**Used - Sleeve/NM- Media/NM -1978 Japanese pressing with obi & insert**
Founded by Metheny in 1977, the PMG has relentlessly traveled the world playing and selling out concerts, festivals and clubs in more than 40 countries, becoming one of the most active and popular touring acts of any kind anywhere. Each new record and tour are awaited with eager anticipation and speculation; this is a band with an imagination and no-holds-barred creativity that has constantly surprised and delighted fans with the unexpected, yet always delivers on the endless promise of imagination and pure melody that was invoked from the first notes of their first record.
That record being the group's buoyant 1978 self-titled debut which finds the jazz luminary on 6 and 12-string guitars expertly leading a line-up of Lyle Mays (piano, synthesizer, autoharp), Mark Egan (bass) and Dan Gottlieb (drums). Includes Metheny's standout originals "Phase Dance" and "Jaco."
