About Pat Metheny
PAT METHENY was born in Lee’s Summit, MO on August 12, 1954 into a musical family. Starting on trumpet at the age of 8, Metheny switched to guitar at age 12. By the age of 15, he was working regularly with the best jazz musicians in Kansas City, receiving valuable on-the bandstand experience at an unusually young age. Metheny first burst onto the international jazz scene in 1974. Over the course of his three-year stint with vibraphone great Gary Burton, the young Missouri native already displayed his soon-to-become trademarked playing style, which blended the loose and flexible articulation customarily reserved for horn players with an advanced rhythmic and harmonic sensibility -a way of playing and improvising that was modern in conception but grounded deeply in the jazz tradition of melody, swing, and the blues. With the release of his first album, Bright Size Life (1975), he reinvented the traditional “jazz guitar” sound for a new generation of players. Throughout his career, Pat Metheny has continued to redefine the genre by utilizing new technology and constantly working to evolve the improvisational and sonic potential of his instrument. Metheny’s versatility is nearly without peer on any instrument. Over the years, he has performed with artists as diverse as Steve Reich to Ornette Coleman to Herbie Hancock to Jim Hall to Milton Nascimento to David Bowie. Metheny’s body of work includes compositions for solo guitar, small ensembles, electric and acoustic instruments, large orchestras, and ballet pieces and even the robotic instruments of his Orchestrion project, while always sidestepping the limits of any one genre. As well as being an accomplished musician, Metheny has also participated in the academic arena as a music educator. At 18, he was the youngest teacher ever at the University of Miami. At 19, he became the youngest teacher ever at the Berklee College of Music, where he also received an honorary doctorate more than twenty years later (1996). He has also taught music workshops all over the world, from the Dutch Royal Conservatory to the Thelonius Monk Institute of Jazz to clinics in Asia and South America. He has also been a true musical pioneer in the realm of electronic music, and was one of the very first jazz musicians to treat the synthesizer as a serious musical instrument. Years before the invention of MIDI technology, Metheny was using the Synclavier as a composing tool. He also has been instrumental in the development of several new kinds of guitars such as the soprano acoustic guitar, the 42-string Pikasso guitar, Ibanez’s PM series jazz guitars, and a variety of other custom instruments. It is one thing to attain popularity as a musician, but it is another to receive the kind of acclaim Metheny has garnered from critics and peers. Over the years, Metheny has won countless polls as “Best Jazz Guitarist” and awards, including three gold records for (Still Life) Talking, Letter from Home, and Secret Story. He has also won 20 Grammy Awards spread out over a variety of different categories including Best Rock Instrumental, Best Contemporary Jazz Recording, Best Jazz Instrumental Solo, Best Instrumental Composition at one point winning seven consecutive Grammies for seven consecutive albums. In 2015 he was inducted into the Downbeat Hall of Fame, becoming only the fourth guitarist to be included (along with Django Reinhardt, Charlie Chrisitan and Wes Montgomery) and it’s youngest member. Metheny has spent much of his life on tour, often doing more than 100 shows a year since becoming a bandleader in the 70’s. At the time of this writing, he continues to be one of the brightest stars of the jazz community, dedicating time to both his own projects and those of emerging artists and established veterans alike, helping them to reach their audience as well as realizing their own artistic visions.

Typical Pat Metheny... Bringing brilliant music and musicianship in a world in desperate need for it. Not only one of the finest musicians of his generation, but bringing along the next great players. Most shining tonight especially Antonio Sanchez (as always) and Linda May Han Oh who was the brand new to me and a revelation... At times channeling Eberhard Weber during some of the really early music. Simcock was solid. Finally... WHERE can I get a recording of Antonio & Pat's duo?! THAT was amazing and frustratingly recognizable but just out of my recall. Thanks for a memorable fifth show for me, Pat. Bring the PMG to Portland next!!!!

I didn't attend the Nashua, NH show, but did attend the Beverly, MA show the night before and it blew my socks off!!!!! I'm still on a high from the powerful and magical collaboration between Pat Metheny, Joe Dyson and Chris Fishman. AMAZING!!!!!!!! I am so happy to be in the world where Pat Metheny creates and performs and showcases up and coming musicians. What a master he is. I not only LOVE, LOVE, LOVE his music but I also have a tremendous amount of respect for him as a human being. Looking forward to seeing him again June 24th at the Beacon in NYC.

As with Antonio Sanchez, I rate this concert a full 5 stars (although the 5th star won’t fill in completely). Pat Metheny is my all-time favorite musician. His creativity and rich body of work coupled with his willingness to explore across genres and technologies while maintaining what tugs the listeners’ heartstrings cements my 40-year adoration of this 20-time Grammy winner. This concert was tight & raw simultaneously. Hearing Pat’s old beloved tunes was a delight, but hearing them played with a different twist with the illustrious musicianship of Antonio Sanchez, Linda May Han Oh & Gwilym Simcock kicked it all to new heights. I’m still hanging on the ceiling.

I have been a fan of Pat Metheny since I first heard his music in summer of 1978. He has and always has been as incredibly-gifted musician. At his Lobero Theater concert on October 30, 2023, I sat in the 5th row, left side and could see and hear all that Pat had to offer. Once again, his playing was absolutely stellar! I have seen Pat play live six times over the years, playing within different contexts, but always displaying his exceptional abilities and creativity. I wish I could meet him and chat at least once before my days on this earth are finished.

I (we - 8 of us) have never seen a show so moving and stellar in years, probably decades. We were lucky enough to get front row seats dead center, we could see everything and that added to the thrill. There is a sound that is completely "Pat Metheny" you know it straight out of the box. So refreshing, passionate and heartfelt. I don't want to spoil the show for others, so I won't say much more than find your own passion by going to the "Dream Box" show if you can. You will want to be able to say that you were there for your children's children.

Pat Metheny is a musical genius. He always surrounds himself with the most top musicians as well. Every performer and performance was stellar. He dedicated this concert to many of his older tunes in which die hard fans ( such as myself) would recognize and greatly appreciate. He was generous with his time by playing for over 2 1/2 hours, doing two encores! My favorite moment was when he did a solo medley of some of his most recognizable and beautiful compositions. It was one of the best concerts I have ever attended. I loved the venue as well. I didn’t want the evening to end.

Loved the show. Pat was fantastic as always. Another virtuoso performance. The talking was awesome. To think none of this would have happened if his older brother hadn’t turned him on to Miles Davis … I thought he said “Miles In The Sky” but I forget already. And the recent baritone guitar stuff would never have happened without the instrument maker and country music guy down the street in Lees Summit, MO! Crazy stuff. The music was just great, all the guitars, the 42 stringer, the orchestion. The dude is alone, unique in the world. We are so fortunate. Brilliant.

Old favs and fancy techniques merged into spellbinding magical solo performance. Looping used to great effect, and orchestrion made a couple of luscious appearances. Sadly not sold out, and very subdued audience. Quite a contrast from past shows in Toronto, Luxembourg and London which were always packed and always met a rapturous reception. Reflected back a bit to Pat who seemed to fade a bit near the end. Inconsiderate fan in front of us diminished our by insisting on videoing the last 4 songs despite being asked not too. Thanks, jerk!

I've seen Pat Metheny 7 times, and each one has been a highlight of my live music experiences. Metheny is one of the most creative writers and players of all time, and it's incredible how each tour has a completely different sound, vibe, and creative spark to it. He is a true master of technical skill and musicality, and plays music rich with emotive force. Even if you are not a fan of traditional jazz, I highly recommend you attend one of his shows at some point. It may just change how you see music.

Pat and his two piece band of brotha s were absolutely fantastic! The best ensemble of musicians I believe he has ever been around and that is saying a lot given his massive collection of talented artist. Love how he blended in the old stuff, offering a different spin, speed, and tempo to each song. This band I hope stays together for a long time because they are truly masters, love and appreciate Pat and the music he has created. I will be at the Tampa show on the 20th!!!
