Road To The Sun is yet another unexpected and genre-defying new recording from the 20-time Grammy winning guitarist/composer Pat Metheny. Metheny´s new album Road To The Sun features two major new works: A four-movement solo guitar suite "Four Paths Of Light" — performed by Grammy-winner Jason Vieaux, described by NPR as "perhaps the most precise and soulful classical guitarist of his generation" — and the centerpiece of this landmark recording Road To The Sun, a six-movement piece for fellow Grammy-award winning Los Angeles Guitar Quartet LAGQ — Metheny describes them as "one of the best bands in the world."
In the end, Road To The Sun is nothing if not another truly great Pat Metheny record. It will rank alongside Secret Story, Bright Size Life, 80/81, One Quiet Night, Still Life (talking), Song X, and all the rest as being yet another unexpected and almost willfully inscrutable plot twist, inevitable to a genre with only one common element: Metheny himself.
There are only a handful of living musicians who can continually reinvent themselves year after year, and even fewer still who can claim to have maintained equal degrees of innovation and sheer excellence across a career spanning decades. Pat Metheny is one of the few artists in the world who can lay claim to such a description. Road To The Sun is yet another unexpected and genre-defying new recording from the 20 time Grammy winning guitarist/composer Pat Metheny. This recording features two major extended works for classical guitar. Road To The Sun is performed by the legendary Los Angeles Guitar Quartet and performing Pat’s new solo guitar piece, Four Paths of Light is Grammy winning virtuoso, Jason Vieaux.
