Pat Metheny: From This Place Review

This is a review I started… probably a month, month-and-a-half ago and ended up putting aside. I wanted to write something big and really dig deep into it but I ended up scrapping the whole thing and starting again a … Continue reading

This kind of took long and kind of didn’t. It took longer than I hoped, but most of it came together over a few lazy hours. I knocked out a whole lot of notes one day last week, then scrapped … Continue reading
