Metheny's versatility is almost without peer on any instrument and the past year has been remarkable for him. After receiving his 20th Grammy Award for the album Unity Band and releasing the critically acclaimed Tap: John Zorn’s Book of Angels, Vol. 20, he was voted into DownBeat magazine’s Hall of Fame, making him the youngest member and fourth jazz guitarist to be chosen. With the release of Kin (←→) Metheny has again re-invented himself in an ever-evolving career.
Hornsby has built one of the most diverse and adventurous careers in contemporary music as a performer, songwriter, and collaborator. With Bruce Hornsby and the Range he won the Grammy Award for Best New Artist in 1986 for their first album The Way It Is and produced hits “Mandolin Rain” and “Every Little Kiss.” He went on to even further successes with his band The Noisemakers. He has performed with the Grateful Dead, Don Henley, Bonnie Raitt, Ricky Skaggs, and has composed and recorded several projects for filmmaker Spike Lee.
