In Fall 2023 20 x Grammy Award Winning Guitarist & Composer Pat Metheny is launching a solo tour which will coincide with a new album release on BMG  Modern Recordings, Dream Box.  The tour, a first of its kind for Metheny, will  feature personal and fan favorites from his nearly 50 year career.

Metheny says “A few years back, I did a short run of concerts that were not  exclusively me and a single guitar, but pretty close. I loved it. Of course, I  always have to take it somewhere else too, which by the end of those  performances, I did manage to do (no spoilers here!), but what I have planned  for the tour following the release of my new recording Dream Box, is  something different for me, focused on the various ways of playing solo I have  explored across all these decades in an evening that I think will be very  special".

Think about these recordings; New Chautauqua - a 1979 recording that almost  single-handedly defined an era of instrumental steel-stringed Americana; Zero  Tolerance For Silence - a shot across the bow of modern music making, the  companion piece to parallel the Grammy-winning disc Secret Story; The  Orchestrion Project, a project so outrageous in conception and execution that  even a decade-plus later, it stands apart from any previous ideas of what a  solo performer might achieve alone onstage.

And then consider and contrast those projects to the two back-to-back  Grammy-winning solo Baritone guitar recordings, One Quiet Night and What's  It All About. Those recordings are not only among the most gorgeous pure solo  guitar recordings, but they also introduced an entirely new tuning system that  allowed Metheny to create an almost orchestral range from bass to soprano  within the realm of a simple steel 6-string guitar.
