Around the world


                             
- In January of 1983, Keith Jarrett returned to the trio format and his collaboration with bassist Gary Peacock and drummer Jack DeJohnette resulted in three albums. The performances, which usually do not swing in a conventional sense, do have a momentum of their own. Jarrett is generous in allocating solo space to Peacock and it is obvious that the three musicians were listening very closely to each other.

- Miles Davis releases his album Star People featuring Bill Evans, John Scofield and Marcus Miller.

- Wynton Marsalis makes musical history as the first artist to win simultaneous Grammy awards for a jazz album (Think of One) and a classical recording (Haydn’s Trumpet Concerto)

- Herbie Hancock’s synthesized dance hit “Rockit” from the album Future Shock, reaches number one in the pop charts.Like Marsalis, Hancock was a child prodigy who first revealed his skills to the world in the contest of classical music. He captivated listeners of pop music with such consummate ease in 1983 it scarcely seemed possible that two decades before he had been one of the most  challenging musicians working in the jazz mainstream. An earlier indicaton of his commercial viability came earlier with his album Headhunters, and his fluctuation between popular fusion hits and less remarkable acoustic jazz. In his jazz improvisation, he possesses a unique creative blend of jazz, blues, and modern classical music
