Dear All About Jazz Readers,

If you're familiar with All About Jazz, you know that we've dedicated over two decades to supporting jazz as an art form, and more importantly, the creative musicians who make it. Our enduring commitment has made All About Jazz one of the most culturally important websites of its kind in the world reaching hundreds of thousands of readers every month. However, to expand our offerings and develop new means to foster jazz discovery we need your help.

You can become a sustaining member for a modest $20 and in return, we'll immediately hide those pesky Google ads PLUS deliver exclusive content and provide access to future articles for a full year! This combination will not only improve your AAJ experience, it will allow us to continue to rigorously build on the great work we first started in 1995. Read on to view our project ideas...

Pat Metheny: Driving Forces

Ian Patterson By

Sign in to view read count
With line-ups old or new Metheny could conceivably mine and reinterpret his song book for the rest of his days, though that seems highly unlikely for a restless artist whose many Grammy nominations—and twenty outright Grammy Awards—have come in fields as diverse as jazz, jazz-fusion, rock, pop, country and New Age music. The music Metheny produces may change stylistically, as may the players, but one thing remains constant: "What never changes," says Metheny, "is that you have to keep your eye on the music and play every gig like it is the last time you will ever play."
