Not to mention that they improvise their asses of as opposed to playing by rote.

Interestingly enough Steve "Tales" was one of the few "sideman" dates Keith 
Jarrett has done in his career. You can probably count them on one hand after 
about 72. Fascinating to hear him in that context. Another that comes to mind is 
"Gnu High" by Kenny Wheeler. A breathtakingly beautiful recording. Certainly one 
of the most profoundly influential jazz trios to ever play together and I will 
say there are few pianists that I'm willing to sit and listen to playing 
standards all night but Keith is at the top of that list. Few have that level of 
melodic and lyrical continuity in their playing.

I just heard the Keith Jarrett trio play a night of standards yesterday in 
Seattle. In 1977, Gary Peacock assembled this group for the first time in a 
recording session for his record Tales of Another. The tracks were all originals 
by Peacock. In 1983, Jarrett reassembled the group to record three albums of 
standards in a day and a half. Over the next 19 years they recorded 20 more 
albums.
