This captivating 2CD set documents the music made by the Keith Jarrett Trio at Montreux's Stravinsky Auditorium in July 2001. It is an unusually encyclopedic performance.

'My Foolish Heart' documents the music made by Keith Jarrett, Gary Peacock and Jack DeJohnette at Montreux's Stravinsky Auditorium in July 2001. It is an unusually encyclopedic performance, even by the trio's criteria, and one that fairly romps through the history of jazz in celebratory spirit.

There are tunes from some of the music's masters - Miles Davis, Thelonious Monk, and Sonny Rollins - along with a characteristic scattering of standard tunes, too. In each instance the musicians prise open fresh perspectives on familiar, and timeless, material.

Unique to this concert is the inclusion of three pieces in stride and ragtime styles, played with verve enough to conjure up the ghost of Fats Waller on "Ain't Misbehavin'", and "Honeysuckle Rose" (both Waller tunes) and on "You Took Advantage Of Me", a Rodgers and Hart piece from the 1928 musical "Present Arms": in total more than twenty minutes in the ragtime zone before the trio exits by way of Monk's "Straight, No Chaser", a further expression of the balance between joy, creativity and idiosyncratic humor that is specific to jazz.
