Hi jimmitchell,

Here's a fairly detailed biography of Pat Metheny:

Pat Metheny
..."Patrick Bruce Metheny (born August 12, 1954 in Lee's Summit,
Missouri) is a world renowned American jazz guitarist and leader of
the Pat Metheny Group.

Pat Metheny came onto the jazz scene in 1975 after joining Gary
Burton's band and then recording a trio record with Jaco Pastorius
called Bright Size Life. Metheny's next recording, 1977's Watercolors,
featured pianist Lyle Mays. Metheny's next album formalized this
partnership and began the Pat Metheny Group, featuring several songs
co-written with Mays; the album was released as the self-titled Pat
Metheny Group on the ECM record label. Pat Metheny also has released
notable solo, trio, quartet and duet recordings with musicians such as
Jim Hall, Dave Holland, Roy Haynes, Gary Burton, Chick Corea, Charlie
Haden, John Scofield, Jack DeJohnette, Herbie Hancock, Bill Stewart,
Ornette Coleman, and many others.

Pat Metheny has also joined projects of all kinds both as a player and
a writer, notably the record Song X with Ornette Coleman; Parallel
Realities; and Jazz Baltica, with Ulf Wakenius and other Nordic Jazz

Pat Metheny has been touring for more than 30 years, averaging 120-240
concerts a year. Metheny has written over 200 pieces and continues to
push musical limits in both his composition and performance..."

There's a LOT more at the link, for copyright reasons, I can only give
you a portion of it here.

Hope this helps!

"Mr. Metheny?s popularity jumped to a much higher level in 1979 with
his record ?American Garage.? For about 15 years afterward, he toured
almost constantly, with no roots other than an apartment in Boston
that kept the rain off of his answering machine. Now he lives in an
Upper West Side high rise, with his French-Moroccan wife, Latifa, and
their two young sons, Jeff Kaiis and Nicolas Djakeem."

I hope this helps.

Have a good day.
