4.0 out of 5 stars what is it all about?, 5 Nov. 2011
This review is from: What's It All About (Audio CD)
As someone with dozens of Metheney's releases, some of which I'd save from a burning building, others which I just don't get, I hope I can make a useful comment.

I like this more than 'One quiet night'. It amazed me as a lesson in melody and harmony for solo guitar, with more melody wrung from 'Alfie' and 'Rainy Days and Mondays' than I knew was there. 'Betcha By Golly Wow' is something I could barely listen to in the original Stylistics version, but pared down and represented, it works.

I know PM does some things that confuse some of us and I'd never dare to question his approach whether it is trying to make us uncomfortable, or playing pop tunes like this, as an artist he does what he does and you make your choice.

Anyone who has always wanted 'Girl from Ipanema' played at their funeral but is worried about the suitability of the light and bouncy nature of the song, good news! PM has re-done it as a dirge. Amazing. Worth buying for the ones that work.
