Pat Metheny Background

Kansas City native Pat Metheny initially started with the trumpet as his musical instrument of choice at the age of 8. He did not pick up the guitar until he was 12. He took to the guitar very quickly and his extraordinary virtuosity led him to even teaching others how to play the instrument at the Berklee College Of Music in Boston and at the University of Miami. He collaborated with vibraphone genius Gary Burton in 1974, with contributions to three of Burton's albums, offering some Wes Montgomery-inspired guitar arrangements. Manfred Eicher, ECM Records, took notice and began a partnership that spanned 10 albums. Those albums consistently yielded top placements on the jazz record charts.

Metheny has also managed to successfully cross over to the pop album charts, validating the accessibility of his brand of music.

Metheny's early album releases were Bright Size Life (1975) and Watercolors (1977). With Bright Size Life, he redefined the traditional jazz guitar sound for a new group of players.His own individualistic style shined through with the Pat Metheny Group (1978). Along with his musical partner, remarkable keyboard player Lyle Mays, Metheny crafted a rock band format that generated several albums of euphonious jazz rock. New Chautauqua, a 1979 solo set, arrived after Metheny completed a major tour with Joni Mitchell and Pastorius. The album showcased his extraordinary dexterity on the 12-string guitar. The album also muscled its way into the U.S. Top 50. He came back to the electric band style for American Garage (1980), which featured the country-tinged, "Cross The Heartland." His double set 80/81 included Jack DeJohnette, Michael Brecker, Dewey Redman and Charlie Haden. Also during this point of his career, Metheny won multiple guitarist and jazz polls.

Metheny eventually became captivated by the musical potential of the synclavier or guitar synthesizer. He put it to use on Offramp (1982).

Throughout the remainder of the '80s and into the '90s, Metheny continuously reinvented himself. He utilizes state-of-the-art technology and consistently works to advance the sonic and improvisational possibilities of his instrument.
