Pat Metheny / Brad Mehldau: Quartet

Read "Quartet" reviewed by Doug Collette


The second installment of the Pat Metheny/Brad Mehldau collaboration illustrates how the most accomplished and established musicians endure growing pains as they learn to work together.

A pianist and a guitarist, both known for beautiful ballad playing, get together for an album of mostly duos. Snooze city, right? That's what I thought after the first track. Boy, was I wrong.
