Pat Metheny, One Quite Night, Nonesuch

I think Pat was screwing with us on the title because the baritone guitar he plays in a solo session is definitely not quiet. I had to turn my stereo down for fear of upsetting the neighbors. (Warm today, had the windows open.)

Maybe he means quiet as opposed to "loud" like the cream, red and yellow checked sports coat I had back in the '70s. The CD is quiet as in elegant and timeless. A nice version of Don't Know Why, an engaging take on Ferry Cross the Mersey (avant-garde jazz version) and a whole bunch of Metheny, ranging from Over on 4th Street, which practically rocks, to the intricate and melancholy I Will Find a Way. Good guitar.
