Too Young To Go Steady
I've started a transcription of "Too Young To Go Steady" as performed by Keith Jarret's standards trio. If you haven't heard this track, I encourage you to seek it out. It has been regarded as one of the most exemplary models in the whole of jazz, representing the pinnacle of achievement as improvisers within the trio. As one examines the motifs, one finds that melodic integrity has priority over following the changes. Keith's performance is so melodically grounded; there are moments where he imitates Bach. It's amazing that his knowledge of music is so extensive that it enables him to summon ideas from 250 years ago, whilst improvising.
