Bright Size Legend


U.S. News and World Report has a great interview with guitarist Pat Metheny, touching on his thoughts on jazz’s history, present and future. The article runs contemporaneously with the PBS Legends of Jazz series hosted by Ramsey Lewis (Metheny appears with veteran Jim Hall, who has made significant innovations in jazz guitar concepts himself). Check out the video clips of Metheny and Hall and find out where you can watch the series.

And though it's old news, I’d enthusiastically like to add that Nonesuch has reissued Metheny’s much sought-after Still Life (Talking).

    How pleased I was to pick up "Still Life (Talking)" when I went to Sound of Market last week. "Last Train Home" is one of my all-time favorites and I was thrilled to have it available again, at long last.
