The Pat Metheny Trio Concert will feature Christian McBride on bass and Antonio Sanchez on drums. The same trio is featured on seventeen-time GRAMMY Award-winner Metheny's new Nonesuch CD: Day Trip, which will be released on Tuesday, January 29. The new CD is the legendary guitarist's first recording with Christian McBride and Antonio Sanchez.



This trio was formed by Metheny in 2002 and has played concerts all around the globe with performances in Australia, Europe, Asia, Africa and all across the United States and Canada. The group finally made it into the studio to record this music on a single day off during one of their most recent U.S. tours. All ten tracks on Day Trip are original Metheny compositions, including “Is This America? (Katrina 2005)," a song about the devastation in New Orleans, and “The Red One," which first appeared on the John Scofield and Pat Metheny album I Can See Your House From Here on Blue Note in 1994.



Over the course of three decades, guitarist Pat Metheny has set himself apart from the jazz mainstream, expanding and blurring boundaries and musical styles. His body of work includes seventeen GRAMMY Awards in nine separate categories (breaking the record for multi-category wins); a series of influential trio recordings; award winning solo albums; scores for hit Hollywood motion pictures; and collaborations and duets with major artists such as Ornette Coleman, Steve Reich, Charlie Haden, Jim Hall and many others. His band, the Pat Metheny Group, founded in 1977, is the only ensemble in history to win GRAMMYs for seven consecutive releases.



In addition to his own critically acclaimed recordings, Christian McBride is known as the first-call bassist for a vast array of jazz's most influential artists. He has played with Diana Krall, Joe Henderson, Freddie Hubbard, Herbie Hancock, Joshua Redman, Jack DeJohnette, Roy Haynes, Chick Corea, and Ray Brown's “Superbass" with John Clayton, among others-- as well as pop, soul, and classical musicians like Kathleen Battle, Carly Simon, Sting, Queen Latifa and the late James Brown.



Antonio Sanchez has been playing with the Pat Metheny Group and Pat Metheny Trio since 2002. He has also performed and recorded with Pacquito D'Rivera, Danlo Perez, the late Michael Brecker (with whom he recorded the GRAMMY winning album Wide Angles), David Sanchez, Charlie Haden, John Patitucci, Chris Potter, Avishai Cohen, Marcus Roberts, Dave Samuels, Chick Corea, Claudia Acua, and Luciana Souza, among others. Sanchez's debut recording as a leader, Migration (Camjazz), was released earlier this year.
