Goldberg-Variationen by Johann Sebastian Bach( )

8 editions published in 1989 in 3 languages and held by 345 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The German pianist Lars Vogt refers to this 75-minute work as a "sacred object". It was 17 years before he was ready to record it. Informed by period performance practice but playing on a modern grand, Vogt uses very little pedal and keeps ornaments clean and graceful. Textures are transparent. The simplicity, wit and honesty of his approach makes this a wonderful addition to the catalogue by a versatile musician

As long as you're living yours : the music of Keith Jarrett by Keith Jarrett( Recording )

10 editions published in 2000 in 3 languages and held by 312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When an artist is feted as Keith Jarrett is on this tribute, it's usually thanks to compositional contributions that have enriched the jazz firmament. Jarrett's contributions are arguably more through force of personality and prodigious piano artistry than through his compositional output. That aside, producer Milan Simich delivers this 13-tune set as an eclectic tribute to Jarrett's writing. Reminiscent of Hal Willner's That's the Way I Feel Now tribute to Thelonious Monk and Meditations on Mingus, Simich has assembled a cast ranging from pop artist Bruce Hornsby, whose piano chops enliven the New Orleans second-line opener "Backhand," to the tender duo of violinist Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg and electric pianist Bob James on the understated "Book of Ways #9." Also notable are saxophonist Jimmy Greene and programmer Lord Jamar's minimalist take on "The Cure." Jarrett's oeuvre ranges from gospel pastiche to classical romance to a decided Ornette Coleman influence. The latter influence drives "Innocence," featuring George Garzone on tenor sax, and "Shades of Jazz", with Joe Lovano and Tom Harrell recalling Ornette and Don Cherry's spirited front line. Departures include Chucho Valdes's sprawling Cuban chops on "U Dance" and a rumbero treatment of Jarrett's "So Tender" from Nueva Rumba. The only solo track is a gentle lament from D.D. Jackson. --Willard Jenkins

Rio by Keith Jarrett( Recording )

20 editions published in 2011 in 5 languages and held by 306 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On April 9, 2011 Keith Jarrett returned to South America to perform three solo concerts. The third and final concert found him in Rio de Janeiro in front of a packed house and enthralled audience. Inspired by the electrifying atmosphere, the pianist pulls a broad range of material from the ether: thoughtful/reflective pieces, abstract sound-structures, pieces that fairly vibrate with energy. The double album climaxes with a marvelous sequence of encores
