Charlie Haden, Jan Garbarek & Egberto Gismonti - Folk Songs (1981)

Format: flac + cue + log
Genre: Free Jazz, Fusion, Avantgarde, Contemporary Jazz
Release Date: 1981
Label: ECM Records

One of the better ECM recordings, this collaboration by bassist Charlie Haden, Jan Garbarek on tenor and soprano, and Egberto Gismonti (switching between guitar and piano) is filled with moody originals, improvisations that blend together jazz and world music, and atmospheric ensembles. This date works well both as superior background music and for close listening.
