All About Jazz
On three of the disc’s ten tracks, Metheny utilizes the acoustic guitar in an almost folkloric manner.

This is the mark of another middle-of-the-road jazz guitar albumand despite the reputation of Mr. Metheny, I can’t quite recommend it. […]
Another pleasant surprise here is Metheny’s breezy, bossa-flavored interpretation of “Giant Steps,” in which he turns Trane’s ultimate proving ground into an alluring vehicle for melodic improvisation. […]
