Pat Metheny In-depth Biography

One of the most original guitarists from the '80s onward (he is instantly recognizable), Pat Metheny} is a chance-taking player who has gained great popularity but also taken some wild left turns. His records with the Pat Metheny Group} are difficult to describe (folk-jazz}? mood music}?) but managed to be both accessible and original, stretching the boundaries of jazz} and making Metheny} famous enough so he could perform whatever type of music he wants without losing his audience. Metheny} (whose older brother is the trumpeter Mike Metheny}) started on guitar when he was 13. He developed quickly, taught at both the University of Miami and Berklee while he was a teenager, and made his recording debut with Paul Bley} and Jaco Pastorius} in 1974. He spent an important period (1974-1977) with Gary Burton}'s group, met keyboardist Lyle Mays}, and in 1978 formed his group, which originally featured Mays}, bassist Mark Egan}, and drummer Dan Gottlieb}. Within a short period he was ECM}'s top artist and one of the most popular of all jazzmen, selling out stadiums. Metheny} mostly avoided playing predictable music, and his freelance projects were always quite interesting. His 1980 album 80/81} featured Dewey Redman} and Mike Brecker} in a post-bop} quintet; he teamed up with Charlie Haden} and Billy Higgins} on a trio date in 1983; and two years later recorded the very outside Song X} with Ornette Coleman}. Among Metheny}'s other projects away from the group were a sideman recording with Sonny Rollins}; a 1990 tour with Herbie Hancock} in a quartet; a trio album with Dave Holland} and Roy Haynes}; and a collaboration (and tour) with Joshua Redman}. Although his Zero Tolerance for Silence} in 1994 was largely a waste (40 minutes of feedback), Metheny} retained his popularity and remained a consistently creative performer. He has recorded as a leader for ECM} (starting in 1975), Geffen}, Warner Brothers}, and Nonesuch}. Metheny} remained active in the 21st century, releasing Speaking of Now} in 2002, the solo One Quiet Night} in 2003, Way Up} in 2005, and Metheny Mehldau} in 2006. ~ Scott Yanow, All Music Guide
