KJZZ staff and the Valley jazz community lost a true friend this week. Paul Anderson passed away unexpectedly Jan. 20.
Guitarist Pat Metheny has always been an innovator. Although he studied Wes Montgomery and Joe Pass, he is self taught and moved from straight ahead bebop to his own ethereal sound. His style is unmistakable whether he plays alone, with an orchestra or with synthesizers. Hear the many forms that Metheny takes when we feature his music tonight on the 9 O'clock Special. Jazz awakes at 8!
