When Keith Jarrett turned up at the venue for this gig in April 1975 - the first ever gig being put on by a 17 year-old German wannabe promoter, it seemed that it was doomed before it started. He was late, he needed feeding, the piano was horribly out of tune, but due to Jarrett being such a great musician, The Köln Concert just happens to be one of the greatest live jazz albums ever recorded.

This was meant to be heard without any barriers, without expectations, just as it was created. Even Keith can't control this concert. If you are thinking about liking or not liking it, whether you are being ordinary for liking what millions liked as well, or if you push yourself to agree with the bashers of Koln while listening to it, then you will never let it sink and see for yourself whats the real deal. My point stands firmly: this is one of those albums that are so good you also feel bad when you hear them, because you only stumble upon them once in a lifetime. It is that good.
