David Sanborn sits down with his old friend, guitarist and composer Pat Metheny. In part one of this two part conversation, Metheny talks about his latest solo record, Dream Box, as well as his history, influences, and the creative process. They also reminisce about hanging out together at the Power Statiion at 3am.

David Sanborn has released 24 albums, won six Grammy Awards, and has had eight Gold albums and one Platinum. Having inspired countless other musicians, Dave has worked in many genres which typically blend instrumental pop, R&B and traditional jazz. He released his first solo album Taking Off in 1975 but has been playing the saxophone since before he was in high school when he was inspired by the great Chicago blues artists near his hometown of St. Louis.
