i truly believe it is unfortunate that more folks are not exposed to music like Pat and the Unity Group. Pat and the band get a Grammy, but they are not on the prime time show. It would be awesome if Pat could do the Tonight Show. Have a little fun with Jimmy Fallon and the Orchestrion gear and then have the band play an abbreviated tune. I recall when David Sanborn hosted Night Music. Two or three different artists or bands would play and then at the end , they all would play together. It was marvelous and yes Pat did one of the shows. Great way for people to be exposed to a variety of music. It was short lived. VH1 also did a show where an artist would be the VJ and would select music videos to air, as well as playing their own stuff live. Another good opportunity to expose folks to other artists and new music. Any other ideas to expose this music or other sources that exist that I am not aware of?

Bookmark and Share patsfan, I agree. Charlie Rose would be the right guy for a serious open discussion and I think Pat would probably be receptive to the idea. God call

Bookmark and Share Guys, I love To watch John Stewart , but I just can’t see Pat being the perfect mix. Actually, I’d like to see Charlie Rose interview Pat about jazz and It’s relevance and popularity in the whole world scene.....especially since since Pat tours outside of Us more than in. I much more serious and informative venue, I think.

Bookmark and Share One of my favorite Pat interviews was way back in the day with the late Tom Snyder on his overnight radio show. Secret Story had just been released and Tom said "This ain’t exactly Walkin’ My Baby Back Home."Snyder was one of my favorite interviewers,but he did throw out a few dumb questions that night.Pat,of course,was very gracious and gave some great answers.I know I have this interview on cassette tape somewhere,but I can’t find it.

Bookmark and Share The Daily Show would be a good fit. Here in the UK there are very few suitable shows.... only Jools Holland, which Pat appeared on 10 years ago, but without a band - still it was good. Jools is sometimes overrun with soundalike indie bands but does his best to get more diverse sounds on there. What’s so incredible is that with the proliferation of TV channels there is no more opportunities for quality to gain exposure. Mind you, do we want PM on the mainstream, answering dumb questions, having to play the game? The best music you have to look for. It was always that way anyhow.

Bookmark and Share Hey,I,ve got an idea.Pat and the band could have their own show.They could sit around and talk hot topics like the The View or The Talk.they could do cooking segments,talk with celebrities,etc.BUT,THE MUSIC WOULD BE PURE AND UNADULTERATED>Just a thought.................

Bookmark and Share I think Steven Colbert and Jimmy Fallon would be receptive. At least more air time on Public Television is needed. I often wondered why a winner of so many Grammy Awards was not on television. America is losing out by not hearing & seeing Pat Metheny and the UNITY Band.

Bookmark and Share One of my biggest bitches ( ask my wife, friends etc). Is that music is marketed and broadcasted universally like FAST FOOD. Believe me, 3 out of 4 people I ask haven’t a clue who Pat is, and don’t care, period. Nore do they care about music really. ... It’s just background fast food. Hence I’m not for the Tonight Show idea. .... It’ll just go over their heads, and in a way cheapen the true jazz experience like we know it. You have to discover and love jazz on your own terms, no way around it. Sorry, but mainstream USA just doesn’t ...and will probably never. ... GET IT

Bookmark and Share They used to play the "Last Train Home" video on New Visions with Ben Sidran on VH1.It was a cool show that came on late Saturday nights…..back in the day,of course.Heck,I even remember when you could see some good ’ole classical music on the A & E network.But now Arts and Entertainment is considered to be Duck Dynasty and stuff like that now.Go figure………..

Bookmark and Share " I recall when David Sanborn hosted Night Music." The PMG played a **ripping** version of "Have You Heard" on that show and Sanborn introduced the Band as "one of my favorites". Got an old VHS of that somewhere....

Bookmark and Share For those old enough to.....The Tonight Show during Johnny Carson’s tenure had the mightiest TV band ever (no dis-respect to Roots followers), and was fronted by trumpet er supreme Doc Severinsen. I would watch the show not only for the cracking laughs, skits, etc., but when Doc and the "Orchestra" fired up those greatly arranged charts it was mesmerizing. Speaking of great Music emissions, there was Saturday Night Special fronted by Wolfman Jack!

Bookmark and Share It’s not like Pat has never been on TV. I believe he did the tonight show with Jay Leno back in ’92. He was on Later with Jools Holland. There’s so much more, Austin city limits, Regis and Kathy lee. Good morning America. And Sessions at 54th st, that I was lucky enough to be in the studio audience.

Bookmark and Share Pat was on Letterman back in the 80s with Gary Burton’s quintet. And he has been on PBS in the past, probably as far back as the 80s also. But unfortunately the major stations and late night shows just don’t think Pat and jazz musicians in general fit their programming tatse. Or, in other words, they just aren’t hip enough to get it.

Bookmark and Share Saw Pat on Letterman once I believe, with Gary Burton in the foreground. Also, saw the great drummer Roy Haynes. But, I find it almost deplorable as to the so called quality of groups that appear on those shows or Saturday night live etc, etc........Mr. Metheny, with his 20 grammys in 10 different categories is still relatively unknown..........and for the most part in my opinion, jazz is almost a dirty word in our culture.......Only the caring and lucky minority actually have or take the time to "listen" and absorb................Look at the market share of jazz in the music business and how everything has changed. Tony Bennett has some interesting comments on the biz as does Chick Corea......................Europe has embraced Mr. Metheny much more than our instant gratification culture................

Bookmark and Share During the "Secret Story" tour, Pat played "SeeThe World" on the "Tonight Show." He’s done Letterman a couple of times, at least once with Gary Burton. but I agree he’s past due for some exposure on those shows.
