2-DVD set. The two Japanese shows - earliest filmed documents of the trio - have quite different characters.
Volume I finds Jarrett reaching into a down-home, country-and-gospel inflected mode on several tunes, especially his own piece “Rider” and the Arthur Herzog/Billie Holiday “God Bless The Child”. In these moments, the trio moves into a joyful zone that has qualities in common with Jarrett’s playing in the Belonging band.
Volume II features a particularly exquisite performance of an all-standards programme, with a transcendent “On Green Dolphin Street” and a version of Dizzy Gillespie’s “Woody’n’You” that embodies the best of bebop.
