Pat Metheny Group: Last Train Home (Live, 1991)
This morning I awoke to the news that Lyle Mays has passed. Lyle and I attended the same university (North Texas), but we were about 13 years apart. When I was there in the late ’80s, his legend still loomed large – in part due to his epic involvement in the 1 O’Clock Lab Bands 1975 album.
I later met him during a Pat Metheny Group concert, and we exchanged some North Texas stories.
Here’s a clip from a 1991 concert featuring Lyle and the Pat Metheny Group performing “Last Train Home.” The lineup includes Steve Rodby on bass.
RIP, Mr. Mays. And thank you for all the wonderful music you’ve provided us over the years.
