Guitarist Pat Metheny, one of the most famous and succesful musicians of today’s jazz has won 20 Grammy Awards in eleven different categories. Behind him are more than for decades of career as a musician, but unlike many artists of his generation he doesn’t look back – he keeps pushing forward.

 

Pat Metheny Unity Group celebrates returning to mainstream jazz and the core values of this genre. For almost 30 years the guitar of Pat Metheny hasn’t been accompanied by tenor saxophone, the answer to the question „Why now?“ can be answered cith the name „Chris Potter“. Metheny says that he is Potter’s huge admirerer, he is captivated by his bold playing, sound and fantastic improvisations. Drummer Antonio Sanchez has played with Pat Methenyfor the last decade. Bassist Ben Williams, who by the way studies under Christian McBride, is an excellent musician and a great stage partner. At the Unity Group’s new album one can also hear the multi-instrumentalist and composer Giulio Carmassi. The new album of this line-up will come on sale in February 2014.
