Album Review

When Metheny celebrates his cerebral side, he usually follows up with something more accessible. After his difficult yet rewarding collaboration with John Scofield, I Can See Your House from Here, Metheny stresses accessibility with this captivating live album. The primary focus is on his Brazilian-influenced material from Still Life (Talking) and Letter from Home, and the very cohesive Pat Metheny Group offers characteristically expressive versions of such favorites as "Have You Heard," "Beat 70," and "Better Days Ahead." While he could have offered a wider variety of material and perhaps revisited some of his early gems, everything that he does include comes across as honest and heartfelt. Thankfully, Metheny's emphasis on accessibility and crowd-pleasing doesn't come at the expense of his artistic integrity.

Customer Reviews

No new material?

This project represents the best of PMG live in their 80'-90's era. Unquestionably, a must-have for PMG fans... most notably there is the "new" song "Half Life of Absolution" which is not on any other PMG recordings. This is one of my favorite PMG tunes of all time... a 15 minute epic in scope and grandeur. Absolutely beautiful. For those who say there is no new material on this project, you aren't listening!

The Best Songs With Added Emotion

This album takes the work of an already amazing group, and adds a level of emotion which takes every track over the top. Last Train Home is very special to me, and this live version is executed with perfection. Every track is worth a listen.

This album is fantastic.

I personally love this album. It may even be my favorite Pat Metheny album. I've seen Pat live and he is incredible to watch. I highly reccomend getting your hands on this material, whether you buy it on iTunes or elsewhere

One of the most original guitarists from the '80s onward (he is instantly recognizable), Pat Metheny is a chance-taking player who has gained great popularity but also taken some wild left turns. His records with the Pat Metheny Group are difficult to describe (folk-jazz? mood music?) but manage to be both accessible and original, stretching the boundaries of jazz...
