Pat Metheny: Bright Size Life (CD: ECM)Pat Metheny: Bright Size Life (CD: ECM)
Pat Metheny's debut album, released in 1976, when Metheny was only 21. It is notable for the maturity of its compositions as well as the strength of Metheny's sidemen. Featuring fellow fusion pioneer Jaco Pastorius in one of his first significant recordings along with drummer Bob Moses. Alongside Jarret's 'Koln Concert' this is a highlight of jazz in the 1970s and absolute must in any serious collection of modern jazz.

Pat Metheny: Watercolours (CD: ECM Touchstones)
“Guitar wonder Metheny has made an astoundingly tasteful and free flowing record here” the Massachusetts Valley Advocate declared. “Metheny’s compositions are perfect vehicles for his guitar, which blends smoothly with the breathtaking ensemble work.” The recording is the first of Pat’s albums to feature Lyle Mays, an important partner for the work ahead: “You can hear them reaching toward the sound that would burst forth a year later on the Pat Metheny Group album”, Down Beat would later note. And with Danny Gottlieb on drums, three quarters of the Metheny Group is present here. The personnel of Watercolors is completed by Eberhard Weber, with whom Metheny had already collaborated creatively in Gary Burton’s band. (ECM Records)

Metheny alone and, mostly, acoustic, playing folk-flavoured compositions. Pat viewed this as “an autobiographical album. It’s got a lot to do with the American Midwest. It’s very open and spacious.”

Pat Metheny: Orchestrion (CD: Nonesuch)Pat Metheny: Orchestrion (CD: Nonesuch)
“Now,” says Pat Metheny, “ten years into the new century, it feels like time to try to create something particularly connected to the reality of this unique period in time.” What he’s created, Orchestrion, is an adventurous “solo” recording that pairs the composer-guitarist with a phalanx of remarkable, custom-made instruments played via solenoid switches and pneumatics, resulting in what the Guardian calls his "most ambitious experiment" yet.

Pat Metheny: The Orchestrion Project (CD: Nonesuch, 2 CDs)Pat Metheny: The Orchestrion Project (CD: Nonesuch, 2 CDs)
Based on a childhood fascination with his grandfather’s player piano, 19 time Grammy Award winner Pat Metheny, commissioned and built The Orchestrion, a mechanically controlled mini-orchestra capable of responding to his touch on the guitar. This innovative project brought about a completely unique approach to solo performance. The collaboration between this master guitarist and his wildest imagination in The Orchestrion Project showcases Metheny single-handedly operating this symphony of instruments in one illustrious treat for the senses. The Orchestrion Project was filmed by Grammy and Emmy Award winning directors Pierre and François Lamoureux at the former St. Elias Church in Greenpoint, Brooklyn in November 2010. It features Pat Metheny on guitar performing The Orchestrion Suite as well as other tracks from across Metheny’s prolific career.

"From This Place is one of the records I have been waiting to make my whole life," Metheny says. "It is a kind of musical culmination, reflecting a wide range of expressions that have interested me over the years, scaled across a large canvas, presented in a way that offers the kind of opportunities for communication that can only be earned with a group of musicians who have spent hundreds of nights together on the bandstand."

Metheny is joined on the album by drummer Antonio Sanchez, bassist Linda May Han Oh, pianist Gwilym Simcock, the Hollywood Studio Symphony led by Joel McNeely, and special guests Meshell Ndegeocello, Gregoire Maret, and Luis Conte. (Nonesuch Records)

Pat Metheny: Road To The Sun (CD: Modern Recordings)
On his latest album, Road To The Sun, Pat Metheny surprises us once again with his seemingly endless ability to harvest new vistas while retaining the instantly recognizable Metheny sound. With two major new works, performed by five of the world´s leading guitarists, Metheny charts a new way of obliterating boundaries between genres while simultaneously unveiling new facets of an already expansive personal language.

Grammy-winner Jason Vieaux, described by NPR as "perhaps the most precise and soulful classical guitarist of his generation" was tapped by Metheny to perform his four-movement solo guitar suite Four Paths Of Light. The centerpiece of this landmark recording is Road To The Sun, a six-movement piece for fellow Grammy-award winning Los Angeles Guitar Quartet LAGQ - Metheny describes them as "one of the best bands in the world".

Pat Metheny: Side Eye NYC (CD: Modern Recordings)
Unlike almost any other modern musician, Pat Metheny remains uniquely unpredictable. A new Metheny record could be almost anything as the only musician to have won twelve of his twenty Grammy awards in twelve different categories. His recent recording Road To The Sun caused a sensation in the classical music world for its intricate and emotionally satisfying chamber music compositions. At the same time, its immediate predecessor From This Place was Downbeat magazine’s Jazz Record of the Year as an expansive and timeless large-scale work.

So the announcement of a new Metheny record is always a noteworthy event. Once again, a surprise is in store for the legions of fans Metheny has collected across the globe.

Side Eye NYC is an exciting, vibrant and energized new platform for Metheny, showcased in a recording that features 30 minutes of intricate new music set alongside a few unexpected and creative re-workings of Metheny classics re-imagined. (patmetheny.com)
