He is a musician, not a pop artist

Shocked to see some of the reviews posted here! This man is a jazz musician, and the very lifeblood of jazz is improvisation, change and expanded boundaries. If you want to be able to sing-along-with-Pat-'n-Lyle, break out the old albums and enjoy! But he is a musician on a lifelong journey and although it is our choice to jump off at the points we love, it is not ours to take over his driving seat.

In for the long run, sir.

I've been quite happy to take anything Pat Metheny has to offer, and in any format. Some of it I'm not so much a fan of, some is wonderful. I saw him in Portland on the Orchestrion tour and it didn't move me, although it was interesting. But organisms evolve. The music some of you are pining for was made almost thirty years ago. Do you really expect the man to repeat himself? The records will always be there. People like Metheny, if they get bored their art turns to crap.

Keep Growing.....

And pushing the limits. That's what music is all about, if you continue living in the past wanting the same type of stuff that was done, you are not growing with him. Playing with the group is great, it's a familiar sound, it's comforting. This is outside of the box, different. I say keep doing what you're doing, either grow with you or get left behind.

One of the most original guitarists from the '80s onward (he is instantly recognizable), Pat Metheny is a chance-taking player who has gained great popularity but also taken some wild left turns. His records with the Pat Metheny Group are difficult to describe (folk-jazz? mood music?) but manage to be both accessible and original, stretching the boundaries of jazz and making Metheny famous enough that he could perform whatever type of music he wanted without losing his audience. Metheny (whose...
