Book: Keith Jarrett

Chapter: Three Steps to Jazz: Art - Charles - Miles

DOI: 10.1558/equinox.41552


The hippy age and one of the most fascinating jazz groups reflecting the age with their
music: The Charles Lloyd Quartet. It was probably first through his intense and ground-
breaking performances with this group that Jarrett‘s larger career began. It led to his
relucatant decision to accept Miles Davis‘ invitation and join his band, a duty which would
require him to use an electric piano. After his period with Miles, he never played this
instrument again.
