"Are You Going with Me" Pat Metheny group

When I came to the Seattle area(1995) I wanted to see the jazz clubs such as Jazz Alley ect. I told about a million people that it was my desire to go and share some really good jazz live at a intimate club while getting to know the person better.
While I found one barmaid that went to the 5th ave theater for a jazz concert I haven't yet found anyone that really likes jazz or wants to go to this type of place. Am I really THAT WEIRD? I've asked about 50 or 60 different women this question.2005 still no takers for Jazz Alley.SIGH
Most just blow me off in their own way by saying they don't know. My friend(Think good looking biker type that can get them to throw their panties if he just plays a video poker machine at any bar) says that I should get a Harley.
I say that I've had about 20 or so street bikes except Harley's and if I needed a Harley to get chicks then I'll just do without. Besides he has spent the last 40 years of his life slaving to pay off the psycho part of the backseat riders that he ended up with. When I point this out to him he says that I really need to get a Harley.(Think he is trying to get me down to his level of groveling for it. Or he just wants to see me
deballed like every other rough tough biker once he gets some regular.) Lets face it girls you got what we want. Except for jazz lovers.
Most older jazz is very improvisational and is definitely sensual in nature. Just give me
a woman that wants to ride her own big bike(Harley OK) with me up some twisty hilly country road her groovin to her tunes and me to my jazz.
Come to think of it Pat Metheny is a good one to slip and slide to. For any paying any attention check out the song Are you going with Me. Builds slow with a great bass and drum beat to a impressive (synclavier) middle with Pat allowing Lyle Mays(keyboards) to fill him in. Mathematically speaking it's damn near perfect.
Builds to a climax with Pat soaring on his guitar
(tweaked to sound like a clarinet or almost a sax/trumpet sound with one octave higher on synclavier) Precursor to the MIDI>
Pat invented the machine to make the sound.
Check out his website to see what a true jazz educator/performer is all about.
Still waiting for someone who isn't afraid to
"Are You Going with Me"
