This subtle, sublime collaboration finds bassist Charlie Haden and guitarist Pat Metheny crafting bejewelled chamber duets that transcend genre. With their shared Missouri lineage as a thematic touchstone, Haden and Metheny forge a lyrical, mostly acoustic style at once intimate and expansive. Both pare their playing to a Zen-like economy, focusing on a purity of tone, clarity of harmony, and counterpoint to achieve a tender lyricism.

Metheny's acoustic steel-string and classical guitars predominate, but he also applies discreet overdubs (including some delicate synthesizer and keyboard textures) to sculpt orchestral detail. Haden, as always, is both a generous foil and a deft melodist on his own, moving easily into his instrument's upper register as he twines through Metheny's lines. The set's emotional coherence is particularly satisfying in light of the material, which spans Ennio Morricone ("Cinema Paradiso"), Henry Mancini ("Two for the Road"), Jim Webb ("The Moon is a Harsh Mistress"), and Roy Acuff ("The Precious Jewel") as well as affecting originals by both leaders. And giving the project a sense of closure, while commenting obliquely on the generational dialogue it represents, is the luminous "Spiritual" (composed by Haden's son, Josh), an instrumental prayer that exemplifies the balance of concision and deep emotion at the heart of this exquisite triumph. --Sam Sutherland

A must for every CD collection. For those unfamiliar with Metheny or who have only heard his Group's recordings, these 'short stories' show just how thoughtful a musician he is (if ever that were in doubt). The lyricism in his playing here is remarkable, complemented nicely by Haden (who is a decent composer in his own right.) The only weak track, in my opinion, is Tears of Rain, which is spoiled by an obnoxious sitar guitar. But this is a minor aberration: The rest is beautiful - warm, cavernous, and sensitively crafted. Warrants many listens.

I sat with brother, who was in hospital dying of oesophageal cancer, and we listened to this all the way through. He was understandably anxious and this relaxed him to the point that he fell asleep. He never did wake up but I know the the sheer quality of the musicianship and the subtle and relaxing overall feel of the album made his final hours much more bearable. I recommend it thoroughly as a wonderful example of non-fusion Metheny.

Pat Metheny fans will love this album. While there's a classic Metheny feel, with songs that harken to his early days, the music goes much further with Hayden's sometimes dark and airy bass. This is "non-fusion" Metheny at his best.
For those is search of a great mood-setting evening with the woman in your life, light the fire and open a bottle of wine... enjoy.

Metheny and Charlie Haden have been friend decades before the release of this project, which is actually their first duet album together. Since both of them are from some Missouri small towns, which explains the title of the album, they are most probably sharing quite similar warm feelings about their childhood, which you can feel when listening to the album. Metheny is impeccable and brings up completely acoustic guitar sound, Haden, of course, also plays in a perfect manner and the result is one great and deeply lyrical album.
In brief, If you are enjoying the lyrical, deep and a bit nostalgic sound that makes you dive deep into the blue, you will find this album to be a great acquisition for you

This is a classic Metheny production. It sounds very 'open', folksy even, but there is an understated sophistication at work here that underpins the whole project. A guitar /bass duet album may not sound a 'must buy' idea but that would be to underestimate the quality of playing, arrangement and tune selection on display here. Fans of Metheny will know how he can create beautiful textures with acoustic guitars, his rhythm parts providing a sprightly support for his oh -so fluid solo excursions and that's just what he does to brilliant effect on this album. Haden provides inspired support on bass- knowing when to keep it simple but always ready to flesh things out when necessary. He and Metheny should get together more often!

So if you are looking for an album that combines 'new agey' sensitivity to mood and depth with real musicality and melody, then 'Beyond the Missouri Sky' is required listening.

The textures build slowly and gently within each track. The album does take some listening to and will mainly appeal to those liking their jazz thoughtful and slow. It has a blues appeal at times and will often evoke strong emotions. Haden and Metheny work well together straying occasionally into an easy listening mode, but with feeling. This album should not be missed!

Today, a colleague asked me to recommend him some PM recordings as an introduction to the artist. Suffice to say I reeled off a list of my favourite PMG recordings and then remembered this album. I had to admit to my friend that this is simply one of the very best records in my entire collection, regardless of genre.

It's very easy to use up superlatives when you're discussing genuis but (please forgive me) this really is a very very good record. If you only have one PM recording in your collection make it this one - you won't be dissappointed.
