I'm thrilled to see Pat Metheny has a new recording with one of the best group of musicians I can imagine; Antonio Sanchez, Chris Potter, Ben Williams and a new member Giuilo Carmassi, who I have yet to hear. Metheny has a proven track record with finding the best jazz musicians in the world to work with and I'm sure the 'Pat Metheny Unity Group' will be no exception.

I've seen Miles Davis, Keith Jarrett, Jaco Pastoious, and even Count Basie and his orchestra- jazz concerts I will never forget. Metheny is up there with some of my unforgettable, classic jazz performances I've had the honor of experiencing live.

I wait impatiently to hear this new recording and see his new 'Unity Band' when they come through Santa Barbara, California at the end of February. This, I know will keep me inspired for the remainder of the year.

Sincerely,
A Metheny music lover since 1978.
