Now the new Pat Metheny album “From This Place” is released. The record contains 10 new compositions by Metheny, recorded by his long-time drummer Antonio Sanchez, Malaysian-Australian bassist Linda May Han Oh, English pianist Gwilym Simcock, and the Hollywood Studio Symphony under the direction of Joel McNeely. Meshell Ndegeocello (vocals), Gregoire Maret (harmonica) and Luis Conte (percussion) are among the guests on “From This Place”. The album includes Metheny’s first new material since “Kin (←→)” from 2014. In the new year Metheny, Simcock, Oh and Sanchez will go on an extensive international tour
“From This Place” is one of those records I’ve wanted to record all my life. For me, it is a kind of musical highlight and reflects a broad spectrum of forms of expression that have interested me over the years – on big screen. The way it is performed offers communication possibilities that can only be achieved with a group of musicians who have spent several hundred evenings together on stage,” says Metheny
Over the course of more than three decades, Pat Metheny has continually set himself apart from the jazz mainstream by blurring and expanding boundaries and musical styles. His record-breaking oeuvre includes 20 Grammy Awards in twelve different categories. He was the only band leader to win Grammy Awards for seven consecutive releases in an astounding series. These include a number of influential trio recordings, award-winning solo albums, scores for successful Hollywood films, and collaborations or duet recordings with major artists such as Ornette Coleman, Steve Reich, Charlie Haden, Brad Mehldau and many others.
