Pick this up if you're a Metheny fan or just interested in sampling some good jazz guitar.
Olukayode Balogun
Their collaboration on this album has produced one of the most exciting jazz albums I've heard in years.
T. Stevens
Great playing by the leader, as well as bassist Christian McBride and drummer Antonio Sanchez.

The late jazz writer Richard Cook described Pat Metheny's enormous audience as a mixture of "progressive-rock listeners, fusion fans, and plain old lovers of guitar heroes". In other words, he manages to cover quite a few stylistic bases, but here's an album that will appeal most to the hard-core jazz listeners among Metheny's many fans.
'Metheny hooks up with his regular partners, Christian McBride on double bass and Antonio Sanchez on drums. As you'd expect for musicians who have played hundreds of dates together they're very comfortable in each other's company, with McBride's marvellously deep, rich bass really shining throughout'(BBC).
'In its early stages, "Day Trip" seems to fall into some familiar postbop traps (too much technique, overwrought themes) but it soon settles into some jubilant improvising from all three, on the kind of bluesy grooves, Latin swingers and inviting ballads that suggest Wes Montgomery has returned to life and found the hippest 21st-century world-music partners he could' (Guardian).
He dazzles on 10 new originals.
"Let's Move" is fast and boppish, "At Last You're Here" is a fine ballad, bound to become a classic - as might his bluesy "Calvin's Keys" and a bittersweet acoustic lament for flood-battered New Orleans, "Is This America?"
For technique, taste and originality, Pat's still the man.
He is alternately pastorally lyrical and hard-swinging, reminding us of his origins in the music of Wes Montgomery and Jim Hall respectively.
Apart from the unmemorable nature of some of the compositions, this is delightful stuff.

Guitarist Pat Metheny gets together with what he calls "two of the best people on earth"; drummer Antonio Sanchez and bassist Christian McBride - all three of them geniuses in their respective fields, if you ask me - for this beautiful set of 10 songs lasting just over one hour. I often find myself searching for words when reviewing any Pat Metheny project. What's there to say anyway, apart from, it's stunningly beautiful and just as good as (if not better than) I expected it to be? It is very true though, that no new musical ground is broken on this disc - hence the "more of the same" comment by a previous reviewer; a comment I tend to agree with - but that doesn't bother me much. I don't think I could ever get bored of music by Pat Metheny and the album loses no stars from me as a result.

Metheny plays electric guitar for the most, only choosing acoustic guitar on the thinly veiled political lament "Is This America? (katrina 2005)", on which McBride takes a bow to his bass, and then again on "Dreaming Trees". He also plays his trademark guitar synth on "When We Were Free", a cover of a song that originally appeared on the Pat Metheny Group 1996 album Quartet and again on "The Red One", another one I've heard before on I Can See Your House from Here, the 1994 album Pat made with John Scofield. Sanchez and McBride make sure the covers work, in that they both actually add something new to the originals, which were pretty awesome to begin with. Kudos to them.

The guitar/bass/drums trio format has always been my favourite of them all and this particular trio has not let me down.

I'm going to have to say I was disappointed with this album for a number of different reasons. I'll start by saying that it is not by any stretch a bad album, per-se. Metheny does have some serious chops and his new trio-mates, Christian McBride and Antonio Sanchez, are both excellent musicians that I have liked for a while in their own rights. Those concessions aside I have to say that I feel like Metheny is stuck in a rut musically speaking. I think its such a shame that Metheny sounds just like last time here. Not that Metheny sounded bad the last time around, just that I was hoping for something different or new to come with the new trio. If there is any exploration here it is tepid at best. At first when I began listening to this album, it struck me as pretty good standard Metheny affair. I found I could not stomach an entire albums worth of it though and began to zone out during Metheny's solo's. The album became for me a vehicle of the two other trio members who are both in fine form here. Still, however, a disappointment.

What hits you square between the eyes on this disc is the warmth of Pat's guitar tone, his amazing telepathy & synergy with the rhythm section &, finally Sanchez' utter "completeness" as a percussionist (sorry, but this guy ain't just a "drummer", he's the complete rhythm colourist). As for the tunes themselves, they are generally down-tempo (which makes the many intra-tune mood & rhythm changes even MORE glorious) & although not instantly "memorable" I can almost guarantee most will seep into your psyche after a few listens. A brief track by track overview:-
Son of Thirteen: a decent opener, albeit without a memorable "hook" & perhaps a little too much of Pat's trademark "runs" before he virtually stops on a dime to comp behind a shimmering Sanchez "solo" which is well worth the wait & definitely "steals" the tune!
At last you're here: Excellent piece worthy of repeated listens; Pat shows off a number of tricks in the jazz guitarist's armoury here (including a fantastic progression from single notes to chords which gave me goosebumps on the first listen!) plus a stunning solo from McBride with Sanchez again brilliant.
Let's move: as the title implies, probably the most "straight-ahead" tune & perhaps my least favourite for that; rhythmically & technically excellent solo from McBride.
Snova: an underlying bossa nova beat (as the title suggests) & if you close your eyes you can almost imagine the warmth of Pat's guitar tone carrying you with him across the dance floor before the bassman tries to cut in! Incredibly evocative & romantic.
Calvin's Keys: great groove, reminiscent of early swing bands at first but then, by turns, funky, light-hearted & playful. I reckon they must have had great fun with this tune on tour.

I also caught this act @ Mpls' Orchestra Hall. You are right it was great. I saw the trio with Mehldau's rhythm section a couple of years prior. I can't say I liked it.
