As soon as Pat Metheny burst onto the scene, there was no mistaking his sound. An ethereal timbre that put you in a trance and held you in its spell
With Pat Metheny's excellent debut, Bright Size Life, released in 1976, when he was only 21, it was evident that the guitarist was equally gifted at playing as he was penning compositions. Since then, he's gone on to become a major force in jazz guitar, releasing a number of stellar discs with the Pat Metheny Group (Travels, Offramp and Imaginary Day), as well as in the trio format and duets with Brad Mehldau and Jim Hall, who was a primary influence on Metheny. Along the way, he's won twenty Grammy Awards.
Here's the original recording with Jaco and Bob Moses.
