Pat goes into detail about his relationship with Ornette Coleman and Ornette's music in this first episode. He talks about the Song X recording session and how it all kind of came together. Really well done podcast with dynamic album artwork that changes with what he is talking about. I can't wait for more, especially considering the lack of content at the PMGLN site for the past several years.
From the master himself
I have loved Metheny and The Group all my life. This Podcast is a really good, intimate look at what's behind the albums and Metheny's music. On all Podcasts you hear Metheny talking about the albums, his experiences, where everything came from, with the album's music playing in the background. Excellent!
A glimpse into the incredible world of Pat Metheny
Pat Metheny is a musician who wants to share his enthusiasm for his work. To that end, he offers special insight into the genesis of many of his important works. His comments are interesting, intelligent and never venture into overly technical areas which might alienate some listeners. The only drawback is the lack of comments from long time collaborator Lyle Mays. One can only hope that in subsequent podcasts, Mays may add some of his comments as well.
