The last time I posted a concert video by Pat Metheny I got an email from his manager asking me to take it down because it had been posted at YouTube without their permission, in violation of copyright. Of course I immediately did so — the last thing I want is to take anything away from Pat or his music.
This one is posted on Pat’s official YouTube channel, though, so I’m pretty sure it’s OK. And it’s a gem of a performance of the opening section of Pat’s extended composition, The Way Up.
This film was shot during the Asian leg of the 2004 tour in Seoul, Korea. It is a special documentation of the Pat Metheny Group featuring Pat Metheny, Lyle Mays, Steve Rodby, Antonio Sanchez, Cuong Vu, Gregoire Maret, and Nando Lauria.
Musicians: Pat Metheny, Lyle Mays, Steve Rodby, Antonio Sanchez, Cuong Vu, Gregoire Maret, and Nando Lauria.
