Metheny, Pat - The Orchestrion Project 2 x DVDs (Mega Blowout Sale)

SKU 15-EreDV 922
What happens when one of the most popular & influential jazz artists of our time does something a bit out of the ordinary and of possibly even more of interest to Wayside readers? The sad but unsurprising answer lies in the rock bottom bargain price for this incredible set....

"The Orchestrion Project was filmed at the former St Elias Church in Greenpoint, Brooklyn in November 2010. It features Pat Metheny on guitar performing with the Orchestrion, a vast collection of mechanical instruments that surround Pat Metheny in this atmospheric setting. The focus of the performance is the Orchestrion Suite, a work written specifically for this combination and debuted on Pat Metheny's Orchestrion album released earlier in 2010. Added to this are other tracks from across Metheny's prolific career going right back to Unity Village from his debut solo album Bright Size Life in 1976 and including other tracks from the seventies, eighties and nineties. This is a unique collaboration between a master guitarist and the pinnacle of mechanical music."

"I enjoyed this disc a lot. I have to say, though, I actually enjoyed the bonus tracks and bonus features as much as the main program, maybe more. In particular, don't miss the "Orchestrion in the Studio" extra. On this, one is able to actually see the working of the robot instruments much more clearly than in the main program."
