"A virtuoso guitarist, an expansive composer and, above all, an inveterate searcher" (New York Times), legendary jazz artist Pat Metheny made his return to small-combo performance with the Unity Group, a band gifted enough to keep up with the full range of his forty years of musical explorations. It is no surprise that with that band — "blazing virtuosi with musical intelligence to match" (Guardian (UK) — Metheny won his astonishing 20th Grammy award in 2013.
The Unity Group boasts a once-in-a-lifetime lineup: saxophonist Chris Potter, whom Metheny calls "one of the most exciting soloists in jazz on any instrument"; Ben Williams, "the baddest new bassist on the block" (The Revivalist); powerhouse drummer Antonio Sanchez; and extraordinary multi-instrumentalist Giulio Carmassi.
Pat Metheny Unity Group is a co-presentation of Duke Performances and The Carolina Theatre of Durham.
