Pat Metheny is at his most relaxed and searching in a trio setting and this truly satisfying record is a must for any fan. "Bright Size Life", "Question and Answer" and "Rejoicing"-- these trio recordings stand as landmarks in his stratospheric career. How appropriate that he returns to his roots for the Millennium. This is a fly-on-the-wall recording of the new trio where the jazz is for real and the communication is intimate and immediate. It confirms Pat Metheny (who we have known as an eternal student of genius) as a Jazz ambassador for a new generation of virtuosic artists on the scene. He chooses two immense talents in Larry Grenadier (bass) and Bill Stewart (drums) who play with authority but know when to hold back. The bass on this album is fluid, strong and inventive, while the award-winning drummer shows his commitment to and knowledge of the tradition, providing exciting momentum with imagination and assurance. There are songs old and new, hard-bop swing, sensitive impressions, enjoyable jamming, even a mellow Latin version of John Coltrane's masterpiece "Giant Steps" and the album closes with a tender retrospective as Pat Metheny re-plays "Travels". It seems to say: this is where I come from, this is where I go, and this is where I always am. --Ben Clarke
