More Info:

His ability to weave extraordinary lines at any speed in all registers is exemplary, but when we get into his ability to craft a wonderful arrangement as well as write a captivating original to his musical persona, we start to get the whole picture: Ben Patterson is a complete musician. - Steve Wiest. 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/keyboardist Harry Appelman, Paul Henry on bass and drummer Todd Harrison, along with a guest appearance by saxophonist Luis Hernandez.
