Standards Vol.1: Keith Jarrett
One dark and damp night, last March, after the big quake, we were in Shirosawa, Tokyo at Lady Janes. There were five or six of us. Local friends and the four of us visiting from New York and Portland. On the Technics SP25 was Standards Vol 1. The cocktails and ambience were, as often is the case in Tokyo, perfect. To misquote Christopher Hitchens: “We burned the candle at both ends. It cast a warm glow”. Listening to it now on the studio stereo and the night returns. Another warm Tokyo memory.
