This piece is the essence of the clever, unusual, unforgettable kind of tune that Pat and the Group come up with. It is full of happy thoughts, and it moves from a march-like rock feel to a joyous waltz which uses the most beautiful chord changes! Once again, chord sheets are included for all players, but there is written space for guitar and piano solos as on the original version on the Letter From Home recording. If there is a piece which expresses the vitality and original thinking of the Pat Metheny Group, this is the one! The ranges and rhythmic demands are moderate, but the music is mature, contemporary music at its best! As recorded on Bob Curnow's L.A. Big Band,The Music of Pat Metheny and Lyle Mays 5-4-4-4 (8 brass w/opt. 10).
