Description: SLEEPER is an astonishing double-album documentation of a great band at the peak of its powers, Sleeper features a complete and previously unreleased concert recording of Jarrett’s ‘European Quartet’, otherwise known as Belonging, at Tokyo’s Nakano Sun Plaza in April 1979. The pieces played are all composed by Jarrett and exceptional improvisational exchanges, dynamic episodes of surging energy, and lyrical passages of wild beauty abound. The interplay between Jarrett and Garbarek is uncanny and the Danielsson/Christensen rhythm team swings wildly and delightfully. After more than three decades in the ECM archive, this “Sleeper”, newly mixed in Oslo in 96 kHz/24 bit, now awakes in all its glory sounding thoroughly alive and of the moment.
