“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.” – Pat Metheny
The Pat Metheny Unity Group will play the Kentucky Country Day Theater on Sunday, July 27. For Louisville jazz fans, Metheny and any of his several band configurations need no introduction. An all-around jazz master and multi-instrumentalist, he has performed with artists as diverse as Steve Reich to Ornette Coleman to Herbie Hancock to Jim Hall to Milton Nascimento to David Bowie. His body of work includes compositions for solo guitar, small ensembles, electric and acoustic instruments, large orchestras, and ballet pieces, with settings ranging from modern jazz to rock to classical. You will really be able to hear him in the intimate confines of the Kentucky Country Day Theatre, where – as of this post – there were still some 144 seats available. Tickets to the show are $55-$65.
Here’s a promo for the group:
