Pat Metheny Group – The Way Up

This album won a Grammy for Best Contemporary Album in 2005. It’s all one track, though on my CD copy it’s split into four tracks (titled Opening, then Track One, Track Two and Track Three) for navigation purposes. Do you like Pat Metheny Group, with Lyle Mays on keys? Do you like jazzy improvisation and solos? Do you like brilliant musicianship on an untouchable level? Do you like to just drift away on an album and let it carry you for 67:27? You need this beauty!

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.
