"One of the most industrious creative engines in jazz, and his relentless breadth has become a calling card, if not a selling point."

CAL PERFORMANCES IN OAKLAND
An Evening with Pat Metheny
with Antonio Sánchez, Linda May Han Oh, and Gwilym Simcock

With scores of original compositions and dozens of award-winning albums to his credit, 20-time Grammy winner and 2018 NEA Jazz Master Pat Metheny is a force of nature. The dazzling guitarist with an unmistakable sound is known for his broad and expressive range across a variety of guitars, from Gibson "archtop" and nylon-string to guitar synthesizer and the unique 42-string Pikasso. Metheny's fans also prize his uncanny ability to assemble a fantastic band—his latest all-star quartet finds him with longtime drummer Antonio Sánchez, rising star bassist Linda Oh, and versatile British pianist Gwilym Simcock.
