First Circle – Pat Metheny

[Update: Found a second, more characteristic performance.]

Metheny’s best compositions (and “First Circle” is quite definitely in that category) often have a sense of joy to them that is rarely matched. I’m not sure the piece is best served by the big band sound in the later sections in this performance, but awesome all the same.

(And any ECM haytahz left out there can bite my lutefisk.)
