Pat Metheny – Rarum IX: Selected Recordings

Containing tunes Metheny selected himself, this compilation marked his departure from ECM for Geffen. It may seem short, at 9 tracks, but even that is still 72 minutes total. And it’s still more than enough to whet the appetite. Call it a hits set, hell, call it what you want, but this is a beautiful collection of early Metheny. Oh baby.

    The rarum series, like the Works series that came before it, are brilliantly curated intros to the ECM catalogue. If you don’t have the John Surman one and ever see it, grab it Aaron!
