Pat Metheny “Sueño con México” / 1979 NEW CHAUTAUQUA LP / “Guitarist Pat Metheny is one of the few artists that can perform an entire album by himself and sound like whole orchestra on his own. NEW CHAUTAUQUA finds the modern guitar master employing a myriad of stringed instruments, in both solo works and multi-tracked collages, to great effect. Each piece is awash in Metheny’s signature pastoral style, full of lush strummed chords and angular melodic lines. So complete is the guitarist’s musical creation that it is difficult to distinguish the seams dividing his many instrumental voices, sounding as if he had played them all simultaneously. For the listener, this creates a sublime sonic experience.” (by
