Album: Jan Garbarek, Egberto Gismonti, Charlie Haden, Magico – Carta de Amor (ECM)
Sunday 11 November 2012
More than 30 years after this short-lived trio's landmark albums Magico and Folk Songs, ECM has unearthed a live recording from a 1981 concert in Munich.
The Brazilian Gismonti, who can make the guitar sound like a piano and vice versa, remains the dominant voice but what grabs you is the empathetic interplay between all three. The second of two long CDs gets noodly, but the opening disc is amazing, with a stand-out version of Haden's "La Pasionaria".
