1. I can't stop listening to Part II B of the Koln Concert.

It's captivating to the point of obsession. And to think it's played on a less-than-ideal piano and improvised.

2. This goes back some years, but I used to go to a fair number of his concerts.

I saw him with that remarkable quartet, Dewey Redman, Paul Motian and Charlie Haden, at the Village Vanguard. That group was probably my favorite Jarrett incarnation, but there's been so many.

It was unbelievable.

I saw a number of the solo concerts as well in LA. Always interesting; always interesting.

I still remember the first time I heard "Death and the Flower." It was 1975. It was a horrible time in my life, and death was very much on my mind, and somehow that music had something, not everything but something, with staying alive.

And then there's that beautiful and rare album, "Birth."

You know that he sued "Steely Dan" and won. (They claimed that their appropriation of the music was a tribute, but now they pay royalties on "Gaucho." It's funny, but I loved both Gaucho and "As Long as You Know You're Living Yours" but somehow never attached them to one another.

You have to admit though, this guy Carlos Vamos is quite interesting himself.
