Pianist Keith Jarrett became famous in the 1970s for his improvised solo concerts, and for leading two notable quartets; an American group with Dewey Redman, Charlie Haden and Paul Motian, and a European unit with Jan Garbarek.

In 1983, he teamed up for the first time in a trio with bassist Gary Peacock and drummer Jack DeJohnette.

Although at times they played free improvisations, the emphasis of the trio was on their versions of older jazz songs; in fact the unit became known as Keith Jarrett’s Standards Trio.

The group lasted on a part-time basis for 31 years through 2014, breaking up due to Peacock’s declining health.

Keith Jarrett was active until two strokes in 2018 forced him to retire.

From 1986, the trio’s version of Cole Porter’s “All Of You” features hard-swinging and close interplay by the three masterful musicians.
