Pat Metheny’s orchestrion project

What’s an orchestrion, you ask? Wikipedia (of course) has the answer:

An orchestrion is a generic name for a machine that plays music and is designed to sound like an orchestra or band.

Legendary jazz guitarist Pat Metheny recently recorded an orchestrion-based album, and he’s taking it on the road. A friend and I are going to see the show when it comes through town in May. I can’t wait!
