1980 American Garage

Label: ECM

Musicians: Pat Metheny, Lyle Mays, Mark Egan, Dan Gottlieb

When I received a copy of this album to review, I was floored by the creative writing and playing. Now, Many years later I decided to replace my vinyl copy with the digital cousin. This collection still breathes the creative genius that the LP exuded years ago. Listen to the dynamics and the melodic stories that Pat Metheny and Lyle Mays wrote for American Garage and you will have a good idea of many of the works that came later on. The title song is a rockin’ tribute to the 60’s bands that cut their teeth playing “Purple Haze” and “Light My Fire.” The final word on this album is that it is a must to have for anybody who thinks that jazz can’t rock! —Amazon.com
