Pat Metheny - Rejoicing

Pat Metheny takes a vacation from his Group and performs advanced material with bassist Charlie Haden and drummer Billy Higgins. In addition to Horace Silver's "Lonely Woman," Haden's "Blues for Pat," and three Ornette Coleman tunes, the guitarist plays three of his originals here, including "The Calling," a lengthy exploration of sounds with his guitar synthesizer. Throughout this excellent set, Metheny and his sidemen engage in close communication and create memorable and unpredictable music.

Hi Melanchthon.
This is a nice recording, This version of Lonely woman is really something.

Hi Mel,

Gotta agree with ita diegues. Lonely Woman just about brings tears to my eyes every time I hear it. I've been collecting Metheny since 1975 and this one is among the very best of his output.

I've seen them at the Montreal Jazz Festival in the summer of 1984 in a very small club and it was just amazing, way far out more than the record. I think they did 7 sets in 4 or 5 days.
