  • Credits
    ProducerManfred Eicher
    EngineerJan Erik Kongshaug

    Personnel: Pat Metheny (acoustic & electric 6- & 12-string guitars, bass); Lyle Mays (autoharp, piano, organ, synthesizer); Nana Vasconcelos (vocals, drums, berimbau, percussion).
    Recorded at Talent Studio, Oslo, Norway in September 1980.
    Like the echo of a grand landscape, Metheny and Mays create an atmospheric meditation on traveling across the great open expanse of America. By turns introspective and hymn-like, soaring and transcendent, the music resonates with a rural spirit, to which the Brazilian percussion of Nana Vasconcelos brings a more universal feel.
    Both "It's For You" and the epic title track evoke sonic vistas that touch a nerve with their layered keyboards and guitars. "Ozark" is a dynamic track featuring piano propelled by gentle percussion, while "September Fifteenth" is a quiet and deeply moving dedication to pianist Bill Evans. "Estupenda Graca" is like a gentle prayer sung both as closure, and in anticipation of the travels to come.
