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."
