Give this album some time....,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Kin (<-->) (Audio CD)
It may not be the best Metheny but this is still a high class jazz record. The band is amazing and sincerely I was expecting something more after the the heart breaking - mind blowing release of 2012 (UNITY BAND). We are quite far from that level and honestly the first time I listen to this album I thought "Is that it?", but I have faith in all the musicians I am listening since many years, so despite my initial feeling I kept playing this record a lot. A week later the whole concept of KIN (<->) (what a title btw!) appeared much more different, music started to make more sense and the connections between instruments started to be much more clear. Chris Potter. What to say about this guy? He's probably one of the best saxophone players alive right now and is a big, big part of this album. I've received this album only few weeks ago since I've ordered the vinyl edition and it took ages to get released. I was pleased to find a CD version of the album inside to put it in the car. The recording quality is very good and I am quite pleased with this new work of the Unity Band. Give few more listen to this record, get into it, it's a classy production, I hope the band will come to play live in Netherland sometimes, I am sure watch them live it's the real deal!
