Pat Metheny - New Chautauqua (Music CD)
Shipping Destinations for this item
The tracks range from dense epics like the opening title track to the programmatic "Daybreak," a delicate solo work that produces a dramatic effect that is both lonesome and comforting. Metheny stays acoustic for much of the disc, employing stunning finger picking on the folk-styled "Country Poem" and the intricate "Sueno Con Mexico." The most haunting piece is the darkly lit "Hermitage," a melancholy work that displays Metheny's renowned expressiveness. Also included is the mood piece "Long Ago Child/Fallen Star," which hints at the guitarist's equally inspiring experimental side.
