359. Pat Metheny

An accomplished Jazz guitarist, Pat Metheny has garnered critical acclaim for his Jazz interpretations. Metheny may very well be one of the more ambitious Jazz performers as his work incorporated far more influences (World, Fusion for example) than most, yet he was able to do so without losing his basic appeal. As such, Metheny has a limitless quality about him as it seems to be little that he can’t do. Having said that, with a list full of accomplished Jazz artists, Metheny could get a surprise look as his music was a little more diverse than other Jazz superstars and he could have a lit more of that “Rock Credibility” than most.         The Bullet Points:   Eligible Since: 2001   Country of Origin: U.S.A.
