“Mr. Metheny is one of the most industrious creative engines in jazz, and his relentless breadth has become a calling card, if not a selling point, among his fans.” —The New York Times
CAP UCLA is thrilled to welcome back jazz guitarist Pat Metheny for one night only. Metheny’s versatility is legendary. His body of work traverses a wide array of styles, while always sidestepping the limits of any one genre.
Over the years, he has performed with artists as diverse as Steve Reich, Herbie Hancock, Milton Nascimento and David Bowie. Metheny has won countless accolades, including twenty Grammys, three gold records and too many “Best Jazz Guitarist” polls to count. Recently inducted into the Downbeat Hall of Fame as its youngest member and only the fourth guitarist, Metheny will present a range of music from throughout his career.
He will be joined at Royce Hall by an all-star lineup including percussionist Antonio Sanchez, bassist Linda May Han Oh and keyboardist Gwilym Simcock.
