Guitarist Pat Metheny will return to the Mondavi Center on Tuesday, July 15, at 8 p.m. — this time as the leader of the Pat Metheny Unity Group, which also features saxophonist Chris Potter, bassist Ben Williams, drummer Antonio Sanchez and versatile instrumentalist Giulio Carmassi (piano, keyboards, winds, guitars, vocals).
Metheny began his career as a performer and recording artist in the 1970s, and has won multiple awards as a jazz artist over the decades. In 2013, he won his 20th Grammy Award (for Best Jazz Instrumental Album) for a 2012 release titled “Unity Band.”
The group recently returned from a European tour; its appearance in Davis will be the first stop on a midsummer American tour (and one of the few concerts to be heard at the Mondavi Center this summer).
Tickets are $25, available at www.MondaviArts.org or 530-754-2787.
