It’s often said when it comes to literature, that spinning a good yarn can best be done when one writes about “the other”.

Many musicians like to collect instruments. Certainly, guitarists collect guitars. Pat Metheny is a case in point. Over the years he has added a synth-guitar as well as the exotic 42 string Pikasso guitar to his recordings and live performances. Not satisfied with switching guitars for a different sound, Metheny even built a whole new instrument, the auto-mechanical Orchestrion. It’s an elaborate machine with drums, guitars, pianos, a bottle organ, and whatnot all controlled by Metheny as he plays his guitar. He still takes parts of the Orchestrion on the road to join his band on tour.

Walter Gorra Jazz

As we begin to move towards the Fall, the music keeps on coming. During this week, for example, you can catch David Amram, along with singers Dee Dee Bridgewater, Kendra Shank and Katie Thiroux (who is also a strong bassist). Amram not only keeps the beat going on multiple instruments, he is also a living symbol of the Beat Generation. And on Wednesday, he's at Dazzle, 1512 Curtis, in a concert sponsored by MAS Eclectic at 7:30 p.m.
