Jazz Unlimited for Sunday, November 1, 2015 will be “The Music of Pat Metheny.” Since the late 1970’s, guitarist Pat Metheny has been a very popular figure in jazz, but he is much more than that. He is always experimenting with different guitars and ways of playing his instrument. Over his career, Metheny has played with the most advanced mainstream musicians of his day. In addition, we will play seven of his compositions by other musicians. Musicians and groups featured on this show include the Pat Metheny Group, Kurt Elling, Matt Wilson’s Arts and Crafts, the Pat Metheny-Brad Mehldau duo, the Pat Metheny-Charlie Haden duo, Tony Williams, Herbie Hancock, Michael Brecker, the Pat Metheny trio, Charlie Haden’s Quartet West, Gary Burton’s Like Minds, the Joshua Redman Quartet, Judy Niemack, Gonzalo Rubalcaba, the Roy Haynes Trio, the Liberation Music Orchestra, Jaco Pastorius and Ornette Coleman.
The Slide Show has my photographs of some of the musicians heard on this show.
The Archive for this show will be available until the morning of November 9, 2015.
