Today NY Times released an interview with Keith Jarrett, sadly confirming voices around his illness.

“But this month Mr. Jarrett, 75, broke the silence, plainly stating what happened to him: a stroke in late February 2018, followed by another one that May. It is unlikely he will ever perform in public again.”

So it seems the Carnegie Hall concert venue in 2018 will be the last live performance for mr Jarrett. It seems his left hands is no longer able to play the piano and he also suffers from occasional lapses in memory. It’s really shocking to read this interview especially when he says:

“I don’t know what my future is supposed to be,” he added. “I don’t feel right now like I’m a pianist. That’s all I can say about that.”

Here you can read the original article from New York Times.
