We get it, Keith Jarrett is great

Keith Jarrett came on my Pandora this morning and as usual I loved his playing. The song ended – I think it was a Gerry Mulligan tune – and it must have been the last song of the concert because the audience went crazy, clapping whistling, who knows, maybe they even took off their clothes a la Woodstock.
That’s fine — the delicate genius earned his applause. For some reason, however, the producer, Manfred Eicher, left the entire minute and a half standing ovation on the recording. Hey Manfred, we already know he’s great, all you’re doing is making us hate him even more.
