Charlie Haden sessions in Montréal without Pat Metheny ? The Festival's beacon light ? Unthinkable ! Especially when one considers how many times the two have crossed musical paths. Especially when one takes into account Metheny's long relationship with the Festival since day one ! In 1984, during the 5th edition of the Festival, this guitar virtuoso enthralled audiences at Club Soda for five very special evenings, accompanied by ... Charlie Haden and drummer Jack DeJohnette ! This same trio also recorded the Pat Metheny album "Rejoicing", in 1983. Pat Metheny's admiration for his old crony is limitless, and he even made a surprise guest appearance last year at the Spectrum during the performance of Haden's Quartet West. Haden, Metheny, and DeJohnette make quite a team!
