A great ECM session
This lovely record - which really should be attributed to Gary Burton, by the way - is a triumph for all concerned. Pat Metheny, caught in a collaborative role long before his international stardom, is on sparkling form: his gorgeous, ethereal 'B & G' and perky 'The Whopper' being highlights of the record, while the version of 'Yellow Fields' herein eclipses even Eberhard Weber's fine original version for subtlety and sheer beauty. Great solos abound, not least on Chick Corea's 'Sea Journey' where the vastly contrasting styles of the two superstar bassists enhance the sense of exhuberence evident throughout the track. Burton himself is a joy to listen to. One of those great ECM sessions where everything just seemed so right. Download with confidence!
