    Here they are again, the two of them, often partners before, playing mostly love songs--and all GREAT songs--and making them sound both classic and new, both simple and profound, simultaneously dangerous and comforting and revelatory.

    Jarrett's piano and Haden's bass take an affectionate, inquisitive tour through a set of jazz classics and old ballads, revealing fresh beauties at every turn.

    More important, the intimate atmosphere and the effortless rapport between Jarrett’s radiant chords and Haden’s eloquently simple bass lines remain.

    Last Dance is by no means a dolorous album, resounding as it does with empathy and melodic accord. There isn’t a solo as outright stunning as Mr. Jarrett’s on “Body and Soul,” from “Jasmine,” but there may be more brilliant flourishes of duologue.

    It's just as good as Jasmine, and hopefully not a Last Dance for this partnership.
  6. Listened to sympathetically, as soppy late-night jazz, it’s fine. Just don’t expect sparks to fly.

    Last Dance is a necessary addendum to Jasmine; it fleshes out the confident, mature, amiable, and eloquent speech in the canonical language these two jazz masters share.
