Pat Metheny - Secret Story



Secret Story es la consumación de la visión musical de Pat Metheny, donde confluyen jazz, folk, ritmos de diversas latitudes, en particular, brasileros, incluyendo en este álbum la adaptación de un himno vietnamita.
Extraña que no sea un proyecto junto a su popular agrupación, en los límites de un género que no tiene una aceptación masiva, el Pat Metheny Group, sino un esfuerzo en solitario. Metheny toca guitarras, bajo, piano, teclados, y se acompaña de una pléyade de exquisitos intérpretes, destacándose: Toots Thielemans con un solo memorable de harmónica en la entrañable balada Always and Forever, Mark Ledford en voz en la exótica Finding and Believing, Gil Goldstein en un arrabalero acordeón en Antonia.
Las composiciones son bellísimas: unas, representativas del temprano Pat Metheny Group, descriptivas de paisajes rurales (Facing West, The Longest Summer), contagian optimismo, esperanza, júbilo, regocijo, otras, animadas de un espíritu trashumante, nos llevan a recorrer locaciones de ensueño a través del mundo (Above The Treetops, Finding and Believing, See The World), las hay leves, suaves, delicadas (Rain River), con un cierto matiz naïf (As a Flower Blossoms (I Am Running to You)), mientras que algunas son simplemente conmovedoras (Always and Forever, Antonia, The Truth Will Always Be).
Secret Story es el relato de una gesta, una épica fantástica, un diario de viaje, una bitácora de una aventura, donde Metheny parece dispuesto a contar sus vivencias, algo personal, íntimo, profundo, experiencias que entrañan un proceso vital de maduración, individual y creativa.
El clímax tiene lugar en The Truth Will Always Be, una composición que se desarrolla "in crescendo", con el típico solo en guitarra sintetizada de carácter monumental, dramático, eufórico, explosivo, apoteósico, catártico. Cerca del final del itinerario, es el momento de una pensativa, introspectiva, evocativa, Tell Her You Saw Me. A modo de epílogo, en pocas palabras, convenientemente orquestal, Not To Be Forgotten (Our Final Our).
Una música llena de lirismo, poesía, sensibilidad, magia.
Un auténtico viaje a través de las emociones.*****
