"A Star Vibist," as he has been trumpeted by Jazztimes, Jon Metzger has developed an international pressence through extensive touring, recording, and lecturing. A winner of a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship Grant for Performance, he has appeared at well-known jazz venues across the United States and has led his quartet on Tours of Germany, Italy, Holland, Belgium, Denmark, and Austria. He has played for kings and queens and other heads of state while serving as a jazz ambassador to more than 20 foreign countries in the Near East, Northern and Sub-Sahara Africa, and Central America under the auspices of the United States Information Agency's Arts America Program. He has also performed at the Spoleto Festival both in Spoleto, Italy and Charleston, SC; appeared at the East Coast Jazz Festival in Washington, DC; dueled vibes with Lionel Hampton at the Jazzfest Festival in Kingston, Jamaica; performed with Gunther Schuller as part of the American Composers Series at Strathmore Hall Arts Center in MD; and been featured in the Martin Williams Jazz Concert Series at the Kennedy Center.

His seven recordings as a leader have received widespread airplay and critical acclaim. The Washington Post called his release Into the Light "music that simultaneously appeals to the head, heart, and feet," while Jazztimes added "Metzger's musicianship shines," and Cadence concluded "Metzger is a flawless vibraphonist" when reviewing this album. On these releases, Metzger has been joined by Fred Hersch, Phil Markowitz, Marc Johnson, Harvie Swartz, Joey Baron, Jack Wilkins, and Allison Miller, among others. He has appeared on dozens of other recordings including six CDs with vocalist Ronnie Wells and pianist Ron Elliston (one was a Cadence top-ten jazz release choice), Iris Benjamin's Passing By, Claire Ritter's Waltzing the Splendor, Baron Tymus' Insight at Midnight, and the NC Jazz Repertory Orchestra's Benny Goodman Swing Collection. He was also the first artist profiled on the Southern Arts Federation's landmark Jazz South Radio Program and is now the only artist selected more than once.
