Keith Jarrett/Charlie Haden music review

Once in a while, an album comes along that transcends boundaries to exist on that higher plane of simply great music

Music feature

Jasmine
5/5

Once in a while, an album comes along that transcends boundaries to exist on that higher plane of simply great music, much like Miles Davis’s totemic Kind of Blue. Jarrett and Haden’s Jasmine hits that generational high note too. A simple duet recording of jazz standards (their first for more than 30 years), it captures the deeply empathetic beauty of their playing; Jarrett’s understated virtuosity cushioned perfectly by Haden’s exquisitely melancholic bass. Utterly compelling throughout, the term ‘masterpiece’ is no exaggeration here.
