    Pat Metheny Talks with BBC Radio 2's Jamie Cullum; New Album Earns Five Stars from BBC Music Magazine
    Jimmy Katz

    Pat Metheny will be the guest on this week's episode of BBC Radio 2's Jamie Cullum show, airing tonight at 7 PM GMT. In this hour-long special, Metheny talks with Cullum about his extensive career and its impact on the role of guitar in jazz. Tune in this evening on BBC Radio 2 and online at bbc.co.uk.

    Metheny's latest album, What's It All About, released earlier this summer on Nonesuch Records, earns a perfect five stars in the latest issue of BBC Music magazine. The solo acoustic album features classic tunes from songwriters like Paul Simon, Lennon & McCartney, Burt Bacharach, and Henry Mancini.

    "Pat Metheny's substantial fanbase is divided between those that adore him for his sweet, sentimental way and others that admire his technical virtuosity," writes BBC Music reviewer Garry Booth. "Laymen and players alike will love this personal solo album from their personable hero."

    Metheny also spoke with the magazine's Oliver Condy about the new album for an interview that's now available on the magazine's site, classical-music.com.

    To pick up a copy of What's It All About, head to the Nonesuch Store, where CD and vinyl orders include high-quality, 320 kbps MP3s at checkout.

    Pat Metheny leads a five-day summer music workshop at the Spa at Norwich Inn in Norwich, Connecticut, later this month, offering a rare opportunity to study in an intimate setting with Pat and his trio, Christian McBride and Antonio Sanchez. He launches a tour with bassist Larry Grenadier in September. For more information, visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.

    Tristan Perich’s Drift Multiply, for 50 violins and 50-channel 1-bit electronics, will be released November 13, 2020, on New Amsterdam and Nonesuch Records, and is available to preorder now. The piece, Perich’s largest work to date, is conducted by Douglas Perkins. Scored as one hundred individual lines of music, the piece blends violins and speakers into a cascading tapestry of tone, harmony, and noise. The violins perform from sheet music, while the speakers are each connected to custom-built circuit boards programmed to output 1-bit audio, the most basic digital waveforms made of just ones and zeroes.
