Pat Metheny wrote "“Lyle was one of the greatest musicians I have ever known. From the first notes we played together, we had an immediate bond.”

Nick looks back at the career of Lyle Mays, remembered for his work with the Pat Metheny Group, who recently passed away aged 66. Also this hour: tracks from Kiwi boogie-woogie pianist Jan Preston, and Tierney Sutton sings Sting.
