Always Let Me Go is a live album by American pianist Keith Jarrett's "Standards Trio" featuring Gary Peacock and Jack DeJohnette recorded in concert in April 2001 at the Bunkamura Orchard Hall and Tokyo Bunka Kaikan, in Japan and released on the ECM label in 2002.[1] It is the fourth album to feature mainly original improvised material by the trio following Changes (1983), Changeless (1987), and Inside Out (2000).


The Allmusic review by Glenn Swan awarded the album 4½ stars and states "After 20 years of working together, they trust each other (and the audience) enough to deliver over two hours of unscripted music... it adds a rewarding layer of understanding and appreciation, as few musicians can deliver such diamonds with so little structure in place. Song for song, the symbiosis is a marvel to behold — and the audience knows it. These are gods at play, and the lightning bolts they toss around are awe-inspiring".[2]
