Pat Metheny drummer Antonio Sanchez is the acclaimed composer behind the captivating score for 2015’s Oscar-winning film Birdman. Michael Keaton raves: “Such an original approach! You can’t imagine the movie any other way, once you’ve seen it!” Sanchez’s band Migration features heavy hitters Seamus Blake, who John Scofield calls “a total saxophonist”, John Escreet (Evan Parker) piano, and Matt Brewer, “one of the stalwart young bassists on the progressive jazz scene” (New York Times). Sanchez’s new album, The Meridian Suite, is his most ambitious project to date. Inspired by the imaginary lines of latitude and longitude that divide and define our relationship to our known universe, it’s a stirring masterwork.
