Review: The piano prodigy is captured in ECM's home town at a solo concert at the end of his European tour. His improvisational skills in top form, he displays his genius across twelve extemporaneous compositions and three encores. The starting point for every Jarrett solo recital is the musical equivalent of a blank canvas. There is no preparation, no forethought, no planning. Creation begins the moment he sits at the piano and starts moving his fingers, allowing the music to flow out of him in a stream of consciousness.
