Pat Metheny presents his latest album "Kin" in Jazz San Javier accompanied by his current group Unity Group (05/07/2018)

The acclaimed American guitarist Pat Metheny returns to Jazz San Javier where he will present his latest album "Kin", recorded in 2014 with his Unity Group, the last musical formation created by the great American musician of 63 years considered one of the most influential guitarist of all the times.

In his Jazz concert San Javier, Pat Metheny will include some of the compositions that mark his long career since his debut album in 1974, with the album "Jaco", together with the great Jaco Pastorius.

Pat Metheny will play in quartet formation accompanied by musicians such as drummer Antonio Sánchez, the only member of the Unity group that comes from the Pat Metheny Group, as well as by Gwilym Simcock on piano and Linda May Han Oh on the double bass.

With 20 Grammy awards, divided into 12 different categories, Pat Metheny has just received the NEA Jazz Master, the highest distinction given to jazz musicians in the United States, a recognition that increases the prestige of a restless musician, considered as one of the best guitarists in the history of jazz, who has never stopped innovating and researching in music.

Among the many awards he has accumulated in his multifaceted career is the Goya of the Film Academy in Spain for Best Original Music, in 2014, for the film "Vivir es fácil con los ojos abiertos", by David Trueba.

Metheny's work includes compositions for solo guitar, small ensembles, electric and acoustic instruments, and for large orchestras, with arrangements ranging from jazz to modern and classical rock.

His solo career, with the mythical Pat Metheny Group, Pat Metheny Trio, the robotic experiment "Orchestrion", his solo recordings, and composition of soundtracks, has gone hand in hand with his numerous and valuable collaborations with musicians from all over the world, ranging from Charlie Haden, Jack DeJohnette, Toots Thielemans, or Herbie Hancock to Carlos Santana, David Bowie, Milton Nascimento, or the Spanish Enrique Morente, among many others.
