In the year between ECM releases Tokyo ’96 (1997) and Whisper Not (1999), Keith Jarrett’s iconic Standards Trio returned to live performances following a two-year break. Jarrett’s bout with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome left him physically and emotionally drained, but with the condition in check, his expressive passion and physical enthusiasm return in full force with After The Fall. The two-disc set was recorded at a concert in Newark, New Jersey in late 1998. The late ECM releases of Jarrett’s 1996 solo collection A Multitude of Angels (2016) and After The Fall with DeJohnette and Peacock are tributes to the extraordinary resilience of the pianist. His pre-sabbatical and return are both marked by a relentless determination to perform with his impeccable and unique approach to improvisation.
In recent years, pianist Keith Jarrett and ECM have collaborated in releasing varied, important recordings from his performance and private archives. After the Fall, recorded with his iconic "standards trio" with bassist Gary Peacock and drummer Jack DeJohnette, is another. Recorded at a concert in Newark, New Jersey in November 1998, it exists in the space between the group's Tokyo '96 (1997) and Whisper Not (1999). This performance marked Jarrett's return to the stage after a two-year battle with chronic fatigue syndrome. This particular concert was the first Jarrett performed since the 1996 Italian solo performances issued as A Multitude of Angels in 2016.

Keith Jarrett was reemerging in 1998 after a bout with illness. This live date from Newark, NJ, finds the pianist testing the waters with his longtime trio. It’s a document rich with promise, as he tackles John Coltrane’s labyrinthine Moment’s Notice for the first time on record, among other gems such as Paul Desmond’s ballad Late Lament and Pete La Roca’s midtempo blues One for Majid (from Art Farmer’s mid-’60s repertoire). There are rough spots, but they make it all the more poignant. After the Fall (Live) Keith Jarrett.
