Great Albums of 2005

Radiance, Keith Jarrett(solo acoustic piano)

Day is Done, The Brad Mehldau Trio

The Ground, The Tord Gustavsen Trio

These three albums really stood out for me, all are quite monumental in their own way. Keith Jarrett's Radiance is a live recording of short, spontaneous improvisations in front of a Japanese audience. Brad Mehldau's Day is Done, is another album in Brad's oeuvre where the mixture of music is truly eclectic, enchanting and fiery. The Ground, the other trio album on this list is on the opposite end of the spectrum when compared with Brad's effort. But there is no need for comparison since they are both enjoyable.
