This review is from: One Quiet Night (Audio CD)
I know people who call this background music. Is that true ? Yes, in so far that almost every kind of music from Bach and Mozart to The Rolling Stones can be used as background music. But it's not true if you take the time to listen carefully. There can be a lot of variety, compare for instance 'Song For The Boys' with the dreamy 'Another Chance', but variety is not the message of this CD. You have to listen to the recording as a whole, pretty much as a symphony in classical music. Let's hear what Pat Metheny has to say: 'This record is about essentially one sound, basically one mood, and taking the time to go deep inside that single world'.
One thing: if you're not familiar with the sound and the tuning of this baritone guitar, it may take a little while to get used to it.
