Since Pat Metheny will be playing locally at the Strand Theatre this week, I'm going to play some music by him. Although they didn't record any albums together, Paul Motian did tour with Pat Metheny so I'll do some readings from Paul's datebooks of that time and some other recordings of Paul's from 1980.
