Recorded in 1986 but released for the first time, this double CD presents Jarrett the multi-instrumentalist. On it, he plays not only piano but various guitars (including bass), tabla, recorder, drums and assorted percussion. Oddly enough, the effect is nothing like as varied and surprising as his great solo piano performances, such as the Köln Concert. But as a series of overdubbed improvisations with, he claims, "no forethought or composition", it's quite amazing. How did he manage to keep all those moving parts in his head? More a curiosity than a masterpiece, but a real prize for Jarrett completists.
