Il live in studio voluto da Pat Metheny per documentare il livello raggiunto dal gruppo nel corso del lungo tour mondiale che ha toccato 150 città vede ora la luce nella versione solo audio, dopo essere già stato pubblicato qualche mese fa come DVD/Blu Ray Disc.

Pat Metheny: The Unity Sessions

Read "The Unity Sessions" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

Guitarist/composer Pat Metheny felt the urge to make a more traditional record with a horn plus rhythm section when he assembled what became the Unity Band in 2012.

Today's Rediscovery falls under the category of “where is he now?" I first heard of keyboardist Lyle Mays in 1977, when Gary Burton's quartet (with guest Eberhard Weber), played at the Glebe Collegiate High School auditorium in my home town of Ottawa, Canada. After the show, speaking ...

“As far as explaining [my music] to other people, I don't really worry too much about that," Pat Metheny reflected, perhaps befittingly for an artist who constantly seems to churn out new sounds while nestling himself at the forefront of ...

Oz Noy: Twisted Blues Volume 2

Read "Twisted Blues Volume 2" reviewed by Ian Patterson

Two and a half years on from Twisted Blues Volume 1, guitar ace Oz Noy returns with another incendiary serving of jazz-inflected blues. In the intervening period Noy has hardly been idle, releasing a couple of instructional DVDs and touring regularly but his return to the recording studio with his blues bag is certainly welcome. As ...
