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. Latin American and especially Brazilian music had begun to influence jazz in the United States, and when Brazilian musicians such as Vasconcelos participated, the influence became obvious. The Brazilian quality of “Are You Going With Me?” is frequently noted by critics; the song is “obviously samba-based”…
