Pat Metheny Side Eye with James Francies & Nate Smith

In his SMF debut, renowned jazz guitarist Pat Metheny presents the first edition of “Side Eye”— a new playing environment that allows him to feature a rotating cast of up-and-coming musicians who have caught his eye. Metheny explains: “From my earliest days in Kansas City onward, I was the beneficiary of so many older musicians giving me a platform to develop my thing through the prism of their experience and the particular demands of what their music implied. I hear regularly from new players on the scene who have professed an influence from my records and tunes and I often invite them up to my house to play. And very often, it feels really natural and organic to play this music with them—music they have literally grown up with. I find myself inspired by how they deal with the musical challenges that come with the territory of some of those older tunes, and at the same time I find myself intrigued with the possibilities of writing music just for them. This new band setting is what that will be all about.”

Pat Metheny “An evening with Pat Metheny” – Festival de la Guitarra 2018

“…one has to admire Metheny’s chutzpah and ingenuity. One also has to acknowledge the blasts of searing energy, the pools of glorious melody and the lavishness of the textures.”
