The Story
Pat Metheny writes about "One Quiet Night", "On November 24, 2001, I went to my home studio, turned on the recorder, and spent the evening playing. I had rediscovered a special low Nashville tuning that I had worked with some years ago and applied it to a recently acquired baritone guitar. The combination of this wonderful new instrument and this unusual tuning not only made some different things possible harmonically, but challenged me to think about ways of playing that I wouldn't have normally thought to go. I found and settled into a very specific mood of simple, mostly quiet playing, really just for myself. Unlike most of our recordings, this one started and ended with just a single guitar and a mic. This record is about essentially one sound, basically one sound, basically one mood, and taking the time to go deep inside that single world."
