SUBJECT: Is Pat Ever Going to Release Another CD? Back to Subjects

I’ve read somewhere that Pat has something like 10 releases in the can, but three years have passed since his last recording without him putting anything new out. Just wondering if a new release or multiple releases are coming sometime in 2018. Would especially like to hear how he sounds with his latest group. Cheers.

Bookmark and Share naut - that’s exactly why that i frequently use the ’ha’ bit . . . . i didn’t used to, but people would often not ’get it’ when i was doing tongue-in-cheek, or whatever, and so in order not to have any confusion, nor the oh-so-dreaded ’misunderstanding’ with the ones who ’don’t listen well’, i have resorted to using the ’ha’, and all that . . . . i’d rather not, because my mother used to use ’ha’ ALL THE TIME when she would write me letters, and i always kind of didn’t dig it, but i’d rather do that than having recipients of my info think that i was being serious when i was just joking around . . . . . btw, i thought what you wrote was hilarious, especially the ’wes-wannabe’ thingie, and i’ll bet pat would chuckle at it, too! . . . . . . . let’s hear it for ’elevated humor’!!!

Bookmark and Share I was just now pondering this question on another forum. It’s been four years since the last all-new Unity Band album came. That debut concert for his composition with the L.A Guitar Quartet was almost two years ago, and it’s still not available, I don’t think. Not that Pat owes anything more, but I’d certainly like to hear more. He’s my favorite composer, after all. At this rate, I won’t live to hear those ten albums! This kind of dry spell has no precedent in his long career, and I can hardly even speculate why. The last US Unity Group tour, almost two years ago, had two or three new songs (and at least one new wild, intense guitar sound), but without recordings to back them up, even Pat’s robust melodies don’t sink in. If you’ve seen the PMUG lately, how much new material was played?

Bookmark and Share Ah, come on, folks. Who wants another mediocre album from a washed-up, has-been Wes-wannabe who’s only been toodling along for the past forty years, barely getting by artistically and musically? ME! That’s who! (Ha! as mole would say.) -- I didn’t get to see the Evening quartet either, but they’re making a swing through my neck of the woods in autumn, so I hope to catch them then--maybe twice if I’m lucky. (BTW, that first part was a joke; I say this for the benefit of those who sit in judgment.)

Bookmark and Share You know. .... Pat has produced so many great albums in the past 40 years that I can’t believe that it’s possible to produce anything better. But I’m looking forward to his next album and a whole new dimension .. that he seems to conjure up repeatedly.

Bookmark and Share I’m hoping for another recording to add to his already massive output. The usual fan wanting even more! I’m anxious for a release with his "Evening with Pat Metheny" band. It’s the only show I had to miss in 35 years. But, I’ll take anything because I know it’s all great!
