A Night Away - Pat Metheny, Brad Mehldau

Guitarist Pat Metheny playing guitar in his collaboration with Brad Mehldau (piano) in Spain, 2007. It's great to hear (and see) two fine improvisers at work, but don't forget the backing duo. Keeping the foundations in place in a far from simple manner isn't easy.
Bassist Larry Grenadier and drummer Jeff Ballard were playing together as teenagers years in Northern California.

Pat Metheny
Pat Metheny's latest Cd is called Unity Group kin, and features one additional player to the established Unity Group.

BBC review:
'By adding Guilio Carmassi to his current quartet, Metheny has brought lush colour to a band that gloried in tight, telepathic interplay. For latecomers to Metheny's wide oeuvre, the Unity Group is a great place to start.'
