So many threads about him recently -- but I'm surprised no one mentioned that he is featured in the latest Keyboard Mag with a great interview. Apparently it is a multi-installment piece.

Well, Keyboard is about a month late to Italy, so I had no idea.

BTW There are several great Jarrett interviews on past issues of the magazine, from different periods.

I agree, Jarret is the man. I only recently got turned on to him after seeing a documentary about his life. His approach to music is inspiring and his technique is just sick.

 

Gulliver I agree, the grunting and moaning is rather annoying, not so much that it is distracting, but that if I listen to any of his live concerts my roomates almost always think I'm watching porn. That said, I always thought it was kinda cool that he knows how to smack around a nice grand piano now and then.

Amazing. I'm reminded of Bobby Jones' famous quote after seeing Jack Nicklaus play golf: "He plays a game with which I am not familiar." (Not to say that I'm anything close to a Bobby Jones of the piano, but you guys presumably know what I mean.)

Notice the complete absence of sustain pedal, which is so often overused in solo piano playing. I only heard him use the pedal perhaps once during that whole 8 minute video.

He didn't use the pedal because he was standing and dancing all the time, which was imo a little weird...

Totally.

 

Cool that people have seen this, I've had the DVD this is off for ages, that has to be one of my fav solo piano performances in the history of the world.

 

Jarret is the man :D .

He is an amazing musician, no doubt, but I must say that I would like him much better if he would STFU while playing... Also his attempts at screwing a piano are not too pleasing to watch either. Just my opinion.

We know he looks and sounds like a retard when he plays, please stop mentioning this again and again and again...

because personally I found many moments of his concerts boring or monotonous. And I've seen three. No doubt he's good pianist buy come on,

don't exaggerate...

Yeah but you aren't the first person to mention it. Yes, we have eyes, we can see that he looks like complete geesch when he plays, and we have ears, we can hear him groaning and singing along. Need it be pointed out?

yes Clifton, if somebody thinks that needs to be point it out, it needs to be point it out.

The same way you can say we have ears and don't need to hear all the time that he is good (only sometimes for me anyway)

 

it's "free" forum I guess and we may point out

whatever we want, as long we don't point to a place where sun never reaches :D
