Albums For Life: 72: Pat Metheny and Charlie Haden: Beyond The Missouri Sky

I'm a big fan of both of these musicians.
This album brought them together and comprises some choice covers mixed with a few originals.
It's a beautifully conceived thing; subtle and understated; no flash soloing, just the delicate touch of knowing artists.

  1. Got this one too. In fact, got tons of Pat Metheny. Got into him while still at school. God, I was so cool :) The best guitarist in the world TM. Never afraid to push the boundaries (see Song X with Ornette Coleman of evidence of this). His BAnd albums are truly astonishing. The glacial beauty of this first Band album still sends a shiver down my spine all these years later. Good Choice.
