The work he did on "As Falls Wichita, So Falls Wichita Falls" is some of my very favorite music to listen to. I especially love the live version. I've bought that on vinyl, tape and CD. Now I've got it on Itunes...listen all the time to that stuff.

Nana Vaconcelos who was also prominent on "As Falls Wichita.." passed away 4 years ago. I was lucky to see a solo show of his, and also to meet Pat Metheny in a convenience store which he promptly bolted out of when I tried to talk to him. He left so fast you would swear he had held the place up!

you remember the movie theater behind Berklee, the Sack Cheri? I worked there my last 2 years and Lyle Mays would come in all the time and play Ms. Pacman while waiting around. I used to hang around pestering him with questions and stuff while he was playing, lol - I'm sure he loved that.

now this is really weird, Wichita was also one of my favs, had on 2 cassettes, vinyl then cd, also met metheny and his wife once after a show at navy pier, was nice but a very short conversation, he seemed to be in deep thought or something, was kinda awkward/strange.
