One of the most enterprising jazz musicians of his generation, Pat Metheny has 18 Grammy Awards in 12 categories, more than any artist in Grammy history. He also has three Gold Records and numerous readers' poll awards. Metheny has performed with artists as diverse as Steve Reich, Ornette Coleman, Herbie Hancock, Jim Hall, Charlie Haden and David Bowie. His body of work includes compositions for solo guitar, small ensembles, electric and acoustic instruments, large orchestras and ballet pieces, with settings ranging from modern jazz to rock to classical to his latest creation, the Orchestrion.

Legendary jazz guitarist Pat Metheny will compose original soundtracks for the Legacy Project's 2-hour public television program, Becoming California, and its initial set of five regional films created for state and national parks across California. Together, these programs are anticipated to reach millions of PBS viewers and visitors to the state's parks.

 

"I'm excited to find a musical language to give voice to the great assembling of California."

-Pat Metheny
