iTunes Review

Over his impressive career, superstar guitarist Pat Metheny has lead parallel bands—the electrified Pat Metheny Group and acoustic-oriented units—with ever-changing rosters. The latter ensembles have boasted everyone from veterans like drum legend Roy Haynes and pioneering alto saxophonist Ornette Coleman to younger talent such as bassist Christian McBride and drummer Bill Stewart. For his Unity Band, Metheny brings along drummer Antonio Sanchez from his last trio, along with a few surprising choices—the influential tenor saxophonist/multi-reeds player Chris Potter and twentysomething double bassist Ben Williams. There’s a fully involved quartet sound on all nine Metheny originals, whether it’s the pastoral “New Year,” the gorgeous “This Belongs to You,” or the frenetic “Breakdealer.” Unity Band comes with a five-page digital booklet.

An Amazing Album

Every track is a winner! As a keyboardist I thought I would miss the keyboards. I don't! The saxophone fits in perfectly. This is the closest recording yet to a PMG album. I can't wait to hear and see the Unity Band live.

Very nice!

Fantastic

All the music on this album is very refreshing. This album has a very open and new sound. I heard Come And See played on Real Jazz Sirius XM a few days ago and it was brilliant. I really like the direction Pat went in for this album.

One of the most original guitarists from the '80s onward (he is instantly recognizable), Pat Metheny is a chance-taking player who has gained great popularity but also taken some wild left turns. His records with the Pat Metheny Group are difficult to describe (folk-jazz? mood music?) but manage to be both accessible and original, stretching the boundaries of jazz and making Metheny famous enough that he could perform whatever type of music he wanted without losing his audience.
