Keith Jarrett/Gary Peacock/Jack DeJohnette: Somewhere
Formate: Audio CD
Released: 2013
Label: Ecm Records

Having listened to the first song by Miles Davis called Solar, you can be sure that the pianist Keith Jarrett, contra bassist Gary Peacock and the drummer Jack DeJohnette are not stuck in the 1970s but still keep going on and on. A beautiful calm acapella piano Intro is replaced by perfect jazz variations, fast tempo, restless rhythm and surprising persuasive etude solos open to all the players. There are six modest songs on the 65-minute-long album but you will certainly not be bored at all. Aside from the mentioned Davis, there is also the West Side Story classic by Leonard Bernstein Somewhere/Everywhere on the album, which is transferred to an emotional coda by Jarrett. You will also find a balladic romance by Johny Mercer and Jimmy van Heusen called I Thought About You on the record, a modern swing Between The Devil and The Blue Sea  by Harold Arlen and Ted Koehler or a love song Stars Fell on written by Frank Perkins and Mitchell Parish. In this last song Jarrett proves that it is possible to create an emotional opus worth remembering even from a soft love song. Somewhere album certainly deserves respect; especially because it was created by someone who actively participated in the birth of a modern jazz.
