1981 80/81

Label: ECM

Musicians: Pat Metheny, Charlie Haden, Jack DeJohnette, Dewey Redman, Mike Brecker

This recording is in my top ten of “must have” music. It is sublime on all levels. From the beautiful, emotive guitar-work of Pat Metheny, to the essential bass of Charlie Haden and tenor sax of Dewey Redman and Michael Brecker. And perhaps the highlight of the recording is the intricate yet effortless drumming of Jack DeJohnette. It stands out throughout the recordings, even prompting one of the artists to exclaim at the tail-end of the recording session of one of their songs, “Whooooieee, man, Jack DeJohnette!” You will treasure this album forever! —CD Universe
