I want to talk about Keith Jarrett. The man who (reluctantly) helped Miles go electric.
But that’s not what I want to talk about. Responsible for the most popular solo piano recording of all time, the Koln concert, he is a huge inspiration for our track Lemon. His ability to improvise and use the well of music within him to produce a blend of gospel, classical, film music, blues, improv and (almost) pop is mindblowing.
So when me and Andy sat down to improvise (coming from a much different place, obviously) for what became Lemon, I tried to get to a similar place that Mr Jarrett gets to. I AM NOT COMPARING US TO KEITH JARRETT. (I am comparing us to Keith Jarrett)
So let’s talk….. Do people get the link? Here is Mr Jarrett’s Americana from his 1988 album Dark Intervals and below that is Lemon, taken from our forthcoming EP release on Tirk.
