Pat Metheny & Lyle Mays - As Falls Wichita, So Falls Wichita Falls mp3 album

As Falls Wichita, So Falls Wichita Falls is a collaborative album by Pat Metheny and Lyle Mays, released in 1981. The title makes reference to Wichita, Kansas and Wichita Falls, Texas. The title tune is just under 21 minutes. It is one of the few albums where Metheny not only acts as both the lead and accompanying guitarist but also the bassist, as each track uses fair amounts of overdubbing.

This joint solo effort by Metheny and regular pianist and collaborator Lyle Mays is an impressive outing. In the process of stretching out away from the confines of the quartet setting of prior albums, Metheny and Mays presage the sleeker and more ethereal sound of the band's Geffen years on portions of the title track. And while this side-long number has some dreamy moments, it also bogs down in a trite climax or two; one gets the sense of a jazz fusion and prog rock marriage Metheny luckily never fully explored.

As Falls Wichita, So Falls Wichita Falls - Pat Metheny&Lyle Mays (1981 Germany). Pat Metheny Lyle Mays As Falls Wichita So Falls Wichita� ECM 1980. While Pat's name gets equal billing on this album, let there be no doubt that this is the supremely talented Lyle Mays' showcase. He is a gifted keyboard musician/composer and he's brilliant throughout this project. Had this record come out a few years earlier when jazz rock/fusion was still in high demand it might have garnered the attention it deserved but, unfortunately, in 1980 punk, new wave and glitter bands were all the rage and intricate, thought-provoking albums like this one couldn't barter for ad space in Rolling Stone.

Cook, Stephen (2011). Retrieved 18 July 2011. When Metheny and Lyle Mays partnered with Brazilian percussionist Naná Vasconcelos on the album, As Falls Wichita, So Falls Wichita Falls, they sought to expand the potential of the recording studio as an ensemble instrument and experiment with sounds they hadn't previously utilized. Some of the innovations introduced on Wichita carried over into Offramp, namely Vasconcelos's vocals and percussion stylings.
