Somewhere is not just some CD put together by a super group to cash in on the latest trend. Keith Jarrett, Gary Peacock and Jack DeJohnette have a long history together. They first got together as a trio and played on Gary Peacock's Tales of Another (1977) and have since recorded numerous times together. Jarrett and DeJohnette go back even further, playing in Charles Lloyd's group from 1965 - 68 and with Miles Davis from 1970-71. Jarrett, Peacock, and DeJohnette have all established themselves outside of this trio as both individual performers and as players with other artists.

DeJohnette describes the foundation of the group. "ECM founder Manfred Eicher suggested a trio record with us, since we all played with Miles. We each have a wealth of experience in a broad spectrum with the great players that we bring to the music, plus our own personal stamps of creativity. It's always fresh. There's a high level of trust, we're in search of the music and we follow where it takes us. That's been consistent, and as long as that happens, we'll continue to do it." Their initial recordings were collected on Standard, Vol. 1 (1983), Changes (1984), Standards, Vol. 2 (1985) and Setting Standards: New York Sessions (2008). Their last few releases, The Out-of-Towners (2004), My Foolish Heart (2007), and Yesterdays (2009) were all recorded in 2001. Although Somewhere was recorded in 2009, it is their first new release in thirteen years.

Somewhere showcases some of the greatest writers of our time including Bernstein, Sondheim, Arlen, and Van Heusen, among others. …
