Pat Metheny Unity Group

Pat Metheny Unity Group

Playing in jazz clubs at 15 and an international jazz musician at 20, guitarist, composer, educator, and 20-time Grammy® Award winning guitarist Pat Metheny has played with: Herbie Hancock, Ornette Coleman, Jack DeJohnette, Gary Burton, Jim Hall, David Bowie and countless others.  With the Unity Group and a new album just in time for his festival appearance – comprised of saxophonist Chris Potter, bassist Ben Williams, drummer Antonio Sanchez and percussionist Giulio Carmassi – Metheny found a way to take the “Unity” concept all the way and form a platform for the first time that could cover the entire spectrum of things he has done as a bandleader over the years under one roof.

“… a group of blazing virtuosi with musical intelligence
to match.” - The Guardian
