Continuing the 2020 news... Keith Jarrett Confronts a Future Without the Piano The pathbreaking musician reveals the health issues that make it unlikely he will ever again perform in public.

Excellent article from the NY Times Magazine about the terrible loss that occurred from the 2008 Universal Studios fire. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/06/11/magazine/universal-fire-master-recordin

All these dumb vinyl resurgence articles always neglect to mention what percentage of people buying LPs actually listen to them.

Incredibly sad. I can't imagine Keith Jarrett being unable to play the piano. Ric and I were in one of those audiences that he harranged for coughing too much, and many in the audience turned against him and openly heckled him. A meaner person might suggest a karmic retribution, but even that night he returned to the stage and took requests until he got back into the music and played quite awhile longer.

Wow, yeah, that’s just what a stroke is like.  There’s a cognitive disconnect.  The only reason I figured out right away that I was having one was because my mother had started having them and we (my sisters and I) were doing research and sharing with each other.  But I will admit, it took me a while.  I feel very fortunate that I completely recovered.  I can’t even imagine what that feels like, emotionally, to realize it’s permanent.  That would be hell.

That concert and hearing for the first time in an concert space, certainly an acoustically great full concert space, but sounds I never had similarly before, a person within sight, but down the isle, rotating his thumb on a water bottle label, a foot slightly shifting, in likely a still shoe, a row back and down... I mean even when I type that it sounds like an exaggeration... except I mentioned both after the show. I'd never experience massive group silence before. That degree of silence anyway. Even it it was interrupted with yells. Artist v. audience is always an interesting battle, but Jarrett made me a convert to his side. I can't thank you enough for the invite.

I hope Jarrett can find contentment within his situation and maybe even find a way to still musically create to his high standards. 

And sorry to hear you've gone through it Dusty.
