Product Description

This is a 5.0 marimba arrangement of Pat Metheny's solo baritone guitar rendition of "Last Train Home" as recorded on the album, "One Quiet Night." It is transposed up a minor third (to the key of Ab major from F major) in order to accommodate the lowest notes of the baritone guitar (A1) on the 5.0 marimba (C2). Perhaps someday someone will make a 5.3 octave version of this in Metheny's original key. During the pandemic, I have deliberately chosen to take a deeper look at some of the music that moves me deeply. When I was a kid my next neighbor, Bob Holt, happened to be the local college music professor. He introduced me to a lot of wonderful music, including Pat Metheny’s album “Still Life Talking,” which features the song, “Last Train Home.” In 2003, Metheny released a solo baritone guitar album, “One Quiet Night,” on which “Last Train Home” makes a re-appearance. I’ve always thought that this version of the tune would make a great marimba project.
