"The Unity Band record and tour was such a life changing experience for me that I didn't want to see it come to an end," says Pat Metheny. "One night, I woke up with the tantalizing idea of taking the concept of musical 'Unity' even further. With this project, I want to form a platform that encompasses the entire range of things that I have done over the years, from Bright Size Life to Secret Story, from my group projects to the Orchestrion, and with this incredible group of musicians, Chris Potter, Ben Williams, Antonio Sanchez and Giulio Carmassi, just about anything is possible!"

For over three decades, Doc Severinsen & His Big Band ruled the late night television airwaves. His reign began in 1962, and he became an American household name in large part because of the performance of his stellar big band as creative trumpet playing and big band leader on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson. Although this beloved television program ended its run in 1992, Severinsen's career continues non-stop. He tours annually, performing to fans who love and respect Doc and his big band sound.
The repertoire oftentimes include Ellington and Basie standards, pop, jazz, ballads, big band classics and, of course, The Tonight Show theme.
