TJBS Great Albums for October features Pat Metheny Classic Recording
The next installment of the TJBS Great Albums Concert Series is Sunday, October 22, 6:30 and 8:00. at Rudys Jazz Room, 809 Gleaves Street in the Gulch.

This concert continues our partnership Rudys and moves to a new night and time. Seats for both shows will be General Admission (no reserved seating). Rudys has a full bar and restaurant (no BYOB).
Tickets will be $15 for TJBS members and students, $20 for non-members. Tickets will be on sale through Brown Paper Tickets and also available at the door.
Bright Size Life was Pat Methenys first trio recording as a leader, recorded when he was just 21 years of age. He was already demonstrating the tone, phrasing, compositional style, and adventurousness that would go on to characterize his work as a mature artist. Metheny was already working in Gary Burtons band, and his drummer for this date was fellow Burton bandmate Bob Moses. The date was also one of the earliest recordings of bassist Jaco Pastorius, who would himself go on to become a jazz legend.
We extend a special thanks to TJBS Board member and bassist Roy Vogt for organizing this date and assembling a remarkable band. Guitarist Lindsey Miller, a graduate of North Texas University, is one of Nashvilles foremost contemporary guitarists. Lindsey is in high demand as a studio and touring guitarist, and were very fortunate to have her for this date. In the role of Jaco Pastorius is Roy Vogt himself. Roy, a Belmont University faculty member, is also one of Nashvilles foremost contemporary and jazz fusion players. On drums will be none other than legendary drummer Danny Gottlieb, himself a longtime member of the Pat Metheny Trio. Due to the albums short length (38 minutes), each show will be graced by additional music including solo guitar from Lindsey Miller and a possible guest appearance by Dannys wife, percussionist Beth Gottlieb. This is a concert you wont want to miss!
