Format: Audio CD
~ Organist John Patton, guitarist Grant Green, and drummer Ben Dixon constituted a formidable rhythm machine for the Blue Note label in the early to mid-1960's. Through a series of recording sessions listed below they developed an intuitive, empathetic interplay that elevated many of their sessions to near-greatness in the realm of soul-jazz. The trio knew each other so well that their grooves are totally natural, which makes them so appealing. They provided the soulful groove in the following soul-jazz sessions for Blue Note (recording dates are indicated): Lou Donaldson's "Natural Soul" (9 May 1962); John Patton's "Along Came John" (5 April 1963); Grant Green's "Am I Blue" (16 May 1963); Harold Vick's "Steppin' Out!" (27 May 1963); Grant Green's "Blues for Lou" (20 Feb & 7 June 1963); Lou Donaldson's "Good Gracious" (7 June 1963); Lou Donaldson's "A Man with a Horn" (7 June 1963); Don Wilkerson's "Shoutin' " (29 July 1963); John Patton's "Blue John" (11 July & 2 August 1963); John Patton's "The Way I Feel" (19 June 1964); and John Patton's "Oh Baby!" (8 March 1965). It is interesting to note that the 7 June 1963 session produced music that contributed to three albums released under the leadership of Green and alto sax man Lou Donaldson.
~ "BLUE JOHN" (11 July & 2 August 1963) was scheduled to be Patton's second album, but Blue Note did not release it until 1986. At a time when Blue Note was trying to promote Patton and guitarist Grant Green as soul-jazz champions, the reason for keeping album in the vaults may be the offbeat nature of some of the music. The quirky character is largely attributed to the presence of soprano sax/stritch player George Braith, one of the few Rahsaan Roland Kirk disciples to master the art of playing multiple horns simultaneously.
