Based on my love of the song JAMES and the review of the same song below, I sought  to find the exact tempo and a tempo map for the song JAMES by the Pat Metheny Group. Finding nothing relevant on my searches, I did the work myself, with the family cat James sleeping through the measurements.

5 stars This Pat Metheny Group album is in my opinion a masterpiece, and heartly recommendable to the progarchives readers. There are two Pat Metheny solos guitar , i mean in the second track “Are you going with me” with the synth-guitar, and in the sixth “James” with the canonical semi-acoustic Gibson, absolutely magnificent; “Offramp” is a tune marking the vigorously emergence of his “Colemanian”

harmonic side, and in diametrical opposition as about the atmosphere, the “nuance”, the third track entitled “Au lait”, oh! how strange it seems to me its mixture! I feel of course the brazilian flavours (the voice and the percussion of Nana Vasconcelos are a true saudade messenger), but also something else that recalls me to a 1950’s French noir-movie. The opening “Barcarole”, “Eighteen”, the final “The Bat, part 2” are worthy colours of the picture. Five stars.
