Wolfgang Sandner [+]
University of Marburg
Wolfgang Sandner, born in 1942, studied musicology, modern history and Italian. For almost three decades, he has been active as music editor for the German newspaper, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung. He is professor at the University of Marburg, Germany and has penned portraits of such varied artists as Miles Davis, Heiner Goebbels and Arvo Pärt.
Jarrett‘s personality and how it effects the music and the listener. Jarrett is a human veto. In most cases, of course, he is, as such, not objectively wrong. Whether it is really wise, and therefore 'correct,' to put up such a constant front, even in some rhetorical dispute, is quite another question. But if Keith Jarrett were a yes-man, his art would be different and not nearly as alluring as it is.
