CCA Pre-performance lecture: Dan Barrett on Pat Metheny*

January 15, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Dan Barrett

CCA Pre-performance lecture with Dan Barrett on Pat Metheny.  The lecture is free and open to the public.

Following the lecture is the performance (An evening with Pat Metheny with Antonio Sanchez, Linda Oh and Gwilym Simcock), tickets for which can be purchased from the CCA online or on-site.

According to the Collins Center for the Arts’s event site:

Far more than a guitar legend, Pat Metheny is a brilliant builder of bands, and he opens the Fifth Anniversary season with his latest game-changing ensemble. Featuring a powerhouse international cast of players who’ve distinguished themselves on a multitude of creative fronts, the quartet continues Metheny’s groundbreaking run with Mexican-born drummer Antonio Sánchez. The motor for almost every Metheny project since the late 1990s, Sánchez reconfigured the Hollywood soundtrack landscape with his percussion-driven score for 2015’s Academy Award-winning film Birdman. When Linda Oh’s not leading her own band, the Malaysian-born, Australian-raised bassist works with heavyweights like Joe Lovano and Dave Douglas. And 35-year-old British pianist Gwilym Simcock is one of Europe’s most acclaimed and influential young musicians, equally in demand in jazz and classical settings as a player and composer. The quartet is just the latest sign that Metheny isn’t easing into his revered veteran status. Busier than ever these days, the 20-time Grammy winner recently released two new Nonesuch albums, and even did a sideman stint on rising sax star Logan Richardson’s Blue Note debut.
