Discovered this amazing treat at YouTube - the full concert DVD of the Keith Jarrett Trio's "Standards" concert on March 30, 1996 at Tokyo's Hitomi Memorial Hall. This DVD is long out of print, and it's one of the most beautiful and virtuosic sets this exceptional group has ever played. (I have a DVD copy but it got damaged somehow and won't play any more.)
It's been a tough few days, but music like this reminds us of the best human qualities: invention, improvisation, and humor, with a touch of chaos. Enjoy.
