Pat Metheny Unity Group's new album Kin (←→) is out now!

Pat Metheny Unity Group's new album Kin (←→) is out now! Here's what the critics are saying:

‘These pieces are closer to the romantically inclined, soaring melodicism of the Pat Metheny Group, yet retaining the energy of the Unity Band. It’s a craft duality that makes for this album’s appeal from an artist whose musical curiosity remains undiminished as he approaches his 60th birthday.’ (**** Jazzwise)

‘The album takes guitar-led improvisation to new aesthetic, Metheny’s eloquent guitar etching a kaleidoscope of sonic hues.’ (**** MOJO)

‘For guitarists every new Pat Metheny album is a major event, but the shock-haired American has outdone himself with this one.’ (**** London Evening Standard)

‘The arrangements and recording are immaculate. In modern jazz terms, a masterclass.’ (**** Q Magazine)

‘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.’ (**** BBC Music Magazine)

‘A set of twist-and-turn, genre-crossing sagas themed on notions of kin.’ (**** Financial Times)

‘Astonishing. Another envelope-pushing opus from a pathfinding musician whose talent doesn’t recognize boundaries.’ (**** Record Collector Magazine)

‘Another winner.’ (**** Hi-Fi News)
