With James Francies and Marcus Gilmore

In 2005, Krannert Center’s very own guitar festival was taking shape for the first time, and jazz icon Pat Metheny made his third visit to the Center’s stages. Fourteen years later, this National Endowment for the Arts Jazz Master returns with young jazz frontrunners for a musical incarnation called “Side-Eye”—a product of Metheny’s interest in collaborating with next-generation players that includes a changing lineup of musicians. The ever-revolutionary musical influencer, Metheny has enjoyed an astounding career that includes seven consecutive—and 20 overall—Grammy Awards, including wins in an unprecedented 10 different categories. Don’t miss this explosive set!
