This review is from: Pat Metheny: The Way Up Is White (Kindle Edition)
Guitarist Pat Metheny, now approaching his 60th, year has been making music for just on 40 years so an appraisal of his work is overdue. This detailed look at his prolific recorded output also includes his work as sideman on other projects. He is maybe most well known as leader of the Pat Metheny Group who's first recording under that name dates back to the late 70's. He also has a wide range of other recordings to his name ranging from reflective solo guitar to more extreme abstract work. The author is giving a personal, but objective, view on the recordings he covers and readers can form their own views on what is "5 stars" or "1 star". For example, the album "Song X", a project with Ornette Coleman I find, like the author, mostly unlistenable but respect that others might take the opposite view.
