NEA Jazz Master and 20-time Grammy-winning guitar icon Pat Metheny has unveiled the latest chapter in his wildly prolific career – Side-Eye, a new project featuring a handpicked cast of players – some of the most exciting and innovative new musicians on the New York scene.
Metheny is returning to the road this fall with a live version of Side-Eye that will feature the phenomenally talented pianist, organist and keyboardist James Francies and the exciting young New Orleans drummer, Joe Dyson.
This is the latest in an unmatched run of eclecticism from Metheny, whose most recent albums include From This Place, named Downbeat’s Jazz Record of the Year for 2020, and March 2021’s multi-movement classical guitar suite Road To The Sun – which the Wall Street Journal’s Allan Kozinn hailed as “beautifully nuanced” and “presenting significant additions to the solo, ensemble and transcription repertory.” Metheny is the only musician ever to win Grammy awards in twelve different musical categories. Widely sought out amongst sonic worlds for decades, his collaborators on past projects have included Steve Reich, Ornette Coleman, Herbie Hancock and David Bowie.
