DEAD LINKS

NOTE : DEAD LINKS
We'd like to thank everyone for preventing us of dead links. For the moment, we are note able to re-up them.

Feel free to keep on preventing us of those dead links. We will update them when we (I and Jeb-E-Diah) have more time to (understand : from september). Some of them will be partially or completely repacked considering albums which would have been issued thereafter and surely with new and improved artworks.

Stay tuned !

PAT METHENY GROUP (ABO#325)

PAT METHENY GROUP
OVER THE HORIZON
(1978-2005)

I first met Jazz with Pat Metheny and even if it's not true Jazz, it still sounds like. This was my first step into that music style and since then I've been exploring much more of this never-ending land called Jazz.
As I said, the Pat Metheny Group is not an absolute Jazz band, although its leader Pat Is a real Jazz guitarist. This fusion explores many other lands that Jazz can marry with: Garage Rock (American Garage), Progressive Rock (Imaginary Days), Electronic Music (The Roots Of Coincidence) and many more.
PMG's music may be called 'elevator music' by some, but I do think there's many more than music without relief in it! In my opinion, I call that music 'Landscape Music' : relaxing and meditative, refreshing.
This Baistophe is made for people who, like me some years ago, still find it hard to be introduced to the world of Jazz.
This Baistophe onluy feature Pat Metheny Group songs. Pat Metheny, as a solo artist, Trio or Quartet Jazz band or in collaboration with others will be considered separately later.




My PAT METHENY GROUP TOP3:
1. Imaginary Days (1997)
2. Still Life (Talking) (1987)
3. The Way Up (2005)

My PAT METHENY GROUP BOTTOM3:
1. A Map Of The World (1999)
2. We Live Here (1995)
3. Speaking Of Now (2002)

>> This TOP/BOTTOM does not consider both 3 soundtracks album which are both worse than A Map Of The World, the latter be not a bad album though.

People calling it elevator music obviously never listened to "Roots of Coincidence", which is to me a curious blenc of Mahavishnu, 90's Tangerine Dream and Sepultura :) Nice selection, mate !
