This fits with the other subject but deserves one alone as well. For those who don’t know, Estrella Morente is the most important flamenco singer in many years. Her father was Enrique Morente. She has presented on her new record Pat’s "Find me in your dreams" with lyrics by her late father. This is one of the greatest performances of any Metheny composition. Accompanied by Pat playing all the instruments. Metheny is the greatest composer of his and following generations and she may be the greatest singer. It is pure magic.

Bookmark and Share Pat actually performed this song live at the wonderful Palau de Musica in Barcelona with Enrique during 2008. Pat played trio with Antonio Sanchez & Christian McBride and then also appeared with Enrique’s group. They also performed the two tunes they collaborated on from Suena la Alhambra project. A truly magical evening**********

Bookmark and Share Thanks for sharing! I totally agree with you that this is one of the greatest performances of any Metheny composition. Absolutely beautiful! For this reason I have added it to the subject ’Vocalese’ versions of Pat Metheny songs. I suppose you don’t mind...

Bookmark and Share Indeed a lovely version of this particular tune, with Pat playing in a nostalgic mood. I don’t understand Spanish but I gather this is a tribute to Enrique. Quite heartfelt. The rest is different but equally attractive if you like flamenco. This track however stands out.

Bookmark and Share sounds like a maybe must have for Pat completists. How would you describe the rest of the album ?
