Add to Calendar 2014-06-10 20:00 2014-06-10 Pat Metheny Unity Group at Band On The Wall Band on the Wall is delighted to present the Pat Metheny Unity Group live at The Lowry, Salford Quays.
"A virtuoso guitarist, an expansive composer and, above all, an inveterate searcher" New York Times

Legendary jazz guitarist Pat Metheny made his return to small-combo performance with the Unity Group, a band gifted enough to keep up with the full range of his forty years of musical explorations. It is no surprise that with that band — "blazing virtuosi with musical intelligence to match" The Guardian — Metheny won his astonishing 20th Grammy award in 2013.
The Unity Group boasts a once-in-a-lifetime lineup: saxophonist Chris Potter, whom Metheny calls "one of the most exciting soloists in jazz on any instrument", Ben Williams, "the baddest new bassist on the block" (The Revivalist); powerhouse drummer Antonio Sanchez; and extraordinary multi-instrumentalist Giulio Carmassi

Advance booking strongly recommended for what promises to be a tour-de-force performance by this dazzling band and one of the highlights of the 2014 jazz calendar.
