Metheny’s compositions have become increasingly complex and intricate over the years, so it’s only natural that his latest album would continue that trend. Upright bassist Ben Williams’ interplay with drummer Antonio Sanchez springs to life on songs like “Genealogy,” where the duo’s connection through long measures and musical tongue twisters is seamless. Williams also steps up on “We Go On” and “Rise Up,” building cinematic crescendos with his intricate walking lines.
