Bestselling jazz fusion guitarist Pat Metheny releases his first album of all-new material for five years with drummer Antonio Sanchez, double bassist Linda May Han Oh, and UK pianist Gwilym Simcock. The album is a document of unrehearsed expression (Metheny’s idea) with Meshell Ndegeocello’s haunting voice and Grégoire Maret’s harmonica guesting on the ethereal ‘From This Place’ and ‘The Past In Us’ respectively. ‘America Undefined’ is a 13-plus minutes tour-de-force, the Wes Montgomery-like ‘Wide and Far’ is catchy with some great crescendos, the Latin touch of ‘Same River’ glistens while the calm and chaos of ‘Pathmaker’ ebbs and flows. ‘Everything Explained’ again trades on an interplay between Metheny’s melodic guitar and the dramatic band building up to a thunderous, simmering climax. Great stuff.
