“Pat Metheny is truly one of the most adventurous and creative talents in music…in any genre he chooses.” – Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson
Winner of an astonishing 20 Grammy awards, guitarist Pat Metheny first burst onto the international jazz scene in 1974. Over the course of a three-year stint with vibraphone great Gary Burton, Metheny honed his unique style — a way of playing and improvising that was modern in conception but grounded deeply in the jazz tradition of melody, swing, and the blues. Over the years, the endlessly creative musician has performed with artists as diverse as David Bowie, Ornette Coleman, Herbie Hancock, and Steve Reich.
This season, the NEA Jazz Master returns to the LOH stage with the latest iteration of his Side-Eye band: pianist/organist/keyboardist Chris Fishman and exciting young New Orleans drummer Joe Dyson. Together, they’ll play intricate new music alongside a few unexpected re-workings of Metheny’s classics.
