Product Description:

Personnel: Charlie Haden (acoustic bass); Egberto Gismonti (piano, guitar).
Recorded at the Montreal Jazz Festival, Montreal, Canada on July 6, 1989.
Personnel: Egberto Gismonti (guitar, piano); Charlie Haden (double bass).
Recording information: Festival International De Jazz De Montreal (07/06/1989).
Editor: Denis Leclerc.
In 1989 the Montreal Jazz Festival presented Charlie Haden in a series of eight completely different concerts. A number of these have already appeared on CD as volumes in the MONTREAL TAPES series. This concert presented him in a series of duets with Brazil's Egberto Gismonti, who plays primarily guitar and also some piano. The bulk of the pieces are by Gismonti and have a folkish bearing, rich with the rhythmic and harmonic characteristics of the guitarist's homeland.
Haden's "First Song" has been recast in numerous settings (among the most unforgettable is a version by Abbey Lincoln), and here again its simple beauty wields tremendous emotional power. As befits the tradition of the ECM label, this album is clean-sounding and warmly recorded, with every quiet note captured in perfect detail. The intimacy of the two musicians' interplay makes one forget that this was a performance before a large audience (who were roused to thunderous applause at the conclusion of each number).
