    Jimmy Katz

    Last year, for the first time since 1980, guitarist Pat Metheny recorded with a band that highlighted tenor saxophone. Unity Band, which went on to win Metheny his 20th Grammy Award, featured Chris Potter on sax and bass clarinet, longtime collaborator Antonio Sanchez on drums, and Ben Williams on bass. Now, Metheny has added another musician, multi-instrumentalist Giulio Carmassi, and christened the ensemble Pat Metheny Unity Group. The Group’s first record, Kin (←→), will be released by Nonesuch on February 4, 2014. Watch a preview video about Kin (←→), set to various songs from the album, below.

    Kin (←→) pre-orders are available now in the Nonesuch Store on vinyl and CD and come with an exclusive print of the album cover art autographed by Metheny; it also available to pre-order on iTunes.

    The Pat Metheny Unity Group will tour to 44 cities throughout North America this winter, beginning February 3, then tour Europe from April through June. See below for all of the currently scheduled dates; for additional details and tickets, visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.

    Olivia Chaney's new album, Shelter, is out now on Nonesuch. Produced by Thomas Bartlett, the album is eight original songs plus Chaney's takes on songs by Purcell and the Everly Brothers. She has also released a video for the track "House on a Hill," filmed at the rustic, 18th-century cottage in the hills of the North Yorkshire Moors where she made the record. Watch it here. The Observer cites Chaney's "dazzling vocals" and calls Shelter "an elegant, luminous album." Uncut calls it "transcendent refuge from the storm." The Daily Mirror says it's "a triumph." Chaney performs in London on June 19; tickets are on sale now for her North American summer tour.
