Jazz at the Lobero presents Pat Metheny Side-Eye
Jazz at the Lobero welcomes Pat Metheny Side-Eye to the Lobero Theatre on Wednesday, September 29 at 8 PM. Receiving great acclaim for his recent classical guitar album Road to the Sun, Metheny is set to dive back into his beloved trio format. Renowned as one of the brightest stars of the jazz community, Metheny will be joined onstage by two of the hottest young musicians on the scene, James Francies (keyboards, piano) and Joe Dyson (drums). The trio will be performing music from across Pat Metheny's massive career as well as new material unique to this live band.
“Pat Metheny’s fascinating odyssey through music continues.” – Jazzwise
Metheny's versatility is nearly without peer on any instrument. Over the years, he has performed with artists as diverse as Steve Reich to Herbie Hancock to David Bowie. Following Metheny’s move to BMG/Modern Records, the latest chapter in the guitar guru’s extraordinary career continues. The GRAMMY® Award winner is 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.
Pat explains “I wanted to create an ongoing setting to feature a rotating cast of new and upcoming musicians who have particularly caught my interest along the way.” Pat continues “From my earliest days in Kansas City onward, I was the beneficiary of so many older musicians giving me a platform to develop my thing through the prism of their experience and the particular demands of what their music implied. I have been feeling like I wanted to have a specific platform to focus on some of the many younger musicians I have enjoyed recently who I have felt some kind of a kinship with.”
