Keith Jarrett and Charlie Haden broaden the scope of their duo project to showcase jazz classics like Thelonious Monk s Round Midnight and Bud Powell s spritely Dance Of The Infidels. Love songs, however, are to the fore in this selection, with tender versions of My Old Flame, My Ship, It Might As Well Be Spring, Everything Happens To Me, and Every Time We Say Goodbye as well as alternate takes of Where Can I Go Without You and Goodbye, every bit as touching as the Jasmine renditions.
When we play together it s like two people singing, said Jarrett of his reunion with Haden. The intentions of the song are honored, the shades of meaning in a melody or a lyric explored instrumentally.
As Charlie Haden put it, Keith really listens, and I listen. That s the secret. It s about listening.
The music of Last Dance was recorded at Keith Jarrett s home studio is is available on CD and vinyl.
