- 2014 – NEA Jazz Master Prize
Keith Jarrett's talent for playing both abstractly and lyrically, sometimes during the same song, continues to astound and delight audiences around the world. His ability to work in both the jazz and classical fields as both performer and composer demonstrates the breadth of his creativity. A master of many instruments, Jarrett also plays harpsichord, clavichord, organ, soprano saxophone, and drums. However, during the last 20 years, he has performed and recorded mainly on the acoustic piano.
- 2018 – Golden Lion La biennale di Venezia Lifetime Achievement
A pianist, improviser and composer, Keith Jarrett is one of the leading figures in contemporary music, thanks to the protean versatility of his career which over the decades has developed in various directions, apparently parallel yet indivisible, with many points of contact and intersections. Unanimously acclaimed as one of the most important pianists in the areas of improvisation and jazz (with the extraordinary landmark piano solo sets that brought him planetary fame in the 1970’s), Keith Jarrett is an artist who has shown extraordinary talent and creativity in his work across many musical genres, including the classical repertoire, composing scores that are sophisticated and incisive at the same time.

- 2005 – A Deep Joy Inside It: The Musical Aesthetics of Keith Jarrett
Keith Jarrett is an American pianist whose music and aesthetics stand out as dynamic, polarizing forces not only in jazz, but within the entire contemporary American musical world. The breadth of Jarrett's musical activities, crossing jazz, classical, and even "world music" boundaries, is unprecedented, yet his name is rarely mentioned outside of jazz. Aside from one biography and a handful of dissertations, academic writing dealing with Jarrett is scant. Jarrett's philosophical justifications for his music offer a rare example of a creative musician unafraid to grapple publicly with self-analysis.

- 1998 – Still Battling an illness
TWO years ago, Keith Jarrett found himself, as he put it, ''completely drained of energy'' midway through a concert tour of Italy. It wasn't one of the short-lived spells of exhaustion with which touring musicians are often afflicted, but something far more drastic. ''I don't know what fuel I was using to do those concerts,'' he recalled, ''but I felt as if aliens had entered my body, and that perhaps it would be the last time I'd be able to play. At the last concert, I actually played a dirge -- for myself.''

“I think it’s a mistake to ever look for hope outside of one’s self.” Arthur Miller put that line in the mouth of a character from After the Fall, which premiered on Broadway in 1964. It’s an argument worth reconsidering as we welcome a new album bearing the same title from Keith Jarrett, a pianist with rare perspective on both the merits of self-reliance and the grasping pursuit of hope.
