    Keith Jarrett ;  May  4th - 10th

    This Friday Keith Jarrett turns 70. He’s been at the forefront of jazz piano since his first recording back in 1967 with the late Charlie Haden up to his latest duo outing with the same bassist  in 2013 – not forgetting his renowned Standards Trio . Together for 30 years, they are  one of most permanent line-ups in jazz history. His reach goes far beyond jazz – renowned as an interpreter as well as an improviser. All this week on the Blue, we play Jarrett – jazz, classical and solo improv. Happy Birthday Keith.
