On Wednesday night the Eventim Hammersmith Apollo witnessed the Pat Metheny Unity Group undertake a marathon of music featuring Chris Potter, a robotic instrument group and 4 encores which is receiving great reports:

‘For two-and-a-half hours straight, the band joined edgy jazz, warm ballads, film-score broodings and much-loved 1980s Metheny hits, while the almost 60-year-old leader’s virtuosity, work ethic and devotion to jazz as entertainment never faltered for a moment.’

‘Technological wizardry, core jazz skills and a knockout band’
