Keith Jarrett, born in Pennsylvania in 1945, is an American pianist and composer. As a child he demonstrated extraordinary musical talent. He began taking piano lessons at the age of three and performed on a TV talent show hosted by Paul Whiteman at the age of five.
Earlier in his career he collaborated primarily with drummer and bandleader Art Blakey. Later he worked with saxophonist Charles Lloyd and trumpeter Miles Davis.
In 1983 he formed his own trio with double bass player Gary Peacock and drummer Jack DeJohnette. Jarrett has dedicated his life to the fusion of classical and jazz music, and his achievements are evident to all jazz (and not only jazz) lovers.
I would recommend listening to his 1975 live album, The Köln Concert (double record set). It fully reflects his immense talent and it’s one of his most famous records.
