Day Trip / Tokyo Day Trip (LP+CD)

news & reviews

  • about this album

    “The Pat Metheny Trio’s playing conveys a sense of proportion, substance and coherence, along with rigorous clarity; solid benchmarks for any great improvisers at the peak of their game.” —New York Times

    The Day Trip sessions were recorded at Manhattan’s Right Track studio in late October 2005, sequenced and released into a 10-song set in the winter of 2008. Reviews from the daily US press along the way have been a compendium of superlatives. The Philadelphia Inquirer declared, “Metheny shows why the trio is still relevant ... There’s nowhere to hide, and the easy fluency of Metheny’s chops create a unique world. His energy and verve make it fun to follow where he goes.” The Boston Herald concurred: “The trio format brings out the best in guitar virtuoso Pat Metheny, going all the way back to his stir-causing 1975 debut with drummer Bob Moses and late bass legend Jaco Pastorius ... But his current ensemble ... is arguably his best yet.” And the Louisville Courier Journal summed up the nightly reaction to the trio’s sets, “It was a collaborative tour de force that earned a standing ovation.”

    Tokyo Day Trip: Live was originally released in May 2008 as a 5-track EP recorded live in Tokyo with the Day Trip trio prior to their studio sessions. This three-disc vinyl release combines the contents of the full-length album and the live EP in a three-pocket deluxe package with all the music on two CDs as well.
