Pat Metheny “From This Place”

Finally this album has been released!  I was truly excited to work on this project – we recorded orchestra for a week at Sony’s Streisand Scoring Stage in Culver City; one of my favorite rooms – not only is it a wonderful sounding room, but the crew is absolutely as good as it gets.

Also did a couple days of percussion overdubs with Luis Conte at Gustavo Borner’s Igloo Studios in Burbank.

This is some AMAZING music! The basic quartet is Pat, Guillam Simcock on piano, Linda May Han Oh on bass, and Antonio Sanchez on drums. Beautiful writing, some gorgeous lyrical songs, and some incredibly complex ones, and of course amazing performances from the band.

The orchestra stepped up and played this difficult music with soul and beauty.
