Thanks to all for the info....on and off the list. This is tremendously helpful. His career is amazing indeed. I've always viewed him as one of the greatest improvisational artists ever. In his own league really. I think his solo - one out of many - on "In Love In Vain" on Standards Vol II is about as perfectly constructed as one can play a solo in my opinion. His logic is breathtaking. Same with his performance on "Heyoke" on "Gnu High." My goodness. If you've never heard that one put it on one night and sit back. 
  I though, like a few others, am puzzled why he basically stopped recording as a side man after the mid 70's. I've read a few interviews with him but in those he never talked about it. His younger brother Chris, who now lives in Germany, is an interesting pianist as well. Has anyone ever heard him? Conceptually he's somewhat like Keith in what he explores but lacks his improvisational insight and depth. From the trivial platform he looks just like Keith but never talks about him so I'm not sure what that relationship is. The family is musical for sure as his older brother Scott is a composer.

Hello to all. Seeking some help........I'm putting together a Keith Jarrett

Rhino had a two-CD set a couple of years back titled "Foundation" which
featured tracks from many of the recordings mentioned already - the Art
Blakey and Bob Moses items in particular - not currently available except as
a download from Rhino. I used several tracks from it recently while
featuring the new Jarrett solo recording.
