Item Number: S1.SMP-981

This piece was never recorded by the Pat Metheny Group. It was "lost in history" until discovered on a 1985 radio transcription. Pat says this was written for a gig with Charlie Haden, Billy Higgins and Chet Baker "that never happened." It is a wonderful, swinging tune that has solo space for alto sax, trumpet (or trombone) and drums. "Chet's Call" is a very playable piece, with limited range concerns. This is a side of Pat & Lyle that is rarely heard these days. A great tune ! 5-4-4-4.
