    Listening to this right now. I know some people didn't like it, but I think it's really cool to hear the two of them together (it's always interesting to here Metheny in a more 'straight' jazz setting). The combination of their trademark tones is especially cool; Sco's all grainy and edgy, and Metheny's mellifluous and smooth...:shred:

    Also reminds me that I need to acquire some more Scofield recordings... His intervallic lines rock!

    Does anyone else like it?

    I really like it. I am arranging a few of the tunes to do in an organ trio...me on 8 string and organ doing the duets.

    There are a few of the transcriptions about on the net, i think I have a few.

    John Scofield is probably my favourite modern jazz guitarist. Although recently pat martino has been blowing my mind. Check the thread on martino...

    I agree; the contrasting tones sound great together! Really awesome song.

    I'll have to check this out.
    I think Metheny is about to take over my jazz world. My brother picked up his "speaking of now(?)" dvd last week. Simply amazing. What guitar synth/controller does he use?

    I think he still uses one of the early Roland ones.
