I was sensing that Pat Metheny was due for a new album. I had no idea it would be two albums though. That’s a real treat. He is my second most collected artist in my music library. His sound is always evolving with a rich dimensionality.
Both albums are available for pre-sale and will be autographed for you 😉
The Unity Sessions features Grammy Award-winning Unity Group—Metheny with saxophonist Chris Potter, drummer Antonio Sanchez, bassist Ben Williams, and multi-instrumentalist Giulio Carmassi. The Unity Sessions is taken from a filmed performance with Pat Metheny Unity Group that was recently released on DVD; the set comprises 13 songs by Metheny, one he co-wrote with Ornette Coleman, and one well known standard by Ray Noble.
Cuong Vu Trio Meets Pat Metheny joins the guitarist with a trio led by longtime Pat Metheny Group trumpeter Cuong Vu. It comprises five tunes written by Vu plus one by Metheny and one by Andrew D’Angelo.
