Pat Metheny started things off auspiciously on February 21 with his first new release in six years, From This Place.
Then, on March 6, Eric Johnson debuted his latest album, EJ Vol. II.
Next, both Joe Satriani’s Shapeshifting and Paul Speer’s Sonoran Odyssey, his first album in seven years, come out April 10.
With all this great guitar music in just the first four months of 2020, one can only hope that the legendary Andy Summers has something in the pipeline this year as well.
It would also be nice to see more unreleased material from the late, great Allan Holdsworth, and maybe, finally, the eventual completion of his final, unfinished original studio album.
