One of my favorite Metheny tunes, “Are You Going With Me?” is a song with a decidedly Latin/Brazilian inflection written by Metheny and Lyle Mays. Brazilian percussionist Nana Vasconcelos is featured prominently.

The Brazilian quality of “Are You Going With Me?” is frequently noted by critics; the song is “obviously samba-based”…
