The Pat Metheny Interviews by : Richard Niles

Pat Metheny is one of the most critically acclaimed; commercially successful; and musically significant artists of the last 50 years. He has not only revolutionized his instrument; but also changed the face of jazz itself.

In 2007; composer; arranger; and performer Richard Niles wrote and produced a three-part series of in-depth interviews for the BBC titled Pat Metheny – Bright Size Life. This book is comprised of these never-before-printed interviews and discussions with Metheny; whom Niles has known and worked with since 1974. In this series of intimate; in-depth interviews; Metheny

• reveals why he was driven toward music with a stratospheric drive and dedication

• uncovers the inner workings of his creative mind; showing step by step how he set and achieved each of his own demanding goals

• describes his methodology as a guitarist; improviser; and composer

• demonstrates his concepts and methodologies on the guitar. Niles has transcribed these unique musical performances for the book.

Some of Metheny's closest colleagues; including Lyle Mays; Gary Burton; Jack DeJohnette; John Patitucci; Metheny's brother Mike; and the late Michael Brecker; have contributed to the book; which also includes numerous photographs and a discography.
