To be transmitted on August 9th on Radio 2, they tell me. Jamie Cullum‘s interview with Pat Metheny. It’s fast and furious right from the start. Play.

Cullum serves, heavy topspin slice:
Jamie Cullum : I’ve been listening to your music for so many years, I didn’t really know you were a real person..

Cross-court return from Metheny:
Pat Metheny: a lot of people say that actually

There are thoughts about Brad MehldauLyle Mays, on hearing Miles Davis on record as a youngster: “that was like somebody hit me over the head with a baseball bat, “ on Gary Burton, on working with Ornette and Denardo Coleman, on benevolent dictatorship and the complete impossibility of either “co-leadership” or democracy in a band: “I’ve never seen any example of that actually working.”

UPDATE: The BBC never manages to interview Pat Matheny just once per release. For Orchestrion he was on Jazzon 3 and Jazz Line-Up on the same weekend. This time there’s also a rather less engaging interview HERE with the editor of BBC Music Magazine
