There is substance as well as virtuosity here.

I highly recommend it to anyone that is either a fan of Scofield or Metheny and if you are a fan of both, then you most likely already have it.

Pat Metheny and John Scofield are different enough guitarists that it really adds to the excitement of this album.

Some collaborations between jazz giants seem to have been disappointing for whatever reason. John Scofield and Pat Metheny have such distinct approaches to jazz guitar, who could have foreseen what such a project would end up like? They may well have staked out their own territory at left and right speakers and just dueled off one another, but this stuff works incredibly well as a *collaboration*, a perfectly enmeshed meeting of two great minds of music (how's that for alliteration?)
John and Pat take about an equal share of songwriting. Some of John's best tunes are here showcased, such as the knowing, easy swing of the title cut, the lovely ballad "No Matter What" (he can sure do those too!) and the catchy, accessible "Everybody's Party". The two of them play in unison so well, it sounds like a single guitar run through a chorus effect or something, but then one of them will snag some witty harmonic aside in there somewhere and remind you that in fact two different guitars are playing. Beautiful.
Pat's placid acoustic numbers like "Message to My Friend" and "Quiet Rising" blend in the mix pretty well, and it's nice to hear Sco fitting into that context too (in fact, Amazon.com says that this recording date made Scofield finally actually buy an acoustic guitar, and the acoustic album _Quiet_ resulted a couple years later). Which is not to say that's the only thing Pat brings to the table. He rips it up in the energetic "The Red One", wherein he takes a solo with his distinctive "synth-guitar".
The rhythm section of Stewart/Swallow is impeccable. I love those little Chinese cymbals Bill Stewart uses to punctuate certain songs. Bassist Steve Swallow (always choosing just the right note instead of walking his fingers off trying to find it) and Scofield have such a history, they play perfect together. Terrific album, sterling quality all around, highly recommended.

What happens when you put two great jazz guitarists in the same recording studio? You get "I Can See Your House From Here". Pat Metheny and John Scofield are different enough guitarists that it really adds to the excitement of this album. Rarely, will you see two masters of the guitar appear like this without trying to upstage each other. All eleven tunes on this album are originals, each writing about half the material.
This album is load with lots of great licks, and music. The title track has a good theme to it, which each guitarist takes turns exploring. It nearly crosses the line into free-jazz, and sounds a little spacey. With "The Red One" they duo is grounded with both feet firmly on the earth. Scofield steps out first to explore his vision of the song. At the halfway mark, Metheny turns on his synth and sounds like a trumpet taking the solo. The solos go back and forth for the whole album, and the guitar work is incredible. Other notables on this album are "One Way to Be", "No Matter What" and Message to My Friend".
This isn't just an album of guitar. Steve Swallow and Bill Stewart join up with bass and drums respectively. Both are fine musician's and are able to provide the beat that the duo play off of. Stewart delivers an excellent drum solo on "Everybody's Party", that will have you banging the desktop or steering wheel like it was your own little drum kit.
If you're a fan of either Scofield or Metheny, this is quite an album to have, and I highly recommend it.

Why has this album gotten such mixed reviews? I'm not sure, but here's my take.

It's not that it isn't very good; it is. But it is an album that requires close listening, and patience. While you might like some of the cuts the first time you hear them, several will take a while to sink into your synapses. So, basically, this music is just not as immediately accessible as much of the work by both of these artists. But my guess is that most people who are fans of either guitarist--or fans of good modern jazz in general--will end up digging this record if they give it a little time. (And if you're a fan of both guitarists, as I am, I can't imagine not wanting to have this album!)

A correction to an earlier review: someone referred to Steve Swallow's "acoustic bass guitar". Ever since he switched from acoustic bass to bass guitar decades ago, he has always played electric basses, as he does on this recording. But it's an understandable error; he has a way of getting a very acoustic sound from whatever electric bass he is playing. Don't know how he does it.

When I was 16 years old, I took a jazz improv course at my high school and started learning how to play jazz guitar. My teacher strongly emphasized the importance of listening: 'go out and buy records! listen and study the greats!' one friday night, i went out with my dad to a local record store in nashville, the great escape, and he picks out this record for me.

after a couple listens, it doesn't quite sink in. it's too much, and after all, i'm only just beginning to learn this music. even though i didn't understand what they were doing, i knew that this was a higher level of artistry going on between two virtuoso musicians, not competing for a spotlight but REALLY listening to each other and making music. coupled with a superb rhythm section in the joint efforts of bill stewart and steve swallow, i had been officially introduced to jazz music. this was the record that started EVERYTHING for me.

as the years have passed, i understand much better what makes this album so great. for starters, the compostions are all beautiful and varying in their concepts and themes, including tunes laced with straight-ahead ("sco"), bossa ("say the brothers name"), classical ("message to my friend", and free jazz ("no way jose"). this is a GREAT album for any guitar player wanting to gain insight into the minds of two great guitar players. In my opinion, this is some of metheny's finest playing ever. every Metheny solo on this album is a complete story in itself, with no 'extra' notes or unwanted flash: perfectly to-the-point and stunningly beautiful (listen to "the red one" and "say the brother's name"). Scofield is equally great in a completely different way, providing more of the 'grit' which is more-or-less absent in metheny's playing.
