Pat Metheny 80/81 on 180g 2LP

Long considered one of the essential Pat Metheny recordings – not to mention an important part of any music collection – 80/81 continues to hold its stance as a pivotal recording for composition, artistry, and improvisation. Produced for the ECM label by Manfred Eicher, Metheny performs here in a pair of extraordinary quartet configurations with the likes of bassist Charlie Haden, drummer Jack DeJohnette and alternating tenor saxophonists Dewey Redman and Mike Brecker.

"I just loved all four of them [Charlie Haden, Jack DeJohnette, Michael Brecker, and Dewey Redman]. They were kind of all my favorites in a way. And that was what got me writing the music for that record...was just hearing their sounds in my head. Recording 80/81 “was just an unbelievable experience...a really magical recording session that, for at least a couple of us, was life-changing. I know that Mike Brecker always talked about that record as for him, there was ‘everything before 80/81 and there was everything after 80/81.” - Pat Metheny
