Imaginary Day is the ninth studio album by the Pat Metheny Group. It was released in 1997 by Warner Bros. The album overall was strongly inspired by world music from Iran and Indonesia, and won the 1999 Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Jazz Album. More than ever, the Pat Metheny Group is into creating thick, exotic, electronic sonic landscapes, and Imaginary Day goes even further out on the cutting edges of technology and global influences than its predecessors. The floating Metheny group signature is often present but with radically reworked textures, and Brazil seems to be off his international itinerary, replaced by whiffs of repetitive Iranian folk music, Balinese gamelan music, and other global influences. Indeed, Metheny only sounds something like his familiar soft-focused self on A Story Within the Story, playing what. Imaginary Day - Pat Metheny.

Perhaps the most recognizable guitarist on the scene, he's worked lately in free-improv contexts 1997's Sign of the Four, in gentle duets 1997's Short Stories, with Charlie Haden, and has continued to expand the sound and reach of his multiple-Grammy-winning Pat Metheny Group. Imaginary Day finds Metheny exploring world-music influences and orchestral colors and opening up new avenues for contemporary jazz. Follow Me, 05:56. Into the Dream, 02:27.
