Our forebearers left us a treasure of organ jazz recordings from the 1960s and '70s. When it comes to identifying the greats, the short list is usually limited to Jimmy Smith, "Brother" Jack McDuff, and Richard "Groove" Holmes. No doubt, these are fine players, but this tiny list omits one of the greatest - Big John Patton. While listeners 'in the know' are familiar with Patton, he often flies under the radar. As if to rectify this injustice, Jim Alfredson kicks this tribute off with ‘Good Juice,’ which helps to set the stage. In this first song, we are reminded that Patton's songs bear a unique signature that fortunately comes through on this project. Alfredson's solos beautifully mingle with Patton's compositions and melodies. Next up, ‘Daddy James’ is a great tune. On this song and throughout the tribute, the electric guitar work makes a strong contribution. ‘Dirty Fingers’ opens up and gives the musicians lots of space to improvise. ‘Gentle John’ shows a tender side of Big John Patton. ‘Let 'em Roll’ is one of Patton’s strongest songs, and the Alfredson band does the tune in style. The band delivers strong work on the vibes and a stunning performance on the Hammond. At almost eight minutes, the brass comes out to play on ‘Early A.M.’ Not to be outdone, the guitar playing is also hot! ‘String Bean’ is another of those fun, iconic Patton tunes. Alfredson is all over the keys for this puppy. The mood changes for ‘My Valentine.’ In a beautiful way, the minor keyed song embodies the essence of loneliness. The guitar work in particular is stunning in its ability to elegantly capture human isolation. Things pick up for a closing highlight, ‘Along Came John.’ This tribute is very faithful to the originals.Read more ›
