About Pat Metheny Group

The Pat Metheny Group was an American jazz band founded in 1977. The core members of the group were guitarist, composer and bandleader Pat Metheny; and keyboardist and composer Lyle Mays, who was in the group at its inception. Other long-standing members included bassist and producer Steve Rodby, who joined in 1981, and member Antonio Sanchez, who had been the group's drummer since 2002. In addition to a core quartet, the group was often joined by a variety of other instrumentalists expanding the size to six or eight musicians.
