Here is a reflection on free jazz pioneer Ornette Coleman and his wonderful 1985 encounter with Pat Metheny, ‘Song X.”

When Pat Metheny and Lyle Mays’ ‘As Falls Wichita, So Falls Wichita Falls’ arrived in May 1981, it sounded like nothing else in my record collection.
Here is a review of Jimmy Greene’s ‘Beautiful Life,’ a hopeful and very personal message sprung from the unspeakable tragedy of Sandy Hook.
Some think Metheny is joking around, that he couldn’t possibly like “all of this noise.”
Metheny’s ultimate road trip song, this one always makes me feel like I’ve just escaped something.
Each song on ‘Offramp’ is so different from the next, and yet it all hangs together.
This song has become The Anthem at live shows.
I had a guitar player friend who, when the topic of Pat Metheny came up, would say that he bought a copy of Offramp when it first came out, but didn’t like it all that much because he could never figure out when Metheny was playing the guitar.
“Estupenda Graca” is a rare entry in the Metheny catalog in that the title, Portuguese for “Stupendous Grace,” actually matches the mood of the song.
So we were standing around the Something Else! water cooler the other day, getting a lot of laughs from an absolutely ridiculous article we’d read about guitar players.
