Richard Gürtler These "Pathways" are fully packed with perfection, it's an all-inclusive masterwork with top-notch sound quality that immediately deserves to be explored, experienced and celebrated. It's a piece of art masterfully connecting the visual and aural part. Bravo, Chad, Kari, Francesca and Michal!!! The first two big steps were already made with previous two albums, now with "Pathways", Chad Kettering achieves the pedestal of grandiosely epic cinematic soundsculpting!!!

Grandiose orchestral passages combine with modern electronic ambiences establishing a new sound to Kettering's repertoire. With Pathways a more melodic approach is taken throughout the album to convey a positive perspective to the complex journey of life. Beautiful solo contributions are made by cellist Kari Kettering of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra and vocalist Francesca Genco. After a 20 year hiatus from playing trumpet, Kettering returns to the instrument in a special song featured at the end of the album.
