1989 Letter from Home Grammy Winner

Label: Nonesuch

Musicians: Pat Metheny, Lyle Mays, Steve Rodby, Paul Wertico, Armando Marcal, Pedro Aznar

“By far, this is probably one of the finest albums PMG have recorded in its extensive career. I wouldn’t be surprised if this work turns out to be a 1 contemporary jazz classic a few years down the line. Pat Metheny and Lyle Mays deliver powerful solos, some may say too long but personally I can’t get enough of them. Technically perfect, they sound “easy” in a very complex set up, musically speaking. “Beat 70” displays one of the best Pat’s solos I’ve ever heard. Lyle plays wonderfully in many tracks but “Better Days Ahead” stands out. Even when this is one of the most “commercial” albums PMG have conceived, there’s an ethereal aura surrounding the songs. “Spring Ain’t Here” and “Slip Away” are clearly vivid examples of that. Pedro Aznar’s voice is a major contribution to achieve it as well as the rock solid work of Paul Wertico, Steve Rodby and Armando Marcal in the rhythm section.” —Amazon.com
