Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

JOHN PATTON

Soul Connection

2008-09-30

John Patton passed away in 2002. This is a re-release of a 1983 album. This is some fine jazz, featuring Mr. Patton on the B3 organ. To sum this thing up, I'd have to say that the best song is the title track with Alvin Queen being an absolute monster on the drums. Then there is "Pinto", a big band/blues piece. "Extensions" offers some nice fretwork from Melvin Sparks on guitar. All the musicians have a moment to shine in the swinging "Space Station". The last tune, "The Coaster" has a nice groove while featuring Grachan Moncur and Grant Reed blowing their horns with muscle. Reviewed by Rebecca Ruth.
