Very exciting to hear. I preordered my CD as soon as it was possible. But I’ve actually been worried that there was
no way this recording could live up to my craving for a new "group" CD (even if it’s a different group
configuration). His group stuff is what I love most of Pat’s work. It’s my favorite music on this planet and has been
since the early 1980s. But it’s been a long time since "The Way Up" and I worried that it would never have that
wonderful "thing" that all his PMG albums have had. The samples have dispelled my fear. He has found a way to
move forward while retaining continuity with the past. Win/win for artist and audience. I love trio improv
and the rest, and listen to a lot of jazz. But as far as Pat Metheny is concerned, I just have a deep need for that bigger
band, carefully composed, beautifully melodic thing.
I worried about how sax would change the flavor (sax, for some reason, has never quite been my favorite
instrument). But I think I’m going to love this new venture and--as always grow with it in my taste and musical
sensibilities. God bless Pat Metheny and the inspired musicians surrounding him.

There are many surprises on the CD and every fan should have it in their collection. I got my copy at the art reception
on Thursday. Seeing the
show at the Keswick. The entire recording is great and I suggest ordering it.
