Timeless Metheny. Melody. As a singer/songwriter, this is perhaps the one aspect of many in music for which I am the most hopelessly smitten…freakishly so, like a stalker…but in a good way (winkwink). I come from a family of musicians. We’re all vocalists, and if there’s one thing we absolutely obsess over (and will sing to total strangers, unsolicited, whether they like it or not), it’s a killin’ melody. My first introduction to Pat Metheny was as a kid, when my dad would spin his records. By Christine Tambakis
