What? You Quantized Keith Jarrett? My Funny Valentine
Updated: Aug 20, 2021
Jarrett has recorded much too much for his or our own good. But, as most people would agree, sometimes he is so good that you think he must have been touched by a higher power or channeling some cosmic wisdom.
On the "Still Live" album, he plays this version of My Funny
Valentine. Beware, he doesn't keep it all ballad like, but goes into a frenzy, here.
Reason I am posting this is that his playing is so wonderful that , even if it is quantized (meaning, all the notes are on the beat, but it includes triplets and 32nd notes) AND the velocity is even for every note he plays... it still sounds wonderful.
The style is found in the Ballad Pack 1
Eerie, isn"t it?
