Pat Metheny Group
Speaking Of Now
With "Speaking Of Now", their eleventh studio album, the Pat Metheny Group has evolved to a new level, a new high and a joyous new stride in their journey of discovery. With three exciting new faces in the band, Metheny and his longtime pianist/collaborator, Lyle Mays, join bassist and co-producer Steve Rodby (now in his 20th year with the band) to once again challenge the basic premise of what a modern day jazz group can be, delivering a collection of music that delights and resonates with its unique musical perspective into the now of this moment in time while striking a universal and timeless note of hope that will speak to listeners everywhere.
