The Open Air Meeting is a live album by Muhal Richard Abrams and Marty Ehrlich which was released on the New World label in 1997 and features duet performances by Abrams and Erlich recorded in August 1996 at the Brooklyn Museum.


The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow states "The two musicians listen closely to each other and react quickly to any ideas that the other might have. Abrams' strong technique and knowledge of other styles and Ehrlich's versatile playing prove to be a stimulating match".[2]
