KJZZ staff and the Valley jazz community lost a true friend this week. Paul Anderson passed away unexpectedly Jan. 20.
Born in the midwest, Pat Metheny came from a trumpet playing family but just fell in love with the guitar. He changed the entire repertoire of guitar sounds used in jazz and created his own unique language and style. Metheny recorded Grammy winning CDs solo, with his combos, and with orchestras. Hear the other worldly tones of brilliant guitarist Pat Metheny tonight on the 9 o'clock Special.
