    Keith Jarrett's two primary '70s performing ensembles were based on two different continents (North America and Europe), and, for the most part, recorded for two different labels (Impulse and ECM). This 1976 recording of his American quartet was originally released in 1979, after they'd disbanded. Recorded live in concert in Austria, they're at their most organic here.
    Comprised primarily of the two-part title piece, there's a resonant soulfulness throughout. This is attributable to the players themselves--Jarrett's gospel-tinged chordal vamping, Charlie Haden's resonant, folky bass playing, Paul Motian's free-ranging percussion, and Dewey Redman's tenor saxophone. The latter in particular is deserving of much wider recognition, as his ability to turn from growling low register emotive blasts to near-funky lines is never short of dazzling, and completely natural. The 18-minute "Encore" was exactly that, and shows why this was such a stunning band, as they intuit each other's every move.
