Road To The Sun is yet another unexpected and genre-defying new recording from the 20-time Grammy winning guitarist/composer Pat Metheny. Metheny's new album Road To The Sun features two major new works: A four-movement solo guitar suite "Four Paths Of Light" — performed by Grammy-winner Jason Vieaux, described by NPR as "perhaps the most precise and soulful classical guitarist of his generation" — and the centerpiece of this landmark recording Road To The Sun, a six-movement piece for fellow Grammy-award winning Los Angeles Guitar Quartet LAGQ — Metheny describes them as "one of the best bands in the world."

In the end, Road To The Sun is nothing if not another truly great Pat Metheny record. It will rank alongside Secret Story, Bright Size Life, 80/81, One Quiet Night, Still Life (talking), Song X, and all the rest as being yet another unexpected and almost willfully inscrutable plot twist, inevitable to a genre with only one common element: Metheny himself.
