On "The Road Home", jazz guitarist Pat Kelley surrounds himself with some of the greatest musicians in the world such as John Patitucci, Gary Novak, Tim Landers, Gary Herbig, David Witham, Michael Shapiro, and more.
After touring for five years with George Benson, George wrote the back cover liner notes which read:
"Pat's latest effort shows his versatility and why he is so likeable and easy to work with. I'm glad to see that Pat is expressing himself through the jazz medium which he loves. Pats chops allow him to move about with ease and freedom and show his musical experiences to be broad. I even enjoy his vocals here and I am sure you will too. If this isn't enough, Pat has surrounded himself with nothing less that some of the best musicians around today. Right on Pat!"
