Pat Metheny - One Quiet NightThe celebrated U.S. jazz guitarist delivers something unique: an entire album with a single acoustic guitar—no overdubs or extra parts. Using what he calls a “low Nashville tuning” and a baritone guitar made by Canadian luthier Linda Manzer, Metheny creates an intimate, meditative showcase for his expressive playing. For repertoire, he performs new compositions like “Song for the Boys” and such tasteful covers as Norah Jones’ “Don’t Know Why” and Gerry & the Pacemakers’ “Ferry Across the Mersey.”
