1. “…In terms of the composition itself, it’s got a couple of things about it that I’ve done a lot of work on to try to write tunes that have different sections and different tempos, that compositionally have a kind of development over a form that’s not necessarily just a straight song form. The blowing is on a kind of a different form than the melodic material.. But, all of that is kind of nothing compared to the emotional weight that I think Mike brought to the way he played the melody.” Pat shares his thoughts on saxophonist Michael Brecker and his performance on “Every Day (I Thank You)” from 80/81.

    Listen to the full interview outtake, recorded with Pat in early 2011.
