Metheny and Haden have a lot in common. They're two of the most respected musicians at the vanguard of contemporary jazz, and they've worked together in Metheny's own band as well as with people like Ornette Coleman, Abbey Lincoln and Michael Brecker. They're both innovators who've blazed new trails on their respective axes. They're also both from small towns in Missouri, which is the underlying theme of this collaboration. Essentially an acoustic duet album, MISSOURI SKY finds these old friends joining together to paint an aural landscape that evokes the wide open spaces and heartland Americana of the place where they grew up.
The album mixes original tunes by Haden and Metheny with some carefully chosen outside material, including Jimmy Webb's "The Moon Is A Harsh Mistress" and Roy Acuff's "Precious Jewel." All the tunes on the album benefit from the precision and grace of Metheny's acoustic guitar and the thoughtful fluidity of Haden's bass.
Artist Overview
Jazz guitar innovator Pat Metheny first appeared in the mid-'70s as a prodigy in Gary Burton's band, and soon thereafter was leading his own group. He is among the few jazz artists who've become household names--his music has appeal well beyond jazz audiences. He has used his success to pursue many less popular side projects. Ever the explorer, Metheny has been a pioneer of the guitar synthesizer, a champion of the avant garde, and a unifier of musical styles, incorporating rock, pop, folk, country and many global influences into his unique vision of jazz.
Professional Reviews
Q (5/97, p.122) - 4 Stars (out of 5) - "...some of the most elegant, eloquent duets you could wish for..."
Down Beat (4/97, p.50) - 4 Stars (out of 5) - "...Almost hypnotically slow and whispered, the 13 'short stories' of BEYOND THE MISSOURI SKY have a cumulative lulling effect that induces relaxation at the least, and total stupor at best..."
