Making the most of Metheny

Jazz and the “megastar” epithet do not generally make for natural bedfellows. However, if you were to single out the odd artist from improvisational musical climes, Pat Metheny would definitely be a strong candidate for official stellar status.

The 61-year-old American jazz guitarist will return to Israel for three shows this month, with gigs lined up at the Zappa Herzliya club (June 13 and 14, doors open 8:15 p.m.) and Live Park in Rishon Lezion (June 15, doors open 8 p.m.).

Metheny’s current multinational band includes classically trained British pianist Gwilym Simcock, Malaysian-born bassist Linda Oh and Mexican drummer Antonio Sanchez.
