We gave it a B+

Soon after Miles Davis died in 1991, Keith Jarrett’s trio — one of the finest piano outfits on the jazz scene — went into the studio to pay tribute to the man. The point of departure is the Miles of late-’50s/early-’60s vintage, before he had sharply broken ranks with jazz tradition, and with Bye Bye Blackbird the trio dishes up a mostly musky rather than mournful late-night reverie for a departed master. B+
