Continuing my interview series with the many great musicians I am lucky to get to meet I will be writing today about the Australian guitarist Albare. Last week I had the pleasuare to meet him at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in the Downtown area in Boston. The musician had just arrived from a long and exhausting flight from Australian but was still kind enough to take the time to meet with me and to share his words of wisdom to the blog readers. Below is the link to the short interview I had with him that night.
Hoje irei escrever sobre o show que assisti neste domingo dia 14 de Outubro no Berklee Performance Center. O guitarrista Pat Metheny voltou á escola em que foi professor quando tinha apenas 18 anos para fazer uma apresetação com 3 dos maiores nomes da música hoje em dia. No formato tradicional de quarteto, Pat foi acompanhado por Chris Potter no saxofone tenor, Ben Williams no baixo acústico e Antonio Sanchez na bateria. O grupo estava no último show de sua turnê nos Estados Unidos promovendo o seu álbum mais recente, Unity Band. Neste blog irei descrever a experiência de ir ao show de um dos meus músicos favoritos em todo o mundo de graça, em um dos melhores assentos do Performance Center e de conhecer Pat e toda sua banda após o show.
Greetings! My name is Andre Vasconcelos and I am the writer for the brazilian Portuguese section of the Berklee Blogs website. I have been writing for the blogs for 2 years now and its been a time filled with great and unique opportunities. Through this job I got to meet a lot of great artists and to, sometimes, interview them.
Writing blogs about meeting these accomplished artists is always great, I get to learn quite a lot from their experiences and lifestyles. This post is particularly special to me because I got to do an email interview with one of my favorite musicians of all time, the legendary jazz guitarist Pat Metheny. Metheny recently released his last album, Unity Band, with Chris Potter, Ben Williams, and Antonio Sanchez.

When I found out that Pat Metheny would be performing the Unity Band at the Berklee Performance Center on October the 14th, not only I decided to secure the date to catch yet another one of his stunning performances but I also thought about trying to interview him for the blogs. Working closely with my bosses at the Admissions Office and with his publicist Sue Auclair I was able to email the guitarist some questions. Read below Pat’s answers to my inquiries! Enjoy!
