    While this album's predecessor evidenced his accomplishment in the instrument's creation and operation, The Orchestrion Project reveals that Metheny's possibilities with it have only been tapped.

    Metheny conjures up a dense sonic tapestry comprising kaleidoscopic tone colours. [Mar 2013, p.94]

    The music that emerges from this contraption [orchestrion] is strangely haunting--antique and jangly, yet at the same time fresh, elegant and surprising.
