James
- Metheny/Mays

The first time I heard this tune was at a Pat Metheny concert in Zrich in the early 1980s, the infectious nature of the melody kept it stuck in my head for years before I finally got around to having a serious look at it.

Among his many other attributes, Mr Metheny is great tunesmith capable of crafting incredibly memorable and fun lines. Lyle Mays keyboard wizardry is the perfect foil to the guitar and Lyles chromatically inspired piano introduction to this piece is delicate yet powerful.
