One of my favorite musicians is Pat Metheny, jazz guitarist extraordinaire. I especially like his work with his band, Pat Metheny Group. In previous posts I have listed their 1987 album, “Still Life (Talking)“ as one of my top five records of all time. In addition to his regular colleagues and collaborations with other musicians, Metheny has put out a couple of solo acoustic albums that are perfect for quiet summer evenings.
The most recent record, What’s It All About, is his first cover album. It consists of soothing solo guitar arrangements of classic pop songs, mostly from the 1960’s, all of which hold personal meaning for the musician. Of course, a record like this would have to include a Beatles’ tune. So today’s video features Pat Metheny’s take on “And I Love Her.”
Just right for sitting under the stars, sipping a glass of wine, breathing deeply and taking in the night.
