PAT METHENY was born in Lee's Summit, MO on August 12, 1954 into a musical family.

Starting on trumpet at the age of 8, Metheny switched to guitar at age 12. By the age of 15, he

was working regularly with the best jazz musicians in Kansas City, receiving valuable on-the

bandstand experience at an unusually young age. Metheny first burst onto the international jazz

scene in 1974. Over the course of his three-year stint with vibraphone great Gary Burton, the

young Missouri native already displayed his soon-to-become trademarked playing style, which

blended the loose and flexible articulation customarily reserved for horn players with an

advanced rhythmic and harmonic sensibility -a way of playing and improvising that was modern

in conception but grounded deeply in the jazz tradition of melody, swing, and the blues. With the

release of his first album, Bright Size Life (1975), he reinvented the traditional "jazz guitar"

sound for a new generation of players. Throughout his career, Pat Metheny has continued to

redefine the genre by utilizing new technology and constantly working to evolve the

improvisational and sonic potential of his instrument.

Metheny's versatility is nearly without peer on any instrument. Over the years, he has performed

with artists as diverse as Steve Reich to Ornette Coleman to Herbie Hancock to Jim Hall to

Milton Nascimento to David Bowie. Metheny’s body of work includes compositions for solo

guitar, small ensembles, electric and acoustic instruments, large orchestras, and ballet pieces and

even the robotic instruments of his Orchestrion project, while always sidestepping the limits of

any one genre.

As well as being an accomplished musician, Metheny has also participated in the academic arena

as a music educator. At 18, he was the youngest teacher ever at the University of Miami. At 19,

he became the youngest teacher ever at the Berklee College of Music, where he also received an

honorary doctorate more than twenty years later (1996). He has also taught music workshops all

over the world, from the Dutch Royal Conservatory to the Thelonius Monk Institute of Jazz to

clinics in Asia and South America. He has also been a true musical pioneer in the realm of

electronic music, and was one of the very first jazz musicians to treat the synthesizer as a serious

musical instrument. Years before the invention of MIDI technology, Metheny was using the

Synclavier as a composing tool. He also has been instrumental in the development of several

new kinds of guitars such as the soprano acoustic guitar, the 42-string Pikasso guitar, Ibanez’s


PM series jazz guitars, and a variety of other custom instruments.

It is one thing to attain popularity as a musician, but it is another to receive the kind of acclaim

Metheny has garnered from critics and peers. Over the years, Metheny has won countless polls

as "Best Jazz Guitarist" and awards, including three gold records for (Still Life) Talking, Letter

from Home, and Secret Story. He has also won 20 Grammy Awards spread out over a variety of

different categories including Best Rock Instrumental, Best Contemporary Jazz Recording, Best

Jazz Instrumental Solo, Best Instrumental Composition at one point winning seven consecutive

Grammies for seven consecutive albums. In 2015 he was inducted into the Downbeat Hall of

Fame, becoming only the fourth guitarist to be included (along with Django Reinhardt, Charlie

Chrisitan and Wes Montgomery) and it’s youngest member. Metheny has spent much of his life

on tour, often doing more than 100 shows a year since becoming a bandleader in the 70’s. At the

time of this writing, he continues to be one of the brightest stars of the jazz community,

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.
