Michael Brecker: Time is of the Essence, 1999

Checked this out from the Richardson library, July 2003. Pretty good album, with Metheny on guitar and Larry Goldings on organ. Three drummers on different tracks---Elvin Jones, Tain, and Bill Stewart. Better than Brecker's Nearness of You, which is kind of bland, despite an occasional nice guitar synth solo from Pat. Time is fairly straight-ahead, no guitar synth that I recall. Occasional multiphonics from Brecker.
