Recording information: Festival International De Jazz De Montreal, Montreal, Q (07/08/1989).
In 1989, the Montreal Jazz Festival presented eight consecutive nights of Charlie Haden and his music. Each concert featured Haden in a different musical setting. The closing night of the performance run was the source of this release. The 12-piece ensemble featured here followed in the tradition of Haden's landmark 1970 album, LIBERATION MUSIC ORCHESTRA, with Spanish-tinged pieces rich with humanitarian passions. Haden's three originals (including the gorgeously moving "Silence" and "Sandino") are joined by a reprise of the earlier album's "We Shall Overcome." Here, that closing number is allowed to ebb and flow for over 37 minutes, allowing ample room for the host of stunning soloists on board (including saxophonists Ernie Watts and Ken McIntyre, guitarist Mick Goodrick and pianist Geri Allen). MONTREAL TAPES has all the sonic warmth of a studio recording with the added edge of musicians performing before a rapt audience.
