Limited 180 gram audiophile vinyl LP pressing of this album from the veteran jazz guitarist. Offramp is the Grammy Award winning third album by Pat Metheny Group, released in 1982. The album won the Grammy Award for Best Jazz Fusion Performance in 1983. It is well known for containing the group's signature song, the jazz fusion ballad 'Are You Going With Me?' Offramp is the first studio recording on which Metheny used a guitar synthesizer (a Roland GR-300) controlled with a Roland G-303 guitar synthesizer controller Metheny first emerged on the jazz scene in the mid-1970s with a pair of solo albums. Despite the common description of Metheny's music as "fusion," it was always his intention to create improvised music that had a greater emphasis on bringing out harmony than anything common to what was called "fusion" of the time.
