    This album was originally released as part of the two-disc HYMNS/SPHERES. SPHERES is presented in four movements, all of which are improvisations on a baroque organ at the Benedictine Abbey in Ottobeuren, Germany. At the time of this recording Jarrett was enjoying considerable success with his solo piano recordings (in particular THE KOLN CONCERT and the mammoth SUN BEAR CONCERTS).
    However, where those performances are imbued with a certain gospel-tinged brightness and syncopation, SPHERES is decidedly slower. Given the nature of the organ itself, Jarrett turns his inquisitive musical sensibilities to pushing the possibilities of contrasting tonalities and long held note clusters. The pieces are at once regal and experimental. There's a vivid sense of space captured in the crystal clear production; the organ's timbres seem to dance through the abbey's centuries-old structure.
