Pat Matheny

Mark, how did you know that I am a Pat Matheny fan? I go to bed almost every night with Pat Matheny. And you're right. This is definitely a candidate for the theme song of this trek.



One of the greatest concerts I ever saw at Hancher Auditorium, now deceased, was The Pat Matheny Group. If I think for awhile, I will remember which album he was promoting at the time.

The album I was trying to think of was Letter from Home. I did have to cheat and go to www.allmusic.com

I adore Metheny too... my favourite is Beyon the Missoouri Sky with Charlie Haden

O.K., this is going to sound like I'm bragging, but it's too fun not to say. We actually saw Pat Metheny in Lisbon, Portugal some years ago while we were traveling. The Portuguese fans loved him and it was a great performance. Also, have you seen the dvd Shadows and Light, Joni Mitchell performing with Pat Metheny and The Persuasions? It's outstanding.

Joni with Pat Metheny - wow! I'll check that one out too.

I'll see your brag and raise you....

I've seen him a few times in the UK - astounding, also John McLoughlin likewise. Beautiful music, must go play some..mmmm.mmm

But it's perfectly all right to brag about that, Barb. How cool! I love the sound of this thing with Joni Mitchell you are describing, don't you, Sheila?

Sounds an interesting mix and I've still to check it out

I saw that show also and concur with you evaluation (I still have that T-shirt around somewhere). I saw him year ago or so ago, again at Hancher, however it was the Pat Metheny Trio and show was almost exclusively his work in the free-style genre, which for some reason I don't appreciate. I have just returned from St. Louis where I saw the Yellow Jackets in a little 100 seater, hot, hot, hot.
