    Watch: Pat Metheny Releases "From This Place" Video; Vocals by Meshell Ndegeocello

    Pat Metheny has released a video for the title track to his critically acclaimed album From This Place, released earlier this year on Nonesuch Records. The song features lyrics by Alison Riley, sung by Meshell Ndegeocello. You can watch the video, made by Robert Edridge-Waks, here:

    On the album, Pat Metheny is joined by drummer Antonio Sanchez, bassist Linda May Han Oh, pianist Gwilym Simcock, the Hollywood Studio Symphony led by Joel McNeely, and special guests Meshell Ndegeocello, Gregoire Maret on harmonica, and Luis Conte on percussion. "This is extraordinary music," says Stereogum. “His most audacious album yet," exclaims Mojo, "a breathtakingly immersive experience that affirms Metheny as a consummate musical storyteller. A transcendent album, From This Place is possibly the Missouri fretboard maestro’s most impressive opus yet.”

    Composer Caroline Shaw's new album, Narrow Sea, featuring Sō Percussion, Dawn Upshaw, and Gilbert Kalish's performance of the title piece—five parts, each a new setting of a text from The Sacred Harp, the 19th-century collection of shape-note hymns—is due next Friday, January 22, on Nonesuch. Here, the artists talk with writer Matthew Guerrieri about the album, which also includes Sō Percussion's performance of Shaw's Taxidermy. Find out why she tells Guerrieri: "I was telling a friend, half-jokingly, that, in a lot of my music, I’m trying to figure out a way to talk about death and mortality, or think about it."
