"Montreal Memories" is a duet album recorded at Theatre Port Royal on July 1, 1989, featuring two of the most talented jazz artists of any generation: alto saxophonist Frank Morgan; and pianist George Cables. This is the second duet album they've released, the first being Contemporary's "Double Image" in 1987.

With Morgan no longer alive (though George Cables is still performing both solo as well as with jazz super group The Cookers), this album may qualify as the final 2018 posthumous release, alongside music from such legendary artists as Erroll Garner, John Coltrane, Charles Mingus, Dexter Gordon, and Art Pepper. Some were middling, some were a bit disappointing, and some were valuable treasures. Not only does Montreal Memories fall into that final category, it is truly one of the "must hear" jazz albums of the year. -By PETER HOETJES (All About Jazz)
