Touring on his latest release, The Unity Sessions (Nonesuch)  is comprised of a filmed performance with Pat Metheny Unity Group and recently released on DVD; the set includes 13 songs by Metheny. Tonight he joined the crowded halls of the Knight Theater in Charlotte, NC to treat fans to the 4th generation musicianship packed set.

His style meshes elements of Latin, progressive, contemporary, and jazz fusion. With the list of releases you can hear all the different elements he has married with the artists he has featured on each album. Thus, helping to accent his talent and bring you further into the music elements that are pressed in his bones.

Have a small recap of the family lineage wrapped within the Lee’s Summit roots dating back to 1915: his great grandfather landed in Lee Summit, Missouri where he grew a musical foundation for his family to help artists through the decades. This included a theater, a motor company, and more family members within the musical community than an orchestra! Fast forward to now: I’m convinced his blood runs red and musical notes swim with glee freely within the streams. A guitar an extension of his own heart, when he strums so eloquently you do nothing but get lost in the serenade,

His passion to help music flourish is seen within his charity work for students of the arts. He and his brother Mike are on the board of The Metheny Music Foundation which helps with the preservation of the musical climate of yesteryears as well as the future. They give out scholarships to deserving students who want to study any instrument or element of the musical arts. In what is happening with the possible loss of the National Endowment for the Arts, places like these organizations are imperative to the future of our young musicians.
