    WHAT:

    Just added to the Los Angeles Philharmonic’s 2015/16 season is “Keith Jarrett: Solo Piano,” at Walt Disney Concert Hall, Friday, April 29, 2016, at 8 p.m.

    A recipient of a NEA (National Endowment of the Arts) Jazz Masters Awards in January 2014, Jarrett is recognized worldwide as one of the most creative and uncompromising musicians of our times - universally acclaimed as an improviser of unsurpassed genius. Over the past 40+ years, his landmark improvised solo piano concerts and recordings have incorporated a broad spectrum of musical languages from jazz and classical to blues, folk and ethnic music traditions - revealing a dynamic creative process producing spontaneous music that is both deeply personal, yet universal.

    The solo piano improvisations on his best selling ECM Records such as Solo Concerts, Sun Bear Concerts, Paris Concert, Vienna Concert, La Scala, Radiance, The Carnegie Hall Concert, Testament: Paris/London, Rio and most recently Creation, a CD featuring 9 tracks taken from 2014 solo piano concerts in Tokyo, Toronto, Paris and Rome, have helped redefine the role of the piano in contemporary music. Jarrett’s career as a solo pianist is now the stuff of jazz legend, with the 1975 ECM release The Köln Concert becoming the best selling jazz piano recording in existence.
