“The Unity Band record and tour was such a life changing experience for me that I didn’t want to see it come to an end.” says Pat Metheny. “One night, I woke up with the tantalizing idea of taking the concept of musical ‘Unity’ even further. With this project, I want to form a platform that encompasses the entire range of things that I have done over the years, from Bright Size Life to Secret Story, from my group projects to the Orchestrion, and with this incredible group of musicians, Chris Potter, Ben Williams, Antonio Sanchez and Giulio Carmassi, just about anything is possible!
