Editors' Notes In the jazz landscape, dances between guitar and piano have been among the most sensual—but also the most difficult to pull off. Guitarist Pat Metheny and pianist Brad Mehldau complement each other perfectly in timbre and space on Metheny Mehldau. Tracks like “Ahmid-6” and “Ring of Life” are quick-revolving kaleidoscopes of harmony, with each musician either providing foundations or surfing above with stellar melodies. From Metheny’s long, nimble lines to Mehldau’s untethered chords and textures, both players’ musical personalities are in full expression here.
