Album Review

Pat Metheny by himself with an acoustic guitar — for longtime fans it might not get any better. Always interested in blending jazz with folk and pop, the guitarist does just that, focusing heavily on the folk end of things on One Quiet Night. Featuring a nice afterglow interpretation of Norah Jones' hit "Don't Know Why" and an unexpected reinterpretation of "Ferry Cross the Mersey" which turns the Gerry & the Pacemakers classic into a poignant lament, the album also showcases Metheny as a melodic pop composer. "Song for the Boys" sounds surprisingly like an instrumental take on early-'80s British pop à la the Smiths, while "Last Train Home" brilliantly mixes Metheny's knack for taking simple chord progressions and beautifully tweaking them with odd harmonies. Perhaps a bit light for some straight-ahead jazz fans, listeners interested in thoughtful, folky, jazz-inflected ballads will find this rapturous.

What else to say but brilliant

This has been out for a while, but what a pleasure to see it in the iTunes library. It is shows Metheny's breadth, range, feelings, phrasings, amazingly creative use of his famous chord progressions, and of course beauty. Anyone who enjoys his other works must get this. Be aware that this album is wonderfully calm and peaceful. Although I love so many of Metheny's best works that build to a feverish crescendo, this is the other side of his genius. And a special prize goes to the person who can actually explain how he actually makes one guitar sound as rich and as full as this, please let me know!

One Quiet Night

So excited that this is on the frontpage of the library and it's refreshing to hear some pretty recent work. Each of Metheny's albums gives me a beautifully light feeling and this collection is no different...magnum opus.

Soundtrack of My Life

This is one of Metheny's best collections. In some ways, it really is the soundtrack of a particular period of my life, and reminds me of some of my happiest and most memorable experiences. I hope you enjoy it!

One of the most original guitarists from the '80s onward (he is instantly recognizable), Pat Metheny is a chance-taking player who has gained great popularity but also taken some wild left turns. His records with the Pat Metheny Group are difficult to describe (folk-jazz? mood music?) but manage to be both accessible and original, stretching the boundaries of jazz and making Metheny famous enough that he could perform whatever type of music he wanted without losing his audience.
