This European CD, probably a bootleg, shows
just how exciting the band was live. On 70 minutes of music recorded in a San Francisco club, Redman often indulges in close interplay and exciting tradeoffs with Metheny; the two clearly inspired each other. The recording quality is decent, and the performances overall actually exceed Wish in passion and creativity. Highlights include “Blues for Pat,” an 181/2-minute version of “St. Thomas” and “Carla’s Groove.” All Joshua
Redman and Pat Metheny fans will want this one. - by Scott Yanow, AMG
