Format: Audio CD
Garbarek fans have been spoiled in 2012 (says he shortly to see the great man live at the Royal Fesitval Hall) with the re-release of "Dansere" and "Sleeper" both of which I would include in my top discs of the year. The critical praise has been widespread with one august organ proclaiming that "Magico" might outstip the former and, indeed, anything else from ECM's archives this year.

It was against the backdrop of this (perhaps undue)expectation that I was slighlty underwhelmed on the first few listens, especially by the second disc. The sound is clean, clear and perfectly presented but, compared with the thrill of "Dansere" and "Sleeper" (or indeed much of Charlie Haden's own work, whether with Ornette Coleman or subsequently), Magico seemed beautiul, perfectly realised on its own terms but slightly too stately. Even the audience applause seemed muted.

But thrills there are, albeit not of the pyrotechnic variety. "Cego Aderaldo" features particularly compelling interplay from all three (with Gismonti's guitar playing more visceral and spiky than elsewhere) while the version of "La Pasionaria" is particularly, well, impassioned, even by the standards of the many other versions over the years.

In short, despite the imbalance between the two discs (meriting 4 1/2 and 3 1/2 stars respectively, overall this is a love letter full of magic

Having an interesting & rewarding discussion about different jazz cultures - European, American and Latin - this came along at just the right time. I've been a great fan of Jan Garbarek's contribution to jazz, and his capacity to work with musicians of all different cultures. The other musicians are also excellent performers in their respective fields and I had their "Folk Songs" CD for many years, which I love. This takes that CD a stage or two further and is a very rewarding listen, especially from the standpoint of different cultures contributing to a worthwhile and meaningful product, albeit in an historical context./

ECM has done a very useful "scraping the barrel" exercise in this case!

It seems thst ECM are going through a period of rediscovering thier past,the recent reissues of Rypdal,Garbarek and the imminent Eberhard Weber recordings area testament to the company's persuance of excellence.
This is an unissued concert from Munich in 1981,and shows tthe trio in sparkling form.
CD ONE(64.18)
1.....Carte de amor.....7.25...... A Gismonti original,this features a lovely solo by Garbarek,which sweeps and soars as only he can.
2.......La passionaria......16.26......Perhaps one of Charlie Hadens best known tunes,this version is stretched to sixteen minutes and features wonderful interplay between all three musicicians
3......Cego aderaldo.......9.50.....another original from Egberto,once again the playing on this is magnificent by all concerned,there is a slight feeling of Johm McClaughlins shakti to this track.
4......Folk song......8.08......the first song written by Garbarek,it is a flowing and fluid tune that suitd them well.
5......Don Quixote...8.25......great piano playing is the main feature on this track,
6......Spor......14.01......a more avant garde piece and.in consequence less tuneful piece that brings CD one to a close.

CD TWO(43.40)
1......Branquinho......7.37......the guitar intonations remind me somewhat of Ralph Towner,this is another fine example of Gismonti's composing taalent.
2.....All that is beautiful......15.35.....another fine Haaden composition,the fluidity of the instrumentation is absolutely breathtaking
3......Palhaco......9.12......Garbareks saxophone playing complements this Gismonti composed song well.
4......Two folk songs......3.39.....is precisly what it says on the tin.
5......Carta del amor,var......7.35.....a fitting finale fromthe pen of Egberto.
