Editorial Reviews

In Montreal, a concert recording from 1989, offers a live echo of the exquisitely balanced trio of Haden, Gismonti, and Garbarek who made the Magico and Folk Songs albums a couple of decades ago. It features two pieces from the repertoire of the trio--Gismonti's gently waltzing "Palhaco" (which comes dressed in quite a bit of the blues), and Haden's gravely beautiful "Silence." Both participants are in tremendous form. Gismonti, in particular, is nothing short of sensational. Whether on 10-string guitar or piano, instruments that he shifts between regularly, his lines are shot through with both a propulsive, cascading energy and a limpid, dynamically rich and wide-ranging lyricism: sample the opening "Salvador" and "Maracatu" for representative examples. Haden flows in and out of focus with typical sensitivity, contributing a variety of solos as distilled as they are questing. The whole constitutes one of the most enjoyable duet recordings heard for a long time, and leads to two thoughts: why on earth did this music take so long to see the light of day and will we ever hear a record featuring the entire Magico trio in a live setting? In the meantime, we can relish this rich and rare treasure from the past. --Michael Tucker

This CD was recorded live at the International Festival of Jazz in Montreal on, get this, July 6th 1989. A mere eleven years later, ECM records decided that it would release this to the public. Thanks guys, even if a little belated.
The CD features the duo of Egberto Gismonti and the sensational Charlie Haden. However, while Haden is given the top billing on the CD, perhaps because he is so well known to Jazz fans everywhere, it is really Gismonti that shines throughout. Listen to the brilliant playing on "Em Familia" to remove any doubts. Gismonti graces us with his presence on the 10 string classical guitar as well as the piano, playing both with seemingly ease. A good example of his piano prowness can be found on "Loro" and "Frevo". There is no doubt that after listening to this, you will seek out other Gismonti CD's. I already have my eye on "Solo". Haden, not to be overlooked, is consistent throughout and offers a nice balance to Gismonti.
In any event, the listener is treated to 78:55 minutes of a remarklably fresh sounding blend of classical and jazz music.
My only knock on the CD has to do with the sound quality and not the concert or the performers themselves. You will find that you have to crank the volume somewhat to fully hear and enjoy the experience. If you are playing this on a multi-disc you will need to have the remote ready and turn down the volume just prior to the next CD. As such, I deducted one star from this otherwise flawless performance.

...that is actually not so simple. The fact that there are only two musicians playing here, and that this is a live recording, with no overdubs, belies the complexity of the compositions. There's a lot going on here - Haden's reputation has been well-established, as has that of Gismonti, and they each live up to every bit of it in this performance. Gismonti's guitar work alone makes this disc worth the price - joined with Haden's stellar bass playing, the level of compositional achievement by both (Gismonti wrote or co-wrote seven of the nine tracks - Haden wrote the other two), the quality (crystalline, as always, from ECM) AND quantity (79 minutes) of the recording, it adds up to a disc that's hard to pass up.
I agree slightly with one or two of the reviewers below - those who prefer Gismonti's guitar pieces to those that feature the piano - but I would hardly dismiss the latter as `Keith Jarrett knockoff'. Simply because there are similarities to be heard - or even influences - doesn't mean that Egberto's work should be slighted as `derivative'. The echoes of his Brazilian roots can be heard throughout most of his work - he has taken that foundation and built upon it a strong, individual portfolio of his own creativity. It shines with the unique qualities of his soul, as the work of any true artist does. His guitar playing - on a specially designed 10-stringed instrument - never fails to make my jaw drop. I would swear at times that there is more than one guitarist playing - but I know from listening to Egberto's other recordings that this is not the case.
Even though Charlie Haden contributes only two compositions to this set, those two pieces are striking in their beauty and depth - his sense of melodic structure is breathtaking.

I long ago concluded that I am not reviewer material. For one, I can't stand in judgement of another musician's work when it is obvious that that musician has put his heart and soul out there for the world to see and hear! Therefore, I find that the only "reviews" I can write are the positive ones about music that I like or love. This fact makes my reviewer output one sided and probably not helpful to the reader looking for the good, bad, and ugly. So let me just say that Charlie Haden In Montreal Egberto Gismonti is a killer cd (I still buy my music in cd form). At times the music is quiet and reflective, at others majestic and technically astounding. At no time does the music reflect technique for technique's sake but throughout the musicianship on display is at the forefront of the audience awareness. This is a live cd and we, the listeners, are in the audience for this performance thanks to the impeccable engineering and production of ECM 's Daniel Vachon and Manfred Eicher. Recorded live in 1989 and released in 2001, the music is timeless. I heartily recommend this cd to anyone who is simply a fan of great music. The tone is classical. The melodies are easy to entreat. The virtuosity never detracts from the value of the music. Dynamics are utilized skillfully, taking the listener on a pleasurable journey that, when it's over, leaves one satisfied and centered. From where I sit, I don't see bad and ugly....only good on this one. Enjoy this concert worthy of being carried on the sterling ECM label! It's a goody!

Instantly became one of my top jazz albums. The Allmusic review by David R. Adler awarded the album 3 stars stating "Bassist Charlie Haden has done a tremendous amount of playing in duo contexts. This live recording with the remarkable pianist/guitarist Egberto Gismonti is a fine addition to his duo resumé". I give it 5 stars: this is a remarkably beautiful recording and Gismondi's guitar and piano are tours de force. "Recorded at the Festival International de Jazz de Montréal on July 6, 1989" Wish I'd been there...
