EDITORS’ NOTES

Having played trio with Jaco Pastorius and Bob Moses (Bright Size Life), Charlie Haden and Billy Higgins (Rejoicing), and Dave Holland and Roy Haynes (Question and Answer), guitar legend Pat Metheny formed another powerful trio lineup with bassist Larry Grenadier and drummer Bill Stewart in 1999 to mark the end of the century. The resulting studio album offers an especially intimate, unadorned look at Metheny’s guitar mastery—from the new steel-string acoustic ballads “Just Like the Day” and “We Had a Sister” to stripped-down versions of Pat Metheny Group staples “Lone Jack” and “Travels.” The bebop spirit is strong on “(Go) Get It,” “What Do You Want?” and “Soul Cowboy,” and the evocative readings of John Coltrane’s “Giant Steps” and Wayne Shorter’s “Capricorn” bring Metheny’s formidable insight to bear on those giants of the post-bop canon. With the release of Trio-Live in late 2000, listeners got an even bigger dose of this lineup unleashed on the bandstand.
