2021 Road to the Sun

Label: BMG-Modern Recordings

Musicians: Jason Vieaux, Los Angeles Guitar Quartet, Pat Metheny

There are only a handful of living musicians who can continually reinvent themselves year after year, and even fewer still who can claim to have maintained equal degrees of innovation and sheer excellence across a career spanning decades. Pat Metheny is one of the few artists in the world who can lay claim to such a description. Road To The Sun is yet another unexpected and genre-defying new recording from the 20 time Grammy winning guitarist/composer Pat Metheny. This recording features two major extended works for classical guitar. Road To The Sun is performed by the legendary Los Angeles Guitar Quartet and performing Pat’s new solo guitar piece, Four Paths of Light is Grammy winning virtuoso, Jason Vieaux. 

"I am blown away by this new (Metheny) composition every time we play it. Such beautiful melodic and harmonic flow! Although his fans will recognize it as undeniably Metheny, he develops his thematic material so skillfully that the average concert-goer will get lost in his world. A soundscape of epic proportions." - Scott Tennant (Los Angeles Guitar Quartet).

 "Whenever an artist of Pat's significance writes not only a substantial work, but a piece that requires real virtuosity to perform it (and has his musical imprint all over it), it’s a big moment for classical guitar." - Jason Vieaux
