Album Review: Pat Metheny- The Unity Sessions

The most striking element of the enormously satisfying The Unity Sessions by Pat Metheny's Unity Group is the pairing of “Cherokee” and “Police People.”  After the guitarist and saxophonist Chris Potter fly through a fleet version of the standard, the ensemble tears into a thorny reading of Ornette Coleman’s composition.  The contrast exemplifies the vast scope of The Unity Sessions, a project that may be the single most representative album of Metheny’s career.
