Turning 70 Today

Not only is it one of my major yearly observances, #PynchonInPublic Day, for which I'm re-reading Gravity's Rainbow on the MetroNorth train to and from work in honor of Thomas Pynchon's 78th birthday, but it's the 70th anniversary of VE Day -- May 8, 1945 -- the day on which Keith Jarrett was born in Allentown, Pennsylvania. I'll listen toThe Köln Concert to celebrate later tonight, but here he is with Gary Peacock and Jack DeJohnette playing "Autumn Leaves."

Happy Birthday Keith!
