About the Album

Combining a quest for memorable melodies with his love of music that grooves and makes people move, trombonist Ben Patterson channels the likes of The Crusaders, The Brecker Brothers, and Herbie Hancock in creating this set of new original music. With strong helpings of funk, reggae, blues-shuffle, and the DC area's indigenous go-go beat, Patterson's band favorably recalls the R&B-based jazz recordings that filled the US pop, R&B, and jazz airplay charts in the '70s. Patterson features his working band of guitarist Shawn Purcell, pianist/B-3 organist/keyboardist Harry Appelman, Paul Henry on bass and drummer Todd Harrison, along with a guest appearance by saxophonist Luis Hernandez. "A CD full of action scenes and grooves without hip gimmicks..." Jazz'halo (Belgium)
