Tokyo, Japan, 2002


Pianist and composer Keith Jarrett was born on May 8, 1945 in Allentown, Pennsylvania.

Recognized as a musical prodigy, he appeared at age five on a televised talent program hosted by swing bandleader Paul Whiteman.

Trained as a classical pianist, Jarrett developed an interest in jazz as a teenager. Art Blakey hired him for the Jazz Messengers which led to joining the Charles Lloyd Quartet and a place in the Miles Davis band.

A 1910 composition by Frederick Weatherly, "Danny Boy" has since become a classic of Irish folk music. Its newer words written by an Englishman, the original melody, “Londonberry Air,” dates back probably to as early as the late 18th century. Londonberry Air originated in Northern Ireland and is now played as the country's victory anthem at the Commonwealth Games.
