About the Album

Among the vanguard of today’s contemporary composers and big band arrangers, trombonist Ben Patterson and his Washington, DC-based band deliver with this hard-driving, bone-chilling set of electrified funk. His music is just as comfortable harnessing the power of the traditional big band horn section as it is with the intermingling of electronica to achieve a singular, complex vision. Surrounded by the elite rhythm section of pianist Chris Ziemba, guitarist Shawn Purcell, bassist Paul Henry, and drummer Todd Harrison, Patterson molds deep musical magic around their swirling grooves. "...Patterson digs deep in offering some slick and seriously smart art...one brilliant party record that's both sophisticated and accessible." - All About Jazz
