In 1989, the Montreal Jazz Festival celebrated the achievements of bassist Charlie Haden in a series of special concerts. Arguably the most exceptional performance in the series - and certainly the one that took Haden furthest from strict definitions of "jazz" - was his concert with Brazilian guitarist-pianist Gismonti, released now for the first time on the label that has been Egberto's home for more than a quarter-century: ECM. "First there were the soft silences, then the bright tropical colours, and when their concert peaked, it became a dancing, joyous celebration of life" - Montreal Gazette. "In Montreal" is an historic concert recording, and its release on ECM a major event.
