Doub, can you post your version of James on the 5? I'm going to start working on this one soon on 4. Hope all is well out West.

David - you had said earlier on a different thread that “James” might be like FMB for 5-string. Not sure if that’s necessarily the case but I totally see your point. I’d be more apt to say “Bright Size Life”, “Question and Answer”, or “Last Train Home”. There is a really cool version of BSL by an Icelandic choir singing in a cave. Really cool! (Figuratively and literally)

Some great sounds to wake up to. If only I could see the Northern Lights right now.

BSL is one of my fave tunes AND records. I learned it about 35 years ago when I was playing in a fusion trio that did lots of Metheny ... I also love what is called exercise 3 in the Real book. Pat started composing more complicated tunes with harder “road maps” as the years went by, but I’ll always be more drawn to the tunes from his early years ...

I totally understand about the earlier years. What he was doing then was almost revolutionary and also more accessible musically-speaking. What I have realized today is that his compositions are architecturally brilliant - not only harmonically but structurally and emotionally. The three Unity Group albums have been on “repeat” for me over the last 16 months and I still cannot digest enough of them. I’m looking forward to what the new “Side Eye” project will yield!

Yeah Patrick ... I love most everything he does. I guess the early years were just so fresh and new sounding .... like you said, revolutionary. I just tend to like the first couple of albums of artists best ... I don’t know why that is !
