Pat Metheny at Caramoor's Jazz Festival
What a treat! The alumni club enjoyed 19-time Grammy Award Winner Pat Metheny, who was fantastic, playing some of his classics as well as pieces from his new album at Caramoor. A fterwards, a group of alums went to Willy Nick's for dinner in Katonah.
Pat Metheny is one of the most influential and creative guitar players around today. Throughout his career, he has performed with a diverse array of talent, including David Bowie, Herbie Hancock and Steve Reich. He is joined at Caramoor by an incredibly strong group of jazz performers for this special event.
