2005 The Way Up Grammy Winner

Label: Nonesuch

Musicians: Pat Metheny, Lyle Mays, Steve Rodby, Antonio Sanchez, Cuong Vu, Gregoire Maret

“Most artists who have more than 30 years of success behind them usually talk about that one unfinished masterpiece, the one that’s swimming around in the brain just waiting to come out at just the right time. In the case of Pat Metheny, his latest effort “The Way Up” could very well be such a piece. The changes of mood and texture heard throughout the piece make the 68-minute running time goes by in no time. The strong musicianship between Pat and his bandmates is sensational while the compositional structure is flawless. Applause must be given to Pat Metheny and keyboardist/collaborator Lyle Mays for taking such a daring step and successfully pulling it off. This is Pat Metheny’s definitive magnum-opus, a mountain-top achievement for this brilliant guitar genius.” —Amazon.com
