Pat Metheny was driven toward jazz by the discovery of one of his brother Mike's Miles Davis records (Four and More). All these years later, it's still fairly obvious that Pat likes nothing better than to architect a harmonic structure and then take a run though it. Metheny is clearly inspired here by the drumming of Bill Stewart, as they trade maniacal fours near the end of "(Go) Get It." Stewart, along with Larry Grenadier, swing like men possessed as Pat winds his way through the changes with characteristic abandon. This is a terrific example of Metheny in a more traditional jazz context.
