Jasmine marks Keith Jarrett's first recorded collaboration in decades (other than with his standards trio) and reunites him with the great bassist Charlie Haden, a close partner until the mid-seventies.

Overview

Jasmine marks Keith Jarrett's first recorded collaboration in decades (other than with his standards trio) and reunites him with the great bassist Charlie Haden, a close partner until the mid-seventies.

Intimate, spontaneous, and warm, this album of love songs recorded at Jarrett's home has affinities in its unaffected directness with his solo collection The Melody At Night With You.

These deeply felt performances should inspire any listener "to call your wife or husband or lover in late at night," as Jarrett says in his liner notes, "These are great love songs played by players who are trying, mostly, to keep the message intact."

The program on Jasmine includes such classic songs as "Body and Soul," "For All We Know," "Where Can I Go Without You," "Don't Ever Leave Me," as well as a rare Jarrett cover of a contemporary pop song, "One Day I'll Fly Away." From the Label

Editorial Reviews

The New Yorker - Steve Futterman
Exceptional.... Throughout, the duo operates in a comfort zone that values felicitous melody and openhearted sentiment over displays of bravado. Jasmine is as unashamedly expressive a recording as either man has ever made.
