Keith Jarrett ranks among the most accomplished and influential pianists in jazz history. His Koln Concert stands among the most important jazz recordings of the past four decades, not only because of the music on the record, but also because of the remarkable reception it has received from musicians and lay-listeners alike. Since the album's 1975 release, it has sold over three million copies: a remarkable achievement for any jazz record, but an unprecedented feat for a two-disc set of solo piano performances featuring no well-known songs. In Keith Jarrett's The Koln Concert, author Peter Elsdon seeks to uncover what it is about this recording, about Keith Jarrett's performance, that elicits such success. Recognizing The Koln Concert as a multi-faceted text, Elsdon engages with it musically, culturally, aesthetically, and historically in order to understand the concert and album as a means through which Jarrett articulated his own cultural and musical outlook, and establish himself

MEDIA REVIEWS
a thought-provoking, tightly focused and scholarly piece of work, of considerable interest not only to Jarrett aficionados, but also to anyone fascinated by the processes involved in playing, listening to and marketing music. * Chris Parker, LondonJazz *
Elsdon is very good at exploring the recurring motifs and styles of Jarretts improvisations, his rhapsodic virtuosity, lengthy groove passages ... He is strong on the theory of music and its performance * Simon Adams, Jazz Journal *
