Bookmark and Share He used a number of animal sounds in concert when I saw him in 1986 on the Song X Tour. I distinctly remember a lion, birds, the donkey among others. I was the jazz DJ on the college radio WUSO (Wittenberg University Springfied Ohio). My senior year Pat/Ornette Coleman/Charlie Haden...and the song X tour performed there in our Fieldhouse. I had the chance to interview Pat for about 20 minutes to play on my show the following days. I wonder if I still have that cassette someplace?

Bookmark and Share OMG - where can I hear more of the "Blues Donkey"?! Anyone know if Pat ever used that effect to humorous, er, effect, either in concert or in the recording studio? It’s particularly impressive to hear musical results like that after punching a few keys on ENIAC, as seen in that bygone interview excerpt.

Bookmark and Share yes...but, the "Blues" donkey? What was that an Apple II? I wonder if that was connected to the Synklavier? I’ve got to see where this idea goes.

Bookmark and Share I heard about the CBS piece on Pat Metheny radio; I watched it and congratulate Pat Metheny for his innovation. I am from Missouri too, currently living in Miami, and Pat’s music always reminds me of home, beyond the Missouri Sky.

Bookmark and Share Was fantastic piece! Is Pat a genius or what??!!! Have seen the concert, love the cd.. and even more this piece made me be in awe of what Pat was able to accomplish, or even have the imagination to bring this to! The ideas Pat has had that led up to this even as early as 1986 is amazing .....(the funky donkey!!) LOL... Hope everyone gets a chance to see this....

Bookmark and Share Really enjoyed seeing how the idea unfolded. Admittedly, I know a lot of Pat’s earlier work and didn’t dive into what "orchestrion" really meant. This just shows his mastery of creativity in his craft and never sitting back. Love that he keeps pushing the boundaries...
