3.0 out of 5 stars Well recorded but..., Dec 19 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I purchased this based on reviews and audiophile recommendations. It is well recorded yes no better than many other jazz recordings and her song writing is merely ok even almost immature. The music lacks focus and her voice is quite plain making it not a recording that I would listen to more than once or twice. I wanted to like it but...

Please stick to what you are good at and that is JAZZ! One massive ego (Elvis) in the family is enough!

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy listening greatness!, Oct. 7 2012

This review is from: Esprit De Four (Audio CD)
This is by far the best music that either Chuck Loeb or Fourplay have released in years! They have both struggled with companions to compliment there style. This is match made in easy listening heaven, which ventures into groove jazz! I'm listening to it for what has got to be the 10'th time in four days since it arrived!

3.0 out of 5 stars OK!, July 24 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Unity Band (Audio CD)
Why does every track by Pat Metheny descend into caos, sorry that is improvisation to the unenlightened! Pat you have lost your way when it comes to melody and beauty which you once held in spades. Impatience has taken over your intent. I keep buying your cd's but none seem to compare to my love of your earlier works with or without the group. Often beauty but frustrating by the middle off almost every track.

There is sometimes music hear but the instrument combination is at often times irritating. Sounds good in the short term but is difficult to listen to for the entire cd!

Lovely production and very diverse styles of music from jazz to folkish country. Lots of ish but ultimately very satisfying cohesive cd.

5.0 out of 5 stars beauty, Feb. 6 2012
This is an absolutely beautiful well balanced cd that I have enjoyed for years.I can't believe it hasn't been reviewed yet. Just when you think it's heading into uncontrollable improvisation it brings you back to nurtured well thought out solos. If you like ECM recordings, the production is top notch, it's a desert island disc for sure!

4.0 out of 5 stars verry merry but short, Dec 21 2011

This review is from: Vintage Christmas (Audio CD)
I opened this cd 3 hours ago and I've been hitting repeat ever since! Wish it was longer though. At 35 minutes in length and at full price this is indeed a rip off no matter how much I enjoy the music. With the available Christmas music out there, there is no excuse.

Not as subdued as other Brahem recordings, not as far out as other Dave Holland projects, not as introspective as other John Surman ventures. An absolutely wonderful result!

3.0 out of 5 stars Why?, May 16 2011
This review is from: Orchestrion (Audio CD)
Yes, we all know that Pat Metheny is a very talented musician. Is it necessary to exploit it to this extreme? The band could have pulled this off better. Pat's recent offerings have been self serving meanderings that leave me as a fan, cold. We all know and hope he is capable of greatness yet to come.
