Cleaning House

When the Rev. Mrs. and I clean the house together, we enjoy pretty much anything by Pat Metheny (except for his noise record, Zero Tolerance For Silence). Even though he's doing acoustic covers of The Association and insisting in interviews that The Carpenters are both cool and musically sophisticated, he has also produced some truly marvelous music over the decades. With long-time collaborator Lyle Mays, and in this video clip with bassist Mark Egan doing a fair-to-middlin' imitation of the late great Jaco Pastorius, Pat created a sound and style that is recognizable the moment you hear it.

I don't get the urge to dust and vacuum when I hear this, but I don't get the urge not to, either.
