Editorial Reviews

A fascinating set from three strong and contrasting musical personalities: Norwegian saxophonist, Brazilian guitarist-pianist, and US bassist making purposeful and creative music together on this previously unreleased live recording. Carta de Amor documents music captured at Munichs Amerika Haus in April, 1981. Two years on from the much-loved albums Magico and Folk Songs, the trios improvisational empathy and sensibilities were further honed by experiences as a touring group. Repertoire includes five pieces from Gismontis pen, with the title track heard in two variations, opening and closing this enthralling double album. Also heard here are Garbareks folk song arrangements and an extended, freewheeling version of his composition Spor. Charlie Haden brings in La Pasionaria, from the repertoire of the Liberation Music Orchestra and All That Is Beautiful, not previously documented on disc. Recorded by Manfred Eicher and Martin Wieland in 1981, mixed from original analog tapes by Eicher and Jan Erik Kongshaug in 24 bit/96 kHz in 2012.

For the uninitiated, there are no words to describe the majesty and chemistry of this trio. For those like myself, who who have lived for three decades with those two desert island discs, Magico and Folk Songs, this is an unexpected bonanza. It has all the qualities of those two classic discs, the extraordinary simpatico, the breathing as one, deep listening, space, the understated tenderness, all of it and something more: It has the feeling of a group that has been playing together, touring, getting to know one another and exploring the material, going in even deeper than the studio recordings. It's a profound, dynamic and virtuosic performance with moments of great intensity, but for the most part it is contemplative and searching, redolent of the inarticulate longings of the heart.

The album starts off with the title track, the austere and brooding ballad, Carta de Amor, a haunting, emotionally searching love letter which sets the mood for what is to follow. There are several pieces from the two aforementioned studio albums, including Garbarek's arrangements, Folk song and Two Folk Songs, which are treated much like the album versions, expressing an understated grandeur. However, the live version of his composition Spor is wild and edgy, culminating in a long modal jungle trip down the Amazon River, replete with berimbau like drones from Gismonti's guitar and Haden's bass and monkey cries from Garbarek's soprano sax. It is a beautiful thing to hear. One of my favorite Gismonti ballads, Palhaco is a vehicle for Gismonti's marvelous piano inventions, diverging from the sedate approach of the album version, favoring a much more rhythmic approach that adds a surprisingly muscular energy to this otherwise tender ballad.

Fabulous music by superb trio,

I have known and have much of the music of Jan Garbarek and Charlie Haden but Egberto is new to me. No More! Great stuff!

Wonderful recording from 3 great musicians. Except for applause, does not sound like a live recording but a good in studio. Mush have great mics and recording equipment. Mostly Gismonti songs and he plays mostly guitar and some piano. Garbarek plays tenor and soprano sax. Some of the songs are quite long and most of the music is kind of a collective conversation between the three players. I will listen to this many times. I got it as a download for only about $14 and I am listening to it now on my IPAD. mp3s sound fine to me and close to CD quality.
