Biography

John Patton, often known as Big John Patton, was one of Blue Note's busiest soul-jazz organists during the golden age of the Hammond B-3s. Between 1963 and 1970 Patton cooked up 11 albums' worth of material as a leader and sat in with a dizzying procession of skilled improvisers, and his best work has since been compared with that of tragically short-lived innovator Larry Young.

Format: Audio CD
Grab this one quick... first, if I'm not mistaken, it never was. A bunch of tracks put together from the vaults (much like my other fave of his and Grant Green's - - Blues for Lou). It seems to come and go out of print... though if I'm not mistaken, this is one of the first domestic reissues in years.
The sound is both funky and off center. Don't expect in your face Reuben Wilson style fatback... and don't expect pure Larry Young... expect an evil Frankenstein-ian mix of both of 'em as only Big John could do it. Expect to hear a mix of always slightly off center and mysterious B.J. Patton grooves meets progressive Jazz (circa 1969). The groove is always there, cool, bluesy and relaxed like Big John likes it... and he never gets excited and forgets it, no matter how far on the edge he gets... One note, and he'll take you to China, another, and its down home in Birmingham Alabama - - From the Mandingo to Sissy Strut... its time to rade the vaults again... and this sure 'nuff is a real good'un ! ! !
Personell are :
George Coleman - Sax (Tenor)
James Blood Ulmer - Guitar
LeRoy Williams - Drums
Marvin Cabell - Flute, Sax (Alto), Sax (Soprano), Sax (Tenor)

IT'S AMAZING THAT THIS CD WASN'T ORIGINALLY ISSUED IN THE '70'S. GREAT FUNKY NOTES FROM THE B-3. AFTER BUYING THIS CD, I HAD TO GET EVERYTHING I COULD FROM BIG JOHN. HE'S BAAD-CHECK HIM OUT! THE TUNE "DRAGON SLAYER" WITH THE BRUBECK "TAKE 5" TIMING; THAT'S MY FAVORITE CUT, ALONG WITH "CISSY STRUT". BLUE NOTE NEEDS TO EMPTY THE VAULT OUT ON THIS GREAT ARTIST! GET THIS CD NOW WHILE YOU CAN; IT'S BECOMING INCREASINGLY HARD TO FIND!
