Pat Metheny, always ready to challenge himself, is back and pulling a double backflip with a decidedly hybrid album, onto which he has invited five virtuoso colleagues who are every bit his equal. For Road to the Sun, the American guitarist brought in Jason Vieaux, a contemporary master of classical guitar, to play Four Paths of Light, his suite for guitar. The centrepiece of the record is Road to the Sun, a six-movement work performed by the Los Angeles Guitar Quartet (John Dearman, William Kanengiser, Scott Tennant and Matthew Greif). Finally, Metheny, who designed and arranged the whole work, revisits Arvo Pärt's Für Alina alone, with his 42-string guitar. This work, originally written for piano, closes the album. It represents a new peak of purity for this performer who hits all the right notes... This "classic" outing is not his first: most notably, he has previously recorded Steve Reich's Electric Counterpoint. This time, however, the tone is more scholarly and sometimes finds its source in the works of composers such as Francisco Tárrega. But the Metheny touch hasn't gone anywhere. Every second of this record is alive with colours that will enchant both lovers of, and newcomers to, the classical guitar. © Max Dembo/Qobuz

ECM in 10 Albums

“The most beautiful sound next to silence.” That’s been ECM’s motto for the past fifty years. Manfred Eicher, the charismatic founder of the Munich label, seems to live in a parallel universe. And jazz sounds different on planet ECM. It is often thanks to this label that artists such as Keith Jarrett, Charles Lloyd, Jan Garbarek, Chick Corea have recorded their best records. Even more so than with Blue Note or Impulse! Limiting the whole history of this extraordinary label to just 10 records would be mission impossible. So, these 10 albums will tell not “the” story but “a” story of ECM.
