Album of the Day
One Quiet Night
Among contemporary jazz's most gifted guitarists, Pat Metheny may be best known as a group leader and fusion specialist, but ONE QUIET NIGHT shows he's just as impressive in solo acoustic mode. Built on an improvised session cut in the performer's home studio, the 2003 Warner Bros. collection features eight new compositions plus distinctive takes on Norah Jones' "Don't Know Why," Keith Jarrett's "My Song,” Gerry and the Pacemakers' "Ferry Cross the Mersey" and the Metheny Group's earlier "Last Train Home.” Played on a baritone guitar in an unusual low tuning, these songs are soulful, intimate and perfect for a relaxing evening. Today we wish Pat Metheny a happy birthday with Best New Age Album Grammy winner ONE QUIET NIGHT.
