''The recording conditions were not ideal. The doors in the back of the room were opened several times by people trying to squeeze in, making the sound from the espresso machine in the hall and the DJ playing ambient music in the garden faintly audible at the beginning of each set. Later halfway through the concert the windows of the room had to be opened for air. The DJ turned off his music but he was immediately replaced by the sound of birds singing.''
If listening closely one can hear them, chime in, in the quiet parts.

yes same thing happening here on one of my favorite Keith Jarrett recordings the SQ is also a bit similar, and this is a rare occasion of Keith accepting a participating audience with out telling them to be quiet but playing them quiet.

I have the second of these on vinyl but after Steve J posted the Live in Montreux I tried to check them out but cannot sort them out. Both recorded at Montreux in 1974 but somewhat different set lists. Maybe there were two sets, or there are different selections...

That is true.

Keith Jarrett is known for sometimes losing his temper with even the slightest noise from the audience.

I guess that is what a jet lack feels like if you are KeithJarrett.

Type the album title into google images and click on one. You should get a choice to go to the website or view image only. Choose the latter then copy the image url from the address window. It's usually a jpeg. Wiki or Amazon work.

 

Click 'reply' on the forum thread, then the little tree square, and paste the url into the first address bar that comes up. Click 'insert' and then post the thread.

 

I think that's it.

Pianist Keith Jarrett played the Umbria Jazz festival in 2007 and perpetrated if not the ugliest, then certainly the most famous public meltdown in jazz history. When he walked onstage and saw people in the crowd taking photos, he went to the microphone and cursed not only the “*******s with cameras” but also the “goddamn city” of Perugia. His rant was (of course) captured on video, and went viral on YouTube. Carlo Pagnotta, Umbria’s founder and artistic director, said Jarrett would never be welcome at the festival again........Pagnotta changed his mind. For Umbria’s 40th anniversary in July, he booked Jarrett’s trio .....

..........The trio came out and assumed their positions. Jarrett called out, “Zero lights!” The stage went dark. They began to play “On Green Dolphin Street.” It was after 9 p.m. Night had fallen. The only illumination on the stage was a small light on Peacock’s music stand. Peacock could barely be seen, Jarrett and DeJohnette not at all. Jarrett had found a way to keep a few selfish jerks from taking pictures, even if 4,000 well-behaved Jarrett fans had to share the punishment. Tickets in the front section cost 120 Euros.

 

 

Keith Jarrett is now in danger of being remembered more for his arrogance than for his art, and that would be unfortunate, because he is one of our greatest living jazz musicians.

Richard. I thought I remembered a posting of how to copy and paste a screenshot. Like Nad3020 I dont want to use photobucket etc. 

R.K. the forum cannot actually host an image (takes up too much bandwidth) so you'll need to copy the URL of any image you wish to use and paste it in the image dialog box.  If it's your own image then you'll need a hosting site to hold your images online.

This Count Basie album is absolutely superb;

Basie's West Coast tour was in full swing by mid-1958 and the band—with its "Atomic" book of arrangements—was in top form: Thad Jones, Snooky Young, Wendell Culley, Joe Newman (tp) Benny Powell, Henry Coker, Al Grey (tb) Frank Wess (as,ts,fl) Marshal Royal (as,cl) Billy Mitchell (ts) Frank Foster (ts,arr) Charlie Fowlkes (bar) Count Basie (p) Freddie Green (g) Eddie Jones (b) Sonny Payne (d) and Joe Williams (vcl).

The band's run at the Crescendo was recorded at various points along the way, with material from different nights sufacing in later years on a range of lables, incluidng Phontastic, Status, Laserlight and Jazz Hour. To my ear, the Phontastic material is the finest live audio I've heard of Basie's Atomic band at its peak—finer than the Roulette releases.

Yes it is a remarkable recording.

Those albums are part of a series of live in the studio albums they made, called the Studio Showcase series.

I believe there are 4 very diverse albums in the series but all with terrific SQ.

I count 5 downloads in the studio showcase series;

Carmen Gomes, Bach Reflections, Paul Berner Band, Batik, Tony Overwater & Bert van den Brink.
