EDITORS’ NOTES

Keith Jarrett was reemerging in 1998 after a bout with illness. This live date from Newark, NJ, finds the pianist testing the waters with his longtime trio. It’s a document rich with promise, as he tackles John Coltrane’s labyrinthine “Moment’s Notice” for the first time on record, among other gems such as Paul Desmond’s ballad “Late Lament” and Pete La Roca’s midtempo blues “One for Majid” (from Art Farmer’s mid-’60s repertoire). There are rough spots, but they make it all the more poignant.
