Keith Jarrett: Bridge of Light

bridge of lightI’ve been listening to a lot of Keith Jarrett lately. I stopped for a while, I guess, following the infamous video that captures Jarrett losing his cool at a jazz concert in Europe.

I’m over that now.

People have a right to lose their cool every once-in-a-while. Even “jazz giants” like Keith Jarrett.

In the end… Jarrett is still a genius, and his prolific output of both jazz and classical works tend to prove that fact.

So, I’m currently listening to Keith Jarrett’s “Bridge of Light” CD, particularly his Concerto for Oboe and String Orchestra. It’s the kind of peaceful, intimate music that is perfect for a quiet Sunday at home.

My oldest son is home for the weekend, my youngest son is upstairs doing some school project, my wife is reading the latest Harry Potter book on the living room sofa. And I’ve been blogging, listening to good music, and watching a Keith Jarrett Trio DVD (earlier).

Yesterday was a big day. We celebrated my wife’s birthday by going to this fancy Brazilian Restaurant that features a lot of fabulous barbecued meats delivered to your table on this sword skewers. Being vegan, I still had lots to eat because they had this fabulous salad bar to please the vegetarians.

The gig at Le Papagayo was really great for the Flamenco group and the female Flamenco dancers were sexy and energetic, inviting members of the audience to dance with them. It was a good night, the place was packed both inside and outside in the patio areas.

So, now I’m tired and restful. Looking out the window at a beautiful, cool yet sunny afternoon. It’s days like this that I wish would last forever…..
