With this having been the 50th anniversary of what became Elvis Presley's 32nd film, "Elvis: That's The Way It Is", I'm listening to the rehearsals that led up to those performances that were filmed & recorded from August 10-13, 1970. The rehearsals ran from July 14, 1970 to August 10, 1970 (the afternoon of the opening night show). I've got everything Elvis recorded....and even a lot of unofficial stuff.

yep...this is a major part of my late teen years when I was trying to get "back in touch" with jazz after living in the metal/punk world for a while...I have tons of great memories of driving around at night, windows down, listening to this
I forget how I found The Metheny Group, but in 1986 I saw them live at an outdoor amphitheater. They began the concert with band members playing Forward March from within the audience, and marching slowly to the stage while smiling & laughing with the crowd. When they broke into Yolanda, You Learn everyone got goosebumps. Much better energy than the recording.

To this day it’s one of the best concerts I’ve attended.
 
since Im at work, and have to pretend to Keep it civil, I have a classic Heavy Metal Playlist going. Currently playing "Quiet Riot - bang your head" . Good fun.

I've seen Pat Metheny with Antonio Sanchez a few years back (2009 I think). It was in Burlington Vermont. That was where I bought my copy of "Imaginary Day" and the Metheny Songbook by Hal Leonard.
I like Metheny's style - big hair bobbing up and down as he raises up on his toes hitting the high notes in the melody. Antonio is a monster as well. I saw him in 2015 in Portland's Jimmy Mak's up close.
