A Map of the World is Pat Metheny's fourth film score. It is immediately noteworthy as this is the first time that he undertakes lead vocals as well as composing/arranging on a soundtrack album. The primary ensemble consists of Metheny's acoustic guitar, acoustic bass, played here by Steve Rodby, and chamber orchestra. But it is Metheny's folk-jazz melodies that are most prominent. Underlayered with the gentle harmonies of a restrained string section, the dynamics masterfully suggest both the expansiveness of the Mid Western landscape and the details of human emotions there. The basic melodic theme (represented on the album by the title track) is never far away, constantly referred to across the whole emotive canvas. Although Map of the World has no obvious hits such as "This Is Not America", the track that was popularised by David Bowie on Metheny's first soundtrack project, "The Falcon and the Snowman" (1984), this is a much more beautiful allbum. Kansas City's unpredictable master of mood paints A Map of the World as a place where evocative melodies and harmonic progressions are exquisitely played. --D. Isaac Stander
