Jarrett enters DownBeat 'Hall of Fame'

Keith Jarrett is on the cover of the December issue of US jazz journal Down Beat, and officially voted into its long-established Hall of Fame in the 73rd Annual Readers Poll. Jarrett’s history is explored in a five page article that details his relationship with ECM as well as the characteristics of his three great groups – the “American” and “European” quartets and the long-running trio with Gary Peacock and Jack DeJohnette.

2008, 25th anniversary of the “Standards” project, has been a banner year for the pianist, marked by a number of ‘historical’ reissues – “Setting Standards” (bringing together the three volumes of music recorded in New York’s Power Station in 1983), and two DVDs of Japanese trio performances “Standards I/II” and “Live In Japan”. Additionally, three Jarrett titles were incorporated in ECM’s specially priced Touchstones series: “Facing You”, “Standards Live” and “Bye Bye Blackbird”.

The next album release from the Jarrett trio is “Yesterdays”, due in January 2009. More details soon.

Keith Jarrett is about to embark on a new round of solo piano concerts. These include Paris’s Salle Pleyel (November 26), London’s Royal Festival Hall (December 1), and New York’s Carnegie Hall (January 29).
