Pat Metheny Group - American Garage
The quintessential Metheny. No collection is complete without this work; the strength of his compositions, the performances of his original members is just dazzling. We have so few geniuses with originality and virtuosity nowadays, but this guitarist is truly all of that, and this recording showcases his youth and vitality to it's fullest. Each track is charged with passion, nuance, and even some romance, while tearing at the seams between jazz and rock.
