Metheny released two albums on Nonesuch this year: The Unity Sessions, which the Times of London called "brilliant," and Cuong Vu Trio Meets Pat Metheny, which All About Jazz called "a complete success."

  • About This Album

    1995 Grammy Award Winner

    This disc, noted the New York Times, “borrows sampling-and-rhythm innovations from hip-hop,” garnering a Best Contemporary Jazz Performance Grammy. Keyboardist Lyle Mays says the sessions prompted the most back-and-forth collaborating “since the early days of the group.”
