J & R Downtown Jazz Fest ’99

Excerpt taken from the Jazz Fest interview of guitarist Pat Metheny.

Q: What are the top five albums on your listening list today?

A: Pat Metheny: Here are some recent records I have been enjoying : “A World Away – Walt Weiskopf, also on CrissCross – a fantastic tenor player with 3 of the best young musicians in New York – Larry Goldings on organ, Bill Stewart on drums, and Peter Bernstein on guitar. Again, excellent writing and a great approach to this instrumentation.”
