When it comes to influences I seem, for some inexplicable reason, to have airbrushed out this particular band. Don’t know why – maybe it was the overabundance of cheesecloth and big hair. Was always a huge fan, especially of pianist Lyle Mays – a crazy lookin’ individual to be sure, but what a player.. Anyway, this is my favourite piece by them, featuring Mr. Mays in fine form, and at least one helicopter-flying-over-a-cliff moment. (It’s around 6.50 if you’re of a mind to find it)..
(.. Oh, it’s the Pat Metheny Group, by the way..)
