Cracking The Egg…

KeithJarrettThis interview with Keith Jarrett by Ethan Iverson is by far the best (and most revealing) interview I have ever seen with the pianist. Specifically golden is Iverson’s ability to get Jarrett to talk about other pianists than himself (and get him to say good things no less!).

The one thing I don’t really understand is the seemingly ‘understood’ notion between Iverson and his cronies that the European Quartet is not worth discussing (or even listening to). It would have been nice to hear a little more about that period of Jarrett’s career.
