Pat Metheny goes Polish
Pat's newest CD is with a bunch of Polish musicians who have serious chops. Check out these two live concert samples and see what you think. If you want the lyrics they are translated on the CD liner notes. Oh yes, and the female lead singer is Anna Maria Jopek and as you will see--- she can bring it. The project evolved from a request by Anna Maria for Pat to allow her to provide some original transcriptions of his music, along with some tunes of her own, and that they would perform together (they performed live together in 2002). Pat loved her sound, and having never recorded with a female singer in any extended way before, this was something creative and new. See what you think of the results. If you like jazz fusion, as I do--- this is synergy, magic, blessed.
