  • According to Keith Jarrett's ultimately uplifting liner notes, this live recording is one that very nearly did not happen. Apparently, it does not typically rain much or often in July on France's Cote d'Azur. However, in 2002, the sun did not shine for several days running there and the (outdoor) Festival de Jazz d'Antibes, not being accustomed to the uncooperative heavens, did not have a backup performance venue. On top of all of this, the members of this nearly legendary trio were all more or less recuperating from various illnesses, and feeling all the glummer for the rain. After an epiphany over an espresso backstage (read: the rainy, windswept beach), Jarrett convinced his colleagues that more or less, the show must go on. Besides he lobbied, "We need the therapy. We need the music."
  • Playing beneath plastic drop cloths on stage with little drips coming in here and there, the trio proceeded to play an inspired set of music, making it clear that the listeners, too, "need [this] music." Jarrett, Gary Peacock and Jack DeJohnette have been playing together for 20 years now and the fortuitous, compounded result is a trio that delivers on an exceptionally high level. To wit, Jarrett's solo on Oliver Nelson's "Butch & Butch" was nominated for a Grammy. Fans can be grateful that Jarrett's trio, in spite of the weather and their health, were and usually are, UP FOR IT, which is, incidentally, the title of the album's hoe-down closer.
