Keith Jarrett at the Blue Note is a 6-CD box set live album by Keith Jarrett's Standards Trio recorded at the Blue Note Jazz Club in New York City in 1994 and released on the ECM label.



The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow awarded the set 5 stars, stating: "Never mind that this same group has already had ten separate releases since 1983; this box is still well worth getting.... Throughout the three nights at the Blue Note, the interplay among the musicians is consistently outstanding. Those listeners concerned about Jarrett's tendency to 'sing along' with his piano have little to fear for, other than occasional shouts and sighs, he wisely lets his piano do the talking." New York Times' journalist Jon Pareles attended a set on June 3 recalling the "three-night engagement was Mr. Jarrett's first New York club date in 11 years, and for it he turned the club into a miniature concert hall; smoking was prohibited, and no food or drinks were served during the set". He compared Jarrett's approach with the one of Bill Evans' and continued he "is a master of playing gently, and he refuses to push. Often, he would let a line grow softer as it climbed, creating quiet peaks. The music whispered and glimmered, seeking a pure, incorporeal song". In 1996 the box set was awarded with "Album of The Year" in the Critics Poll by Jazz magazine Down Beat.
