Pat Metheny, Herbie Hancock, Dave Holland, Jack DeJohnette ‎– Live At The Academy Of Music – Philadelphia June 23rd 1990


New Sealed.

DeJohnette, Hancock, Holland, Metheny in Concert is a feature-length (98 minutes) release edited from two concerts given by the jazz superstar lineup of Jack DeJohnette, Herbie Hancock, Dave Holland, and Pat Metheny at the Mellon Jazz Festival held in the Academy of Music in Philadelphia on June 23, 1990. This was part of an outstanding world tour following drummer DeJohnette’s Parallel Realities album, though this program and the original album have only two cuts in common, “Indigo Dreamscapes” and “Nine over Reggae.” Hancock (piano and keyboards) and Metheny (guitar) were both on Parallel Realities, but here they contribute material from their own back catalog: Hancock a barnstorming 15-minute “Hurricane” and the closing “Cantaloupe Island,” Metheny the appropriately nocturnal and reflective “The Bat.” Bassist Dave Holland, who was the guest on the tour, wrote the longest cut, “Shadow Dance.” Here are four of the world’s finest modern jazz artists at the top of their game; virtuoso playing certainly, but also impeccable taste and artistry, seamless interaction, and inspired music-making. When combined with a transparent, gimmick-free visual style, which simply shows the musicians playing (concentrated on whoever is soloing), the result is an uplifting, exhilarating example of how well jazz can be presented.
