About the background music:
A modern masterpiece, July 12, 2005
By Marius Cipolla.
This is an absolutely luminous piece of music, living up to the name Jarrett gave it. Hard to believe anyone could think it dark. Like most serious modern music, it reflects the human condition in our age, and that means moments of tension and anguish. Indeed one could say that one of the great themes of Jarrett's music is the resolution of such anguish -- crossing the "personal mountains" in each human life.
But the overal experience of these pieces is of sublime beauty. Jan Garbarek is the perfect soloist for this sonata-like composition, an artist who produces one of the most beautiful sounds in modern jazz.
Luminessence isn't easy listening jazz. It might be better to approach it via the path of modern classical music than via any popular tradition. It is serious, heavenly music that needs to be respected. In return, it will reward the listener with intense pleasure.
