$30.00 Inc. GST

Facing You is the first solo piano album by Keith Jarrett, released in March 1972 by ECM Records. It was the first album produced by Manfred Eicher for ECM and the first of Jarrett’s many solo piano recordings for the label. The album consists of eight original compositions by Jarrett, which he recorded in one session at the Arne Bendiksen Studio in Oslo, Norway, on November 10, 1971.

The album showcases Jarrett’s unique style of improvisation, which combines elements of jazz, classical, folk, and avant-garde music. Jarrett plays with a wide range of dynamics, emotions, and techniques, creating a rich and varied musical landscape. The album is considered one of the most influential and groundbreaking works in solo piano history, as well as one of Jarrett’s best and most popular albums.

Some of the highlights of the album are “In Front”, a playful and energetic opener that sets the tone for the rest of the album; “Ritooria”, a lyrical and romantic piece that features Jarrett’s signature singing along with his playing; “Lalene”, a gentle and soothing ballad that contrasts with the more intense and complex pieces; “Starbright”, a catchy and upbeat tune that demonstrates Jarrett’s mastery of rhythm and melody; and “Semblence”, a free and adventurous piece that explores the outer limits of Jarrett’s imagination.
