5 stars More than two decades ago, a good friend, a lover of Jazz, recommended me to listen to Pat Metheny Group. The Jazz is not my greatest delight.

Get Still Life and later We Live Here, different and fairly enjoyable albums. So also heard others with good feelings.

But The Way Up is great, magnificence. Very progressive, energetic and imaginative. Peaceful and virtuous. Elegant and dynamic. Nothing is superfluous and nothing lacking.

The music goes through different landscapes, and never bored.

The melody of Opening, which is repeated in Part One, is great. Part One will grow from that tune to just over six minutes. Then Pat acoustic guitar starts another section that crosses different transformations to the end.

Part Two is sublime, with an overwhelming end. And Part Three begins with the classic sound the group. From the tenth minute, the music moves in a quiet and relaxing sound, which is diluted slowly.

sinslice | 5/5 |
