    "Never Let Me Go" by Keith Jarrett and the Standards Trio.
    *If a man wants God to hear his prayer quickly, then before he prays for anything else, even his own soul, when he stands and stretches out his hands towards God, he must pray with all his heart for his enemies. Through this action God will hear everything that he asks* -Abba Zeno-

    *Protagoras: "Truth is subjective. What is true for you, and what is true for me, is true for me. Your opinion is true by virtue of its being your opinion."

    *Socrates: "My opinion is: Truth is absolute, not opinion, and that you are in absolute error. Since this is my opinion, then according to your philosophy you must grant that it is true."

    Keith Jarrett/Gary Peacock/Jack DeJohnette from the double CD "Whisper Not", ECM Records 2000, recorded Live July 5, 1999 at the Palais des Congres, Paris.

    CD 2 first song - What Is This Thing Called Love 12:33, by Cole Porter. KJ from the beginning typically struggling fearslessly with the piano until JD and GP fall in, and they all enter a speedy tempo.

    I have never in my life listened to a trio, who so completely fullfill my own dreams of how jazz should be played. THANK YOU KEITH JARRETT.

    Corno Dolce are you serious?

    You stated: "Of course, with the advent of music downloads maybe we ARE seeing the end of the CD as we know it. We download all we want and then into the Ipod it goes. Yep, no more need for stores to carry CD's - no costs for manufacturing facilities, machinery, labor, shipping, and handling of the physical product. Yep, just think - fewer jobs because of all this technological advancement. No wonder then we see an explosion of fast-food enterprises - they take up the surplus of unskilled labor.".

    In your esteemation dear sir, what is around the corner in the US as to technical advancement post the Ipod? Haven´t been there yet though, I still prefer the old huge speakers in my livingroom, specially manufactored for acoustic jazz music at the price of an F-16 aircraft.

    iPods (can and do) interface via your computer and wireless connections to your HiFi system ... no need to get rid of the big speakers at all!

    Hi CT64

    Thank you. Now my friend would you do me a favour, please translate your post for someone from the 101 class "and wireless connections to your HiFi system...".

    Have you any idea of the age of my HiFi system(-s)?

    Back on topic.

    Keith Jarrett/Gary Peacock/Paul Motian live "At The Deer Head In", ECM Records 1994.

    Creating the Standards Trio in the beginng of the 1980´s, KJ had not performed with Paul Motian for 16 years. So at one occasion, while KJ back in Allen Town, Pennsylvania, where he did his first piano job at the jazz club The Deer Head Inn, Jack DeJohnnette was engaged elsewhere on the night.

    So Paul Motian replaced brother Jack and sat behind the kit on this live recording, playing Standards Trio repertoire. Incredible difference of the total sound picture. The two highly educated world wide famous drummers, but with very different drum style. Yet a great album.

    "Whisper Not" by Keith Jarrett.

    In re to post-Ipod: Gee, I'm kinda out of my league in this area. However, I will guesstimate that we might soon see a whole CD on a flash-memory chip the size of an average human thumbnail. Flash-memory chips are more durable than the drive inside an Ipod.

    Methinks that the technology for making a one Terabyte Ipod using flash-memory is already upon us and will be the same size as current Ipods. But initially it will be expensive - around $2000 a unit. Then the economies of scale will kick in and the price will settle around $1000 a unit - still a chunk of change for most. Again, this is just pure guesstimation on my part.

    Honestly sir Corno Dolce

    Are there things in our western societies at all, you don´t know about. The living encyclopedia from Oceania. Thanks - A 1000 bucks. Right.

    Incredible isn´t it, thinking back in history. When the mono radio, the turntable, and then tape recorder were invented. Then the TV and the colour TV, HiFi Stereo systems, video-player and recorder/camera, surround sound system, the PC, CD´s, DVD´s, iPod - download all we want. It changes faster and faster. And we the people, the always hungry for new stuff regular customers, the latest of anything, we always dig in and pay, pay, pay.

    Perhaps it´s time for me to begin to sing acapella again.

    "Setting Standards" by Keith Jarrett.

    Dearest Intet,

    There is so terribly much that I don't know and I am painfully aware of that I know that I don't know very much. We can always choose to not "keep up with the Joneses" - ergo, follow the flock and shop till you drop.

    With each passing year I find that those who are happiest are the ones with skills to create something of value, not necessarily monetarily, something that will bring joy to someone else - like music - performed or composed.

    Having a skill to create something with ones own hand shows the Love you have inside your own heart, mind, body, and soul. Creation is Love and people respond positively when they sense something that has been done with Love.

    Cheers,

    CD

    Back on topic on a stormy saturday morning.

    "The Complete Recordings" by The Standards Trio. Live at The Blue Note Jazz Club, N.Y.C., USA from Friday June 3 - Sunday June 5, ECM Records 1994.

    On this 6 CD set, including 3 concerts 1. and 2. set every night at The Blue Note Jarrett, Peacock and DeJohnette improvises on all the known jazz standards we already know by the trio live to a small VIP audience. The whole set was quite expensive for me, but man it´s good. You just can´t take one of the CD´s and title it the best. It´s a revalation of equillibrism on the piano, the double bass and the drums - groovy!!

    But if forced, I would choose the CD from Saturday June 4 - 2. set, the two songs: "Things Ain´t What They Used To Be" and "How Deep Is The Ocean".
