Abstract (Summary)

This paper explores the arranging techniques and performance considerations related to the transcription and analysis of "Third Wind" by Pat Metheny and Lyle Mays; it compares Metheny and Mays' original piece to the author's arrangement as performed at her Master's Recital. Biographical information about Metheny and Mays are used as a preface to their lives as composers and performers. Also included is an in-depth analysis of the original lead sheet, the author's arrangement, and the performance itself. The incorporation of wordless vocals, as used in the original, is also covered. The author wrote original lyrics for parts of the song that help to clarify her interpretation of this lengthy through-composed piece of music.
