2011-06-27I have always considered Pat Metheny to be one of the worlds greatest and innovative guitar players. On his new disc "What's It All About" a solo guitar release of cover tunes Pat shows that he is still a skilled player, but innovation and excitement have been replaced with mundane and lifeless. Pat breeds no new life into songs that inspired him growing up such as Simon & Garfunkel's "The Sound Of Silence" , Jobims "Garota De Ipanema" or the Beatles "And I Love Her". The only real redeeming quality I could find is the sounds of Pat's guitar is still beautiful which may make this CD a Grammy winner for the worlds greatest Elevator Music Disc. If you have been a fan of Pat Metheny for the past 35 years as I have been you may ask yourself what is this all about ? Reviewed By: Gregg Saur
