World renowned guitarist/composer Pat Metheny brings together a new and specially hand-picked ensemble, to mark his first London concert in two years, and his only UK concert this year.
Saxophonist Chris Potter joins Metheny for a collaboration that is sure to strike sparks – a potent improviser, whose “works with” list includes Herbie Hancock, Dave Holland, John Scofield, McCoy Tyner and many others. There’s a real buzz developing around bassist Ben Williams – a young New York hotshot who has already caught the ear of contemporary jazz giants Wynton Marsalis, Terence Blanchard, and Herbie Hancock. Drummer Antonio Sanchez’s association with Metheny stretches back to 2003 – in the guitarist’s own words, “with Antonio, anything is possible.” Metheny’s own genius invariably brings out the very best in his fellow players – this band is sure to deliver music of rare spirit and imagination.
