Pat Metheny - It Started with the Trumpet
Pat Metheny: The trumpet thing has remained kind of a constant for me. I mean, even now, when I’m playing on the guitar, I’m kind of thinking trumpet.
Icefire transition to Trane’s Blues
Pat Metheny: My dad was a very good amateur trumpet player, and my mom’s dad was a professional trumpet player, so trumpet was everywhere. And I would list among my most important influences trumpet players. Miles Davis. Hearing one of his records when I was about 11 changed my life. It was like somebody hitting me over the head with a baseball bat, like, what is that?
Trane’s Blues up
It’s real deep, that trumpet thing for me.
