I am burning and printing DVDs for work. It's a somewhat long and boring task. To help me get through this tedious part of DVD production I am listening to lots of music played from either my computer or from YouTube. I just listened to this particular tune that I am about to share with you. I haven't heard it in YEARS. . . DECADES! The name of the jazz tune is "Every Summer Night" and is found on Pat Metheny's 1989 album, Letter from Home. It's just great music to hear on a rainy summer day. . . while burning and printing DVDs or some other tedious task that requires mindless time and attention. It's happy, positive, and fun like a warm, clear summer's night hanging with family and friends.

Quote from No Stars In My Eyes
I haven't thought about the Pat Methany Group in YEARS! My favorite was "Last Train Home".
"Last Train Home" is a great tune! Love it!
I've seen/heard Pat Metheny in concert a few times throughout the decades. I try to "channel" Pat Metheny when I compose my more pop-jazz stuff. LOL! LOVE the way he creates melodies, and his arrangements and orchestrations (when he uses strings, and other more orchestral instruments) are so spot-on, musically. I especially LOVE how he incorporates "singing" into his arrangements. I don't think that I've ever heard any actual "words" sung during his compositions, just very pleasant, well-crafted and well-arranged vocalizations (like what is heard in "Every Summer Night"). To say that Pat Metheny is a significant influence for my own instrumental jazz compositions is an understatement. LOL!
