Since everyone’s been discussing for a while whether or not Pat will ever release any more music, lets see what everyone thinks are his top three albums of all time. Doesn’t matter if it’s group, solo, trio.. Lots of material I know, but just seeing what everyone thinks.

Bookmark and Share sunship, to be fair it may have been on either the Speaking of Now tour or The Way up tour that they did that. I do remember when they finished playing all the songs from ID, Pat himself said something like WOW. The last time I saw Pat was with the Unity Band at the Detroit Jazz festival. It was short show so they didn’t Roots there. They did play "Are you going with me?" where Chis Potter played a filler flute solo at the beginning.

Bookmark and Share Frank Sexton, I saw the ID Tour also. It was in an outdoor venue, I sat in a huge field under a tree. I dont recall them playing in order at my show, they may have, I cant quite remember. I felt ID was a shift for the PMG, and thats why I liked it so much. Of course they evolve on every album, but ID was really something creative and fresh. My first album and show was Letter From Home. That is what got me into PMG. The show left me absolutely floored. And Secret Story? "Above The Tree Tops"? "Finding and Believing"? Wow, what a work and what a tour. That was about as big as Pat ever got.

Bookmark and Share sunship, those are 3 great albums, the ID tour was my first PMG concert. As a prog rocker, I particularly liked when they played Roots of Coincidence and Lyle ,Pat and Steve all strapped on guitars like rock gods. They played the whole album as part of the concert in order, which just blew me away. ECM is what got me into jazz, so that was my initial exposure. I think I had the Works and Works2 albums first.

Bookmark and Share Im not saying these are the 3 best by PM, however, they have had the greatest impact on me. Letter From Home Secret Story Imaginary Day Hard to believe I cold leave off any of the ECM releases, but I was a little young when Pat was making noise on ECM.

Bookmark and Share Imaginary Day, Speaking of Now, Letter From Home - Imaginary Day for Roots of Coincidence, Speaking of Now for You and Letter from Home for Dream of the Return. Vidala (English translation) Artist: Pat Metheny Featuring artist: Pedro Aznar Song: Vidala Translations: Dutch, English English translation (Not Vidala) Dream of the Return Dream of The Return Music: Pat Metheny - Vocals: Pedro Aznar I tossed a poem to the sea that took with it my questions and my voice Like a slow ship it got lost in the spray I asked it not to return without having seen the open sea and in dreams telling me of its visions. Even if it didn’t return I would know if it arrived. Travel the whole life on the blue calm or foundering in storms little matters the way if some port awaits I waited so long for the message that I forgot to return to the sea and thus I lost the poem I cried to the heavens all my rancor I finally found it written in the sand like a prayer The sea beat in my veins and set my heart free

Bookmark and Share I’ve been listening to Pat’s music everyday for 20-30 years. . My appreciation changed everyday, especially when I could compile everything on an iPod and compare everything. I like almost everything Pat has ever produced, period.

Bookmark and Share That could change from day to day, maybe asking for his top 30 would be easier. I would have to qualify any list as "my favorites" rather that "top" or "best". I’ll go with Trio Live,Secret Story, and Kin.
