    Personnel: Keith Jarrett (piano).
    Though pianist Keith Jarrett has dabbled in many styles and genres over the years, he is most renowned, and deservedly so, for his solo piano performances. Live albums like THE KOLN CONCERT and LA SCALA feature Jarrett engaged in extended improvisations, exploring motifs and phrases, and turning them inside-out with a dazzling ear for detail and permutation. The two-disc set RADIANCE belongs with Jarrett's finest improv concerts. Recorded while the artist was on a 2002 tour of Japan, RADIANCE represents Jarrett's unique, genre-bending playing at its best.
    Jarrett's wide range of influences is threaded throughout--strains of classical, jazz, pop, and world music are identifiable here and there. As with all his improvised work, there is a great feeling of exhilaration for the listener in discovering--along with his concert audience--where Jarrett will go next. In fact, RADIANCE feels even more open-ended than previous efforts in that it relies less on recurring themes and more on small bits of musical connective tissue, which lead the playing in ever-shifting directions. Yet Jarrett's skill and innate sense of balance and pacing are such that the music rarely feels disjointed, making RADIANCE a rich, thoroughly engaging listening.

  • Critic Reviews
    Down Beat (p.63) - "PART 5 is particularly exciting, featuring Jarrett's dazzling two-hand tandem whorls and eddies..."
    JazzTimes (p.94) - "Jarrett launches onto three-note cells or rhythmic snaps during the longer pieces to propel him on journeys from one section into an unknown that coalesces into something new, measured and gripping at once."
    Mojo (Publisher) (p.96) - 3 stars out of 5 - "[O]ne emerges once again from the Jarrett experience quietly changed."
