Forty years later. Pat Metheny’s “80/81”

Recorded exactly forty years ago, between May 26 and May 30, 1980, Pat Metheny’s album “80/81” stands out as a very inspired and enduring example of collective creativity. The music was burning from the first note…
The quintet assembled for the recording featured 25-year-old Pat Metheny (guitar) and some of his favourite musicians: Michael Brecker and Dewey Redman (tenor saxophone), Charlie Haden (double bass) and Jack DeJohnette (drums).
For me, it is one of the most memorable sessions we have recorded and mixed in Oslo’s Talent Studio with recording engineer Jan Erik Kongshaug.

Listen to it!
