Bill Evans ' album Live in Montreux and Miles Davis ' album Filles de Kilimanjaro were important influences on his formation as a jazz musician. He graduated from the University of North Texas after attending the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire . [5] [6] [7] He composed and arranged for the One O'Clock Lab Band and was the composer and arranger of Grammy nominated album Lab 75 . [8]

Not long after, legendary vibraphonist Gary Burton recruited him to teach at Berklee College of Music in Boston, and he soon joined Burton’s group, sharing guitar chores with Mick Goodrick. After recordings with Burton and fellow UM faculty member Jaco Pastorius, Metheny’s ’76 solo debut, Bright Size Life , turned a legion of guitarists’ heads. But two albums later, The Pat Metheny Group landed the guitarist on the covers of Downbeat and Musician . And his group – Metheny, keyboardist Lyle Mays, bassist Mark Egan, and drummer Danny Gotlieb – were as close to rock stars as any jazz combo of the past four decades. His rapport with Mays brings to mind Jim Hall’s collaborations with Bill Evans, except that Hall and Evans didn’t play thousands of live gigs together.
