Metheny offers relaxation

I am really enjoying Pat Metheny's new solo recording of him using baritone guitar titled One Quiet Night. (This was one of the items in the ill fated shipment.) The sound quality of the disk is fantastic. The baritone guitar has great breadth and offers a warm depth to the sounds. The music is very relaxing and has shades of New Chautauqua, which is one of my favorite acoustic guitar recordings and may have been the album that got me hooked on acoustic guitar and prepared me for Windham Hill Records. The song Over on 4th Street really brings Chautauqua to mind.

Pat Metheny's One Quiet Night is a beautiful work of art that makes you feel like taking a different look at life as you listen to it's melodic cords. I can't wait to take a nice long road trip up in the mountains listening to this CD. Pat puts so much feeling put into each stroke of the guitar strings that you emotionally feel the music while listening to it. It took me to me past, present and things to come in the future. I highly recommend this CD. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
