Pat Metheny Side-Eye with James Francies and Joe Dyson

The undisputed contemporary master of the jazz guitar makes his long-awaited first appearance on the DACAMERA stage. As a teenager, legendary guitarist Pat Metheny regularly jammed with Kansas City’s best jazz musicians. That experience of sitting in with more mature players lead to his latest project, Side-Eye. Metheny says Side-Eye is meant to give a platform to “new and upcoming musicians who have particularly caught my interest.” Houston native pianist James Francies, equally at home in the worlds of jazz and R&B, and up-and-coming New Orleans native drummer Joe Dyson clearly fit the bill.

“That liquid, crystalline tone; those airborne, searching melodies. They’ve been part of the jazz conversation for decades” — NPR on Pat Metheny

The James K. Schooler Memorial Concert is an annual event recognizing the generous bequest of this loyal DACAMERA subscriber and supporter.
