Pat Metheny Side Eye
Pat Metheny is die bevlogen stergitarist die je allicht kent van die hit met David Bowie: 'This Is Not America', maar hopelijk ook van zijn talloze spannende jazz-samenwerkingen.
Nu is het tijd voor zijn 'Side-Eye'-project en we lezen Pat best even zelf hierover:
'I wanted to create an ongoing setting to feature a rotating cast of new and upcoming musicians who have particularly caught my interest along the way.
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 have been feeling like I wanted to have a specific platform to focus on some of the many younger musicians I have enjoyed recently who I have felt some kind of a kinship with.'
En dus start hij 'Side-Eye' meteen met niemand minder dan toetsenist James Francies en drummer Marcus Gilmore.
