SUBJECT: Jason Vieaux’s Images of Metheny Back to Subjects

I was lucky enough to catch a phenomenal classical guitarist by the name of Jason Vieaux last night with the Reading Symphony Orchestra. In his bio I saw that he had made a cd of some of Pat’s music in 05. I had a chance after the show to speak to him about the project and he said Pat was really happy with his renditions. I immediately came home and ordered a copy for myself. If you get the chance to see Jason in concert, do it. You won’t regret it. I can’t wait to hear the cd. Has anyone else heard it?

Bookmark and Share I also live in Reading and got to see Jason Vieaux rehearse with the orchestra, though I couldn’t stay for the evening concert. I heard him rehearse the Rodrigo concerto and it sounded fantastic. I’ve heard some of his "Images of Metheny" album, and was inspired to work out a solo version of "Letter From Home". It’s on my YouTube page for anyone who would like to hear it:

Bookmark and Share I have the CD, and I love it. It takes Metheny to a pure classical essence. There might be a couple of clunkers on the CD, but the others make up for them.

Bookmark and Share Highly recommend it. His arrangements are great, and technique is amazingly clean and precise. And the recording quality is great, too, recorded in an old church in Cleveland, rather than a studio.

Bookmark and Share I also highly recommend this recording.The transcriptions are beautifully arranged and performed.And also of interest is his baroque style suite based on five of Pats’ songs.
