Down Beat - 7/93, p.403.5 Stars - Good Plus - "...The Jarrett purists will be shocked if they haven't heard it before, what with Keith's funky wah-wahs and apparent ease at zig-zagging between keyboards and flute...definitely experimental, showing sides to both musicians we don't really see anymore..."

Personnel: Keith Jarrett (flute, piano, electric piano, organ); Jack DeJohnette (drums, percussion).
Recorded at Sunset Studios, Los Angeles, California.
1973's RUTA AND DAITYA is an often-overlooked title. Keith Jarrett and Jack DeJohnette created this set of seven pieces in a largely improvised context. These were Jarrett's last explorations with electric keyboards (he'd recently come off a stint with Miles Davis, playing electric piano), but though he was soon to become a staunch pro-acoustic advocate, his work here is inventive and bracing.
While not all electric (Jarrett plays standard piano, as well as bamboo flute), there's a wonderful funkiness to be heard. Elsewhere--such as on the title track--the gospel inclinations that would be a core element in his later pieces can be heard. DeJohnette's broad percussion palette foreshadows his own future work, which drew upon varied world musics. This set is varied and delightful--a hidden chapter in both men's discographies.
