My Song

My Song is an album by jazz musician Keith Jarrett which was released on the ECM label in 1978. It is the second album by Jarrett's 'European Quartet' featuring Jan Garbarek, Palle Danielsson and Jon Christensen (Belonging, of 1974, was the first).


The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow awarded the album 4.5 stars stating "Due to the popularity of the haunting "My Song," this album is the best known of the Jarrett-Garbarek collaborations and it actually is their most rewarding meeting on record. Jarrett contributed all six compositions and the results are relaxed and introspective yet full of inner tension.".[1]
