Winner of 20 Grammy Awards, guitarist Pat Metheny is making a special visit to Hull Jazz Festival as part of his 2017 world tour, and to celebrate Hull UK City of Culture 2017 and Hull Jazz Festival’s 25th anniversary. The invention and energy of Pat Metheny’s music continues to shine, always searching for new sounds and ideas whilst retaining the melodic force and free-wheeling, joyous drive that’s been his hallmark since he took the jazz world by storm in the 1970s. In this brand new quartet, his unmistakeable guitar style is matched with two stellar talents from a new generation, with UK pianist Gwilym Simcock joining the brilliant bassist Linda Oh and long-time Metheny sidekick, drummer Antonio Sanchez, in a band that positively exudes class. With the release of his first album, Bright Size Life, in 1975, he reinvented the traditional jazz guitar sound for a new generation of players. Over the years, he’s performed with artists as diverse as Steve Reich to Ornette Coleman, Herbie Hancock to David Bowie. Recently inducted into the Downbeat Hall of Fame as its youngest member, and only the fourth guitarist (joining Django Reinhardt, Charlie Christian and Wes Montgomery), Metheny will present a range of music from throughout his career. Early booking advised.
