We Live Here is an album by the Pat Metheny Group, released in 1995 by Geffen Records. The album eschews the Group’s Brazilian-tinged jazz for downtempo and world music, incorporating a slick modern sound coupled with drum loops and sampling. This album shows a high level of collaboration between Lyle Mays and Pat Metheny having composed almost all the songs together except “Episode d’Azur”.
In the 1990s, the group embarked on a tour under the name of this album. A live performance in Japan was recorded in 1995, with Brazilian percussionist Armando Marçal (a.k.a. Marçalzinho) joining for the concert.
