Pianist Keith Jarrett is best known today for his dazzling solo performances, and for his world-beating Standards trio, but during the 1970s, the great US pianist led two very influential quartets, one in the US and one in Europe. Laykyly is a new project featuring some of the most talented musicians on the Irish jazz scene, paying tribute to the music of the great pianist's quartets. The name Laykyly is a reference to one of tunes Jarrett wrote for his European quartet, Long As You Know You’re Living Yours, which achieved notoriety when Steely Dan were forced to admit that they had copied it for the title track of their 1980 release Gaucho.
