Biography

RAHSAAN PATTERSON
BLEUPHORIA

The passage above plays in a loop in my head as I wait for Rahsaan Patterson (Rah to his friends) to arrive at Casbah, the Moroccan-themed café where we’re meeting to talk about bleuphoria, his latest CD. That potent snatch of lyrics sums up both the high-wire aesthetics of the new disc and Rahsaan’s approach to his entire career (itself ... Read more in Amazon's Rahsaan Patterson Store

Product Description

Amazon.com

Stevie Wonder's influence is especially obvious in the music of 23-year-old Rahsaan Patterson, who not only imitates the syncopated keyboard phrasing of his hero's records but also impersonates Wonder's vocal tone as well. Sometimes the similarities are too close for comfort. Fortunately, Patterson comes up with chorus melodies that sound as catchy as his model's without sounding like any Wonder song in particular. "Stop By" uses old-fashioned wah-wah guitar and slap-funk bass to create a compelling push-and- pull rhythm that the singer elaborates into a giddy chorus of infatuation. "Joy," Patterson's a cappella tribute to his New York church roots, finds the young vocalist holding his own with the singers of Take 6. Even the three numbers that Patterson didn't cowrite boast strong, Wonder-ful hooks, but the best are found in the seven songs cowritten by Patterson and his keyboardist Jamey Jaz. --Geoffrey Himes

I love Rahsaan Patterson's music.

I own seven copies of this CD, and six of "Love in Stereo", and I have bought copies for family and friends to turn them on to this brother's music.

This cat is what we call "The Truth." His cd dropped in 97 but if it were released today it would go to #1. Trust me. Someone asked me to name the top 5 R&B cds within the last 5 years: Maxwell's "Urban Hang Suite," Erykah Badu's "Baduism," D'Angelo's "Brown Sugar," Musiq Soulchild's "AYEJUSWANASEING," ...and this one right here...Rahsaan Patterson! It's pure, raw, unadulterated Rhythm and Blues the way it used to be. R&B purist will worship this cd. People overuse the term "Instant Classic"...not here. This is a classic. 14 tracks, maybe 2 filler songs! MCA didn't do enough to push this cat and that's a shame and a slap in this artist's face. Unbelievable melodies, strong and brilliant vocal arrangements, and tight lyrics. TEARS AGO is my fave and COME OVER is the quintessential Cha-Cha song. The kid has talent -- point blank! I told friends about him and said "If you didn't like the cd, I would buy it back from you." So far 37 bought it: 0 buybacks...and counting...

Comes over a period of time; usually after years have passed. When in the midst of it happening, you're just grooving and relishing in it, but you truly, truly don't appreciate its greatness until you've grown and time has elapsed. Then it dawns on you that you own one of the most perfect and pleasing cds; from the harmonies to the hooks to the melodies to the lyrical content. It all just flows like the ocean and the heavy current just pulls you under; even more so now than it did back then.

Though years have passed since I purchased this cd, this little jewel (as does his cd Love in Stereo), still gets mad play and immediate props from me. It is as close to perfection, as a musician can get without driving himself and his listener musically insane! Each and every track has top notch production, unbelievable hooks and delicious lyrics...and that's not to mention the harmony between Mr. Patterson and his background singers!

I wrote this review for Mr. Patterson, he really does deserve to be recognized for his inspiring and pleasing projects, and that beautiful elastic voice he possesses. Though not recognized as he should be, he is always on point and has a strong core following! This CD should have sold mad copies back in the day, as many and as much as some of his contemporaries back then, i.e, Lauren Hill, Maxwell, D'Angelo, etc.

But it's never too late, if you don't own this cd...get it now and start rockin' and groovin'!!!!!

Rahsaan Patterson is one of those truly gifted individuals that comes along every once in a while. I got the jump on this brother when a friend of mine over at MCA records dropped the CD on me in a promo box, and after listening to it, I was hooked. I do not hear Stevie Wonder's influence overtly displayed on the tracks, This is not Glenn Lewis, this is just self expression, laid out at it's finest. I own seven copies of this CD, and six of "Love in Stereo", and I have bought copies for family and friends to turn them on to this brother's music. His career is a classic example fo artist mismanagemnet - He should be a superstar by all accounts, but I guess he didn't have a gimick the label could sell, he wasn't thug enough or commercial enough. I plan on making a baby one of these days to songs like "One More Night" and "I don't Wanna Lose It", but I am not in a rush. I am awaiting the third release from Rahsaan. Keep it coming brother!

"RAHSAAN PATTERSON" (MCA Records) Review by Kirk Douglas Provo
kprovo@hotmail.com
Consider the recent debut releases from Eric Benet, Kenny Lattimore, and Eryka Badu and you will soon realize that R&B is returning to good quality music of the ilk that touches the heart and Soul. Add young Rahsaan Patterson to this very short list as an exciting new performer with not only a voice - but something to say. Oh, and how he articulates! This self-titled premiere recording is one of the most satisfying music releases in recent memory.
The record showcases Patterson as a vocalist with quite an impressive depth of emotion as well as technical range. While he often sounds like Stevie Wonder, at times he brings to mind traces of what a less-excited Chaka Khan might sound like after a gender switch! This is no minor accomplishment.
On the writing end, Patterson's collaborations exhibit the thoughtfulness of a disciplined artist. The fourteen selections here indicate a willingness to hone his craft, taking the time with his work, carefully going over the fruit of his labour with a fine tooth comb before exposing it. One thing for certain: Rahsaan really knows his music. This album is nothing if not diverse. One moment we hear a funky old school jam and the next, it is onward to acoustic balladry of the Tracy Chapman/Eric Clapton brand.
Tunes like the beautiful "Where You Are" can be deceptively simple upon first listen. Here, a stripped-down production approach makes room for Patterson's stunning vocal presentation. The artist is able to wrap his considerable voice over and around a pretty melody line, a difficult feat for many - one perfected by the late great jazz singer Sarah Vaughan. The skill does not stop here, though.
