I recently discovered a great book on Jazz guitarists, Voices In Jazz Guitar by Joe Barth. Very extensive interviews with most of the guitarists currently performing. I really enjoyed the Pat Metheny chapter. Topics included favorite recordings (own and other guitarists or musicians, technical details and much more. Chapter on Gary Burton and his favorite guitar players talks a lot about Pat. Great read and highly recommended. May be hard to locate a copy, but worth the chase.

Bookmark and Share Gary Burton’s chapter is an excellent read as he talks a lot about Pat. He has had many great guitarists in his band from Larry Coryell to Julian Lage. Gary and Pat had a very special relationship and Pat said that being in Gary ’s band meant the world to him. I spoke to Gary after a gig in Chicago and when I mentioned that Pat told me he learned a lot from Gary, Gary said he learned a lot from Pat. The book is worth finding and is a great read.

Bookmark and Share If you check out the Index, Pat is probably listed the most and mentioned by other guitarists as an influence or in their top three Jazz recordings. Check it out.
