The great improvising pianist's first ECM DVD release documents his 150th performance in Japan. This complete Keith Jarrett solo concert from 2002 includes the 'Tokyo' selections from the acclaimed album 'Radiance' plus more than one hour of previously unissued music.

There is nothing like a Keith Jarrett solo concert. Now it is possible to watch as well as hear the great jazzman not "merely" improvising but sculpting form in the moment. Director Kaname Kawachi has made an elegant film that captures the process live at Tokyo's beautiful Metropolitan Festival Hall.

The rapt audience inspires the performer to new heights. In a statement Jarrett wrote for the 2002 tour he said, "The Japanese public has always welcomed my music with an open mind and heart. It's an honour to feel this respect for my work. I haven't played 150 concerts in any geographic location as contained as Japan, yet I always feel as though I have a big, open workshop for the music here. Thank you for listening."

Jarrett's evening-length improvisation is built up in this case from 'episodes', self-contained pieces of music that add up to a larger form. The moods roved through are many. At the concert's end he plays three standards - the Irish traditional tune "Danny Boy", "Ol' Man River", and "Don't Worry 'Bout Me", the latter associated with Art Tatum and Count Basie, amongst others.
