beyond the Missouri Sky

This is the best album I have bought in 2009.
This subtle, sublime collaboration finds bassist Charlie Haden and guitarist Pat Metheny crafting bejewelled chamber duets that transcend genre. With their shared Missouri lineage as a thematic touchstone, Haden and Metheny forge a lyrical, mostly acoustic style at once intimate and expansive. Both pare their playing to a Zen-like economy, focusing on a purity of tone, clarity of harmony, and counterpoint to achieve a tender lyricism.

Close my eyes,
just hearing the music,
imagine landscapes I have never been to.

I would love to take a picture there,
just thinking them,
beyond the sky,
beyond us,
feel the earth.
