Rating: 92/100 (learn more)
The title track to the Pat Metheny Groupís 1984 album, First Circle, opens with a complicated clap rhythm and a melody stated via the wordless vocalizing thatís such an integral part of the Metheny Group sound, here performed by the multi-talented Pedro Aznar. After an escalating piano solo by Lyle Mays, the band takes off, building the tune into something gloriously ascendant. A standout tune on an outstanding album.
