Man and Machines: Pat Metheny's Orchestrion

Man and Machines: Pat Metheny's Orchestrion
National Public Radio recently broadcast a segment on NPR's Weekend Edition, entitled "Man and Machines: Pat Metheny's Orchestrion"

From expert Steve Ryder:
In it Ashley Kahn interviews jazz artist Metheny, and they also pay
a respectful nod to traditional orchestrions of the past with a visit
to Popper's "Rex" orchestrion in the M.D. Guinness collection at the
Morris Museum in Morristown, New Jersey.

Metheny's "Orchestrion" tour has circulated Europe and some of the
U.S.A. and it hits Manhattan this weekend. In June the tour goes to
South Korea and Japan, and there are some return dates in the New York and New Jersey area in October. More can be found on

Meanwhile, the CBS Sunday Morning News TV segment on Metheny's "Orchestrion" has been rescheduled for a date to be announced.
