1993 The Road to You Grammy Winner

Label: Nonesuch

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

“One the thing the Pat Metheny Group has always been known for is being able to pull off everything it can do on record in front of a live audience. THE ROAD TO YOU captures PMG on a European tour playing for ecstatic fans that even sing along to the guitarist’s enchanting melodies. For their enthusiasm they are treated to explosive performances of many of Metheny’s best works. Longtime members Lyle Mays, Steve Rodby, and Paul Wertico and multi-instrumentalists Armando Marsal and Pedro Aznar round out the group. All of the group’s “hits” are here, including the blistering “Have You Heard,” which opens the show with a first-of-many jaw-dropping solos by the leader. The dramatic “First Circle” makes for an exciting live piece as Aznar’s vocal work and May’s delicate piano styling offer many pleasing moments. The crowd erupts at the first notes of the favorite “Last Train Home,” long a Metheny chestnut. The grandest moments, however, come with the exhilarating “Beat 70” and the stunning closer “Third Wind.” Also included are some new compositions like the eclectic “Half Life of Absolution” and Metheny’s tender acoustic piece “Solo” from ‘More Travels’.” —CD Universe
