I am not being mean when I say most modern jazz groups are like fast food, They give you a good tune that makes you move and tickels your music bone, BUT with that being said along comes Pat Metheny Group and you are taken on a journey of EPIC and the window that you are looking through will never be the same. You are never cocern with the destinition because you become apart of the journey and you never care where they take you. When Pat and Lyle are in the driver seat you know that the journey will be one that fills your soul to a level that you never thought it could come to. From; As Fall Witicha so falls Withica Falls to The Way up you feel that they are True Space and there is no limits.

"The Way up" is one of the best albums I've bought this year. It's unique, colorful, and full of rhythem. Each part has its own feel to it, and yet everything ties together in the end. If you haven't bought it, please go get it.

Without a doubt one of the best albums I've ever heard. Of course, I have a slight bias because I went to a concert during the Way Up tour and was mesmerized to say the least, but the album is still outstanding. It is not like Pat Metheny's solo albums; the number of instruments played (or at least the number I saw in concert) was around 100, as opposed to the usual 3. This is one of the most inspirational scores I've ever heard.

This CD is one of the most unbelieveable works of art I have ever heard. PMG crosses so many spectrums of jazz, it's just incredible. This CD is a must have for any jazz fan.
