Jazz Fusion Can Be Soft Too

Bright Size Life, Pat Metheny’s first studio record, is the kind of mellow music you’ll love to listen to with your family for a laid back winter vacation afternoon. As a bonus, Jaco Pastorius is on the bass, and I’ll have to learn more about drummer Bob Moses since he’s doing a fine job too (good drummers can do a lot just with their cymbals).
A funny coincidence is, on this album there’s a cover of a track by Ornette Coleman, whom I just found I needed to investigate, since apart from a couple albums from Dolphy or Coltrane I’ve got almost no free jazz in my collection yet. For a "small world" where all musicians are a couple degrees from each other at most, jazz is really huge!
