Pat Metheny’s new release “Day Trip” (Nonesuch Records) is the first trio album that the jazz-fusion pioneer has recorded in nearly eight years. While Metheny’s more recent work with his group has consisted mostly of tightly arranged compositions for a large ensemble, “Day Trip” marks a shift to the trio format showcasing the improvisational prowess of bassist Christian McBride and drummer Antonio Sanchez.
“It’s like driving a big truck compared to driving a sports car,” drummer Antonio Sanchez said in an interview with The Hatchet about his role in Metheny’s newly skimmed down ensemble.
