Keith Jarrett‘s financial difficulties and a lack of perpetuum in the field of solo piano improvisations lead him straight into a psychological and financial crisis. Personal decisions of enormous importance are made and Jarrett remarries. He also attempts to re- find himself in musical projects such as the 'Spirits' recording.
