Called one of the greatest improvisers in the history of jazz, Jarrett was famous for his wildly passionate solo recitals. Beginning in 1996 and continuing for about four years, he stopped performing and recording because of chronic fatigue syndrome. He is now recovered. His new album Radiance is his solo improvised concert. This interview was originally broadcast on Sept. 11, 2000.
