Some 6 years after their previous studio album, The Pat Metheny Group regrouped in 1995 to release the album We Live Here. This was to be the first of a set of 3 albums that the band refer to as the triptych, the others being Quartet (1996) and Imaginary Day (1997). Following the release of the album, the Pat Metheny Group embarked on a world tour during which this concert was filmed in Japan. Many of the tracks from the album were included along with others from various 80s albums. There are 4 short interview segments with band members inserted between some of the songs which give an insight into the creation of the album and life on the tour.
