Unity

Unity is the featured album on this weeks podcast. Larry Young took the Hammond B3 organ sound and brought it to another level from the conventional R&B style attributed to Jimmy Smith. Larry Young's sound is more of a reflection of the freedom that was emerging during the 60's with Coltrane's influence on jazz music. Also featured in this show is the tenor sax playing of Jimmy Greene.

Unity

This show features Pat Metheny as a prelude to a live show at University of Connecticut that commenced following this broadcast. We start with a track from the original Pat Metheny Group from 1978 followed by a later iteration of the group 20 years later, and then from his latest group the Unity Band. We also hear from the band's saxophonist Chris Potter and his group Underground. Weather Report and Michael Brecker are included in the show, as well as newcomers Hammer Klavier Trio, Frank Varela and Kris Allen.
