Because of that early fame, he has had the freedom to record extensively, with near-annual releases since his debut in These recordings have teetered between two styles: serious guitar workouts in the tradition of masters with nods to modal jazz and fusionesque jazz built on rocklike rhythms and electronic orchestration. Unfortunately, he is more widely known for the latter. As he says in the liner notes, he stayed at home, turned on the tape machine and played. The result is a solo acoustic recording that is calm, introspective and accomplished.
Working with timbres, textures and acoustic-style fingering rather than fast-paced dynamics, he plays mindfully and precisely. Normally, Metheny is quite fleet-fingered. Whether undulating through an Ornette Coleman melody or romping over a blues-rock beat, he rarely leaves space between notes. Here, though, each note is poised in the air. Even when he strums on several numbers, the important bass- and melody-line notes linger distinctly.
The attention to the nuance of acoustic sounds is quite a departure from the way he often has used technology to project his sound in a louder, stagier way. Nonesuch Records buy.
