Dream Box CD (Autographed)
Purchase includes CD insert signed by Pat Metheny.
Legendary American guitarist, composer and improviser Pat Metheny announces his newest album, Dream Box, on the BMG Modern Recordings label out June 16. The album is available now for pre-order on CD, vinyl or digital formats. Comprising nine “found tracks” for “quiet electric guitar,” Metheny describes it as "a unique recording for me; it is essentially a compilation of solo tracks recorded across a few years that I only discovered while listening on tour.”
The title Dream Box has multiple meanings. “Box” is jazz slang for a hollow-body guitar, and Dream Box documents many different guitar sounds. But “Dream” is the key here, as in the dreaming of Metheny’s singular imagination and a “dream logic” that is hard to pin down but absolutely coherent. In his own words: “Dreams in their broadest sense make up the vibe with this set. Music exists for me in an elusive state, often at its best when discovered apart from any particular intention.”
