Concerts That Changed Jazz

Keith Jarrett: The Koln Concert

Saturday 19 May 2007 18:00-18:30 (Radio 3)

John Fordham presents a guide to four jazz performances that had a significance outside jazz, and signalled a change, a beginning or an end of a movement or era.

Duration:

30 minutes

Playlist:

4/4. Keith Jarrett: The Koln Concert

Keith Jarrett had been at the heart of the Miles Davis jazz rock revolution but his performance on a substandard piano was to transform the direction of jazz and the fortunes of the tiny record label ECM, making not only acoustic but chamber jazz an acceptable route for improvising musicians. Like Miles Davis's Kind of Blue, the record became a classic that appealed to an audience outside the jazz constituency.
