3 stars The first offering from the PAT METHENY GROUP is a reserved instrumental work with little in the way of out breaks. Simply put, this is drums, guitar and bass playing a light brand of Jazz. The players are of course Pat Metheny on guitar, Jaco Pastorius on bass and Bob Moses on drums. There is lots of intricate playing but everything sounds so similar and samey including the songs.

The first two songs "Bright Size Life" and "Sirabhorn" are very light and jazzy. "Unity Village" is a little more melodic. "Missouri Uncomprimised" is a little more uptempo. The best song is "Midwestern Nights Dream" probably because it's the first song where the guitar playing of Pat's sounds different then the other songs. "Unquity Road" features some great playing by Metheny, while the next one is laid back again. A little more action on the closer.

Cool to hear Pastorius and Metheny together, I just wish this was more dynamic.
