The year 2013 was a banner one for PAT METHENY.  After being awarded his 20th Grammy, for Unity Band and the release of his critically-acclaimed recording of Tap: John Zorn’s Book of Angels, Vol. 20, Metheny received word that the readers of DownBeat Magazine had voted to induct him into its Hall of Fame.  Not only is Metheny the youngest member, but he is also only the fourth jazz guitarist to be chosen for that honor, joining Charlie Christian, Django Reinhardt and Wes Montgomery.

2014 has been equally exciting.  As Metheny says:  “The Unity Band record and tour was life changing for me and I really wanted to find a way to keep it going and take it to the next level.  One night, I woke up with the tantalizing idea of taking the concept of ‘unity’ even further.  With this next project, I envisioned building a platform capable of addressing the entire spectrum of things I have done over the years, from Bright Size Life to Secret Story, from my Group projects to the Orchestrion and more all in one place.”  He continues: “With this incredible lineup of musicians–saxophonist Chris Potter, acoustic and electric bassist Ben Williams, drummer Antonio Sanchez and the addition of multi–instrumentalist–he plays keyboards, trumpet, French horn, flute, clarinet, cello, alto sax, recorder, vibraphone and trombone AND he whistles and sings–Giulio Carmassi–just about anything is possible.”
