Bright Size Life

Pat Metheny is one of the guitarists and musicians that I hold in the highest regard. Besides being  a great player and leader, he is one of jazz’ greatest composers as well. Bright Size Life is the title track of his debut album, released in 1976 on ECM, when Metheny was only 21. The album features Jaco Pastorius on bass.

I’ve recorded and released this composition before, but thought I’d take another crack at it in a quartet format. Mainly I just wanted to create some new backing tracks for myself so that I could play it more regularly.

Network Row Ten

During the school year it is much more difficult to find time for practice, let alone composing and recording. That does not mean that the urge goes away. I made some time over the weekend for this new composition and track. It is in my “fusion” style and is set for guitar, bass, keys and drums. As usual, I actually play the guitar and bass parts. I did a teensy bit of overdubbing at the end.
