O’s Notes: When we slid this CD into our Ayre, we had to eject and do a double take! To be sure What’s It All About is yet another approach from fusion guitarist Pat Metheny and indeed it is pleasurable. He plays solo, mostly baritone guitar with transformed arrangements of ten popular tunes. The interpretations are fresh and inspiring starting with Asian infused “The Sound of Silence” and moving through a cool array of moods that will massage your soul. Our favorites were “Betcha By Golly Wow” & “And I Love Her”.
