O’s Notes: Pat Metheny embarks on a solo effort featuring his new baritone guitar with a special low ‘Nashville’ tuning. In his words, “This record is about essentially one sound, basically one mood, and taking the time to go deep inside that single world”. Our assessment: it’s peaceful and reflective music, capturing the true tones of the instrument and translating them to warm spirits. Easily placed in a gallery or as an unobtrusive thought-provoking medium, it’s yet another dimension from Pat.
