“James”, “The First Circle”, Pat Metheny Group Matherton Tempo Diagrams

The song The First Circle by the Pat Metheny Group,  in particular this live version from their album called One From the Road has Been recognized by many people in the music industry as music simply too original to be pigeonholed. .  As a gues on jazz albums, Pat with any group was able to sell at the level of  pop musicians of their time.  The difference between that Metheny group and the pop musicians was that  The PMG’s  better songs develop over 7-10 minutes – pieces where attention that many escape in to, many have not heard yet.

Lyrics make my head hurt but a Perfect Groove Never Disappoints.

The best songs hit me in the gut, viscerally.

I’ll usually like a song or not based on

1) liking the initial bodily pull from the harmonic rhythm;

2) liking the melodic sounds

3) liking the harmonic choices

4) liking the sonority.

Speed is something that rules music, Burt I have never changed a song in my of purchases based on tempo. All music I measure is purchased. I thank YouTube and WordPress firewall allowing recording embeds, borrowed never stolen. I’m a 40 year musician – I get it. Also a lawyer, thus being disbarred for stealing and REO Speedwagon hit? No thanks! Live ya Kevin Cronin, so know I bought everything I listened to before checking out GREAT performances from all the fantastically generous artists on YouTube💯💯💯.

I *have* thousands of purchases based obj whether I like the way that tempo is being used. I own every Pat Metheny Group, Genesis and Dave Matthews Band song. In the end, Carter Beaford of the Dave Matthews Band has been there most underrated musician alive since 1992!
