Biography

New York, United States (1983 – present)

In 1983, acclaimed American jazz pianist Keith Jarrett asked bassist Gary Peacock and drummer Jack DeJohnette (the latter his colleague in the Charles Lloyd Quartet of the late 1960s) to record an album of jazz standards that was released simply entitled Standards, Volume 1. The three had previously worked on Peacock’s 1977 album Tales of Another.

Standards, Volume 2 and Changes, both recorded at the same session in New York, followed soon after. The success of these albums and the group’s ensuing tour, which came as traditional acoustic post-bop was enjoying an upswing in the early 1980s, led to this new “Standards Trio” becoming one of the premier working groups in jazz, and certainly one of the most enduring, continuing to record and perform live over more than twenty years.

The Jarrett/Peacock/DeJohnette trio has also produced recordings that consist largely of challenging original material, most notably 1987’s Changeless. (These recordings are noted above.) Several of the standards albums contain an original track or two, some attributed to Jarrett but mostly group improvisations. The live recordings Inside Out and Always Let Me Go (both released in 2001) marked a renewed interest by the trio in wholly improvised free jazz. By this point in their history, the musical communication between these three men had become all but telepathic, and their group improvisations frequently take on a complexity that sounds almost composed.

    It's called: Keith Jarrett, Gary Peacock, Jack DeJohnette [3] Just heard them at the Munich Philharmonie on July, 9th, celebrating the 70th B-Day of their long-term ECM producer, Manfred Eicher. The evening was recorded, so one should be able to buy a CD someday. This was the setlist: July 9, 2013 - Munich - Gasteig 1) You Go to My Head 2) Little Man You Had A Big Day 3) Is It Really The Same (Keith Jarrett) 4) It Never Entered My Mind 5) Hallucinations 6) I Thought About You 7) Things Ain't What They Used To Be (Duke Ellington) 8) Answer Me My Love (Encores) 9) When Will The Blues Leave 10) When I Fall In Love 11) Straight No Chaser (Thelonius Monk)

    Despite being often referred to as "Keith Jarrett Trio", on most CDs the artist name is "Keith Jarrett, Gary Peacock, Jack DeJohnette". Please vote Keith Jarrett Trio > Keith Jarrett, Gary Peacock, Jack DeJohnette.

    When he's recording in a trio with Peacock & DeJohnette, they're called "Standards Trio".

    The play count is probably (partly) lower because most of their better songs are longer.

    Their concert today in the KKL Lucerne was amazing. I think it'll be hard for me to get to hear such an amazing thing ever again... And after all I think Keith Jarrett trio is a quite accurate name, because without Keith Jarrett's amazing piano playing... the main part would be missing imho... even if I really did like Peacock's and DeJohnette's playing too! After all it's just a name, and the most important thing is what they show on stage, isn't it? And that was breathtaking and fascinating... Hats off to Keith Jarrett, Gary Peacock and Jack Dejohnette!
