Vintage Keith Jarrett

Those who say jazz was dormant during the 1970s have clearly forgotten about Keith Jarrett's European Quartet with saxophonist Jan Garbarek, bassist Palle Danielsson, and drummer Jon Christensen. Check them out!

I'll go out on a limb here and say I think this band should be mentioned along with Miles' quintets and Coltrane's quartet when it comes to groups that played a significant role in shaping modern jazz and pushing the music in a forward trajectory. Just look at the drummers alone: Philly Joe, Tony Williams, Elvin Jones, Jon Christensen.
