Pat Metheny Group: The Roots of Coincidence


Sign in to view read count
This performance rocks out! What is unique about this video is seeing Lyle Mays stepping out from behind his keyboards to playing guitar alongside Pat Metheny. Who knew? Antonio Sanchez is a beast on the drums as well. Perhaps this clip is one to play for your "jazz-skeptic" friends who claim jazz is too smooth or sedate. Crank it up to eleven and break out the air guitar to play along.
