Legendary guitarist and composer Pat Metheny has been on the scene since 1976’s Bright Size Life (his seminal debut with bassist Jaco Pastorious and drummer Bob Moses) and has toured continuously for decades. His is a rich, fluid, and conceptually ambitious tone, colored by influences as wide-ranging as the swing of Wes Montgomery or the avant-garde stylings of Ornette Coleman. Metheny netted his 20th Grammy Award for 2012’s album Unity Band.

Sunday 8/10. $52.50-72.50, 8pm. The Paramount Theater, 215 E. Main St. Downtown Mall. 979-1333.
