The "Somewhere" in which the 'Standards' trio find themselves is Lucerne, Switzerland with a performance both exploratory and in-the-tradition. The Neue Zürcher Zeitung headlined its review of the show "kontrollierte Ekstase" - controlled ecstasy - an apt metaphor for a set that begins in improvisational "Deep Space" modulates into Miles Davis' "Solar", soars through the standards "Stars Fell On Alabama" and "Between The Devil And The Deep Blue Sea" and climaxes with an extended romp through West Side Story, as Bernstein's "Somewhere" and "Tonight" are bridged by the freely associative Jarrett original "Everywhere".

"Somewhere isn't so much a homecoming as it is a shoring up of a structure that has already held firm against many tides. Jarrett's ever-evolving pianism provides the aluminum siding, Peacock polishes the freshly installed hardwood floors, and DeJohnette fits new windows into every frame with until the house thrums with the presence of its longtime tenants. Being somewhere locates one not only in space, but also in time, and the album's clip reminds us that improvisation is a luxury never to be taken for granted. In this spirit they sound more with it than ever, due in no small part to the recording, which stands comfortably at the lip of the stage and twirls with delight. The result is an album that holds it own alongside Still Live as one of the trio's absolute finest." - ecmreviews.com
