Guitarist/composer Pat Metheny has always loved to jam with those who could match his unending enthusiasm, inventiveness and chops. To that end, he's performed/recorded with the likes of Ornette Coleman, Steve Reich, Charlie Haden and Brad Mehldau. Now, the Cuong Vu Trio 'Meets Pat Metheny' (Nonesuch) on a dense seven-track meandering adventure.
2015 was a banner year for jazz guitarist Pat Metheny. The highlight was his stint as Musician-in-Residence at the Detroit Jazz Festival. In an effort to keep his string of good luck going, Metheny is putting the finishing touches on two new albums, The Unity Sessions and Cuong Vu Meets Pat Metheny. Both are scheduled to drop on May 6th.
