4 stars Even before he reached twenty, Pat contributed to two first-rate albums by the Gary Burton Quintet, RING and PASSENGERS (both marvellously melodic and exciting).

Then, in 1975, Pat got to do his first solo album on the ECM label. As far as I can see, this album has nothing to do with prog, it's an out-and-out jazz session, but as such, it's one of the most refreshing I know.

The pearly tone of Pat's jazz guitar blends wonderfully with Jaco Pastorius' superior bass playing and Bob Moses' virtuoso drumming. By turns abstract and lyrical, BRIGHT SIZE LIFE is full of refreshing moments that will keep you happy for a lifetime.

So don't be put off by the fact that this is only 37 minutes long. One of the all-time ECM classics!
