Just recently the artist in residence for the 36th edition has been announced: Pat Metheny can be seen in different collaborations.

There will also be an acoustic duo date with another Detroit native: bassist Ron Carter. Also, a very welcome return with Gary Burton is on the menu and finally, a very interesting suite will have its premiere: Metheny will play with the Detroit Jazz Festival Orchestra to present his latest 30-minute suite, dedicated to bassist Eberhard Weber which he debuted at a special tribute concert in Stuttgart in late January.
