Pat Metheny: Side Eye


Venue Matthews Theatre


With the debut of his first album in 1975, Pat Metheny reinvented the traditional "jazz guitar" sound for a new generation of players. Throughout his career, Metheny has continued to redefine the genre by utilizing new technology and constantly working to evolve the improvisational and sonic potential of his instrument.

Over the years, he has performed with artists as diverse as Steve Reich, Ornette Coleman, Herbie Hancock, Jim Hall, Milton Nascimento, and David Bowie. Metheny’s body of work includes compositions for solo guitar, small ensembles, electric and acoustic instruments, large orchestras, ballet pieces, and even the robotic instruments of his Orchestrion project, while always sidestepping the limits of any one genre.

Side Eye is Pat Metheny’s latest musical project: a new playing environment that features a rotating cast of new and upcoming musicians that have particularly caught his interest along the way. This performance at McCarter will feature James Francies (keyboard, piano) and drummer Nate Smith.
