Présentation de l'éditeur

(Book). Pat Metheny is one of the most critically acclaimed, commercially successful, and musically significant artists of the last 50 years. He has not only revolutionized his instrument, but also changed the face of jazz itself. In 2007, composer, arranger, and performer Richard Niles wrote and produced a three-part series of in-depth interviews for the BBC titled Pat Metheny Bright Size Life . This book is comprised of these never-before-printed interviews and discussions with Metheny, whom Niles has known and worked with since 1974. In this series of intimate, in-depth interviews, Metheny * reveals why he was driven toward music with a stratospheric drive and dedication * uncovers the inner workings of his creative mind, showing step by step how he set and achieved each of his own demanding goals * describes his methodology as a guitarist, improviser, and composer * demonstrates his concepts and methodologies on the guitar. Niles has transcribed these unique musical performances for the book. Some of Metheny's closest colleagues, including Lyle Mays, Gary Burton, Jack DeJohnette, John Patitucci, Metheny's brother Mike, and the late Michael Brecker, have contributed to the book, which also includes numerous photographs and a discography.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Une approche presque spirituelle de la musique 25 avril 2010
Par jeffroi
J'ai connu ce recueil d'interview par bouche à oreille et c'est une très bonne lecture. Il propose des anecdotes et le point de vu parfois radicale, mais toujours inspirant, d'un des grand maître de la six-cordes.

This book is written by one of the best musicologists in the business. Niles has been interviewing many of the great people in the current music world. This book is great. He gets so much out of his subjests and Metheny is one of the greats of current music. It's interesting that Metheny was Niles' teacher at Berkeley College of Music. Niles is one of the great orchestraters and someone that excels in every field of music.This is worth shef space in your library. You'll want to browse it again.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Nothing really "in depth" at all...... 15 mars 2010
Par David J. Ohanlon - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I think a little reality check is needed with this publication.
Firstly, this is a presumably faithful transcript of four radio interviews (plus brief comments from Gary Burton & others) - it is NOT an in-depth biography or exploration of "all things" Metheny; for this, I think a journey through Pat's website (particularly the "Q&A" Section) has far more detail, particularly for the period before "Speaking of Now".
Secondly, the interviews are conducted more in the nature of a "fawning" fan than a musicologist - I'm not dissing the man's credentials but alas there's too much familiarity here & not enough genuine questioniong/critiquing or dare I say controversy (eg what does Pat think of his Kenny G comments 20(?) years on; what does he think of Wynton Marsalis' views on "jazz" etc??). Others have noted that Niles' closeness to Metheny allows him to get "more" out of him but to my mind, having read lots of interviews with Pat, I find he is pretty open & forthcoming in all of them.
Thirdly, seems to me that Metheny's pre-Nonesuch career is already pretty well documented so I was REALLY hoping that this book would spend a lot of time exploring the period from & including "Speaking of Now" & that magnificent opus "The Way Up"(new Band members, philosophy behind TWU etc etc). Alas in hastening to the "present" (ie. the Trio dates with Sanchez & McBride) the interviews skate over this period almost as if it never existed.
So, overall not a "bad" book but hardly satisfying for anyone wanting to really get down deep inside this acclaimed musician.

Par Stephen Rowland - Publié sur Amazon.com

Richard Niles has written a terrific, in depth musical biography, based on his personal interviews with one of the jazz world's most gifted and influential guitarists. Pat Metheny's originality, compositions and innovative musicianship has thrilled and inspired lovers of jazz guitar throughout the world.
Author Richard Niles' close friendship with Metheny has allowed him to interview and relate in explicit style and with extreme accuracy the focused and compelling journey that has made Pat Metheny one of the greatest jazz guitarists of all time.
This is a must read.

A really great book by one the most important Jazz artists of his generation. I could not put this book down.
It was great to read about his upbringing especially those first years of him playing guitar, the records he
check out and who inspired him. What was fascinating most of all was his tenacity for practicing and dedication.
Looking forward to reading it again.

Wow. A great interview with a real prolific artist and one of the all time modern jazz greats. Richard Niles not only has a knack for asking the right questions on what makes Pat "tick", but also delves a lot deeper into near metaphysical territory. I almost felt like I was reading Plato's Republic for the first time as a teen as Pat discussed his ideas. Just wonderful stuff.
I really believe this would be a good book not only for musicians but other artists and entrepreneurs as well. Pat describes how early on he knew exactly what he wanted to do and points to the decisions he made along the way to that end.
I found this a very enjoyable read, especially the abstract ideas Pat talks about like "the big questions" and "art as hyper-reality". I also believe this would probably fit well in a college music course for it's practical content as well as it's "out of the box" discussions.
The only thing I think could be added is possibly a web link so you could listen in on some of the interviews and Pat playing those riffs notated at the end. I would highly recommend this book.
