Pat Metheny Unity Group performing at The Sandler Center for the Performing Arts
Feb 11, 2014 07:30 PM - 10:00 PM
It is one thing to attain popularity as a musician, but it is another to receive the kind of acclaim Metheny has garnered from critics and peers. Over the years, Metheny has won 20 Grammy Awards in 12 different categories including Best Rock Instrumental, Best Contemporary Jazz Recording, Best Jazz Instrumental Solo, and Best Instrumental Composition. The Pat Metheny Group won an unprecedented seven consecutive Grammies for seven consecutive albums. Metheny has spent most of his life on tour, averaging between 120-240 shows a year since 1974.
"The Unity Band record and tour was such a life changing experience for me that I didn't want to see it come to an end." says Pat Metheny. "One night, I woke up with the tantalizing idea of taking the concept of musical 'Unity' even further. With this project, I want to form a platform that encompasses the entire range of things that I have done over the years, from Bright Size Life to Secret Story, from my group projects to the Orchestrion, and with this incredible group of musicians, Chris Potter, Ben Williams, Antonio Sanchez and Giulio Carmassi, just about anything is possible!"
