Pat Metheny Groupby Pat Metheny Group
The first recording by the Pat Metheny Group features the innovative guitarist along with keyboardist Lyle Mays, bassist Mark Egan, and drummer Dan Gottlieb. The music is quite distinctive, floating rather than swinging, electric but not rockish, and full of folkish melodies. The best known of these six Metheny-Mays originals are "Phase Dance" and "Jaco." This music grows in interest with each listen.

This album is definitive Pat Metheny, joyous, ethereal, melodic. While his other CDs have some excellent tracks, this is the first and the only one where every track is perfect. Its beauty is unparalleled. Excellent driving music, when one is alone and contemplating the beauty of life.
