Malaysian/Australian bassist Linda May Han Oh has been extremely active on the New York scene for the past few years, playing with many of the major musicians in the community. Metheny continues “I love to follow who the new players around town and I go out often to check out what everyone is doing. The first time I heard Linda, she immediately went to the top of my list of candidates. She has everything I always am looking for; great time, great notes and a lot of imagination. But the most important thing I am always searching for in any musician is an elusive and hard to describe quality that embodies a certain communicative ability to connect - not just to the other musicians, but to the audience as well. Linda has that. When we got together, she was so easy to play with. She went on to tell me how much she had been affected as a young player by my record Question and Answer and a few others, which is incredibly gratifying for me. I am really excited to get the chance to play with Linda.”

Rounding out the ensemble is British pianist Gwilym Simcock, one of the most exciting new pianists to emerge from the UK in many years. Metheny: “I first heard about Gwilym on a trip to London a few years back when someone at a radio station gave me his debut record while mentioning to me that he had often spoken of his interest in this music having been sparked by his exposure to one of my early records, again one of the most flattering things imaginable. When I listened to his CD, I became an instant fan; Gwilym is simply one of the best piano players I have heard in a long, long time. After trying to find time to get together over a number of years, in 2014 I was finally able to stay over after a gig in London do some playing. We had planned on getting together for a few hours or so, but wound up playing continuously for an entire afternoon. It was absolutely incredible what we were able to get to so quickly. I have only ever had that kind of communication and ease of playing with another musician a handful of times over the years to that degree. I am so excited to get the chance to play with Gwilym and there seems to be enormous potential there for us to develop a really unique way of playing together.”

Very few guitarists had the kind of influence Pat Metheny had on me (Allan Holdsworth and Joe Pass come to mind as being in that category). To celebrate his birthday I put together a playlist of some of his tunes I cover for solo guitar. Hit "Play" once and you will see/hear: Slip Away, Follow Me, Dream of the Return, Travels, Every Summer Night and So May It Secretly Begin. Enjoy and share! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=etfAQZATLLw&list=PLhi9h5v-JCDCkkRFeJ8sDbtsSUdH8BXeY
