Jazz guitar great Pat Metheny will be stepping into the spotlight at Proctors in Schenectady at 8pm on Thursday, March 20. Metheny – recently named to the DownBeat Hall of Fame – will lead his new Unity Group, which has expanded to a quintet with the addition of Italian multi-instrumentalist Giulio Carmassi.
“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.”
On-sale date for the concert is still TBA, but tickets will be priced at $20, $35, $45, $55 & $70. Stay tuned for further details…
UPDATE (11/14/13): Tickets are now on sale.
