Pat Metheny/Charlie Haden - Beyond the Missouri Sky (Polydor,
By A Customer
This review is from: Beyond The Missouri Sky (Audio CD)
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.

Mr. D. Bain says:
I have to agree with you that this is a really great CD. My only disagreement is with regard to the track 'tears of rain', it's not the best track on the album but I still think it's a great track. I would go so far as to say that this is probably my favoutite Metheny album (I have over 30). A few of Pat's albums have one or two weaker tracks, but I don't think this one has.
