Cat. no: ORIGIN82817
Release Date: 25th June 2021
Trombonist Ben Patterson’s fiery technique and expansive compositional vision combine for a thrilling quintet session of 10 wide-ranging originals.
From the opening title tune, a master-class in form & fire with tight ensemble passages and soaring solos, to the straight-ahead, Messengers-esque “Suits Me Fine,” Patterson unveils thoroughly compelling vehicles for his Washington, DC-based group.
All inspired soloists and master musicians, Patterson features guitarist Shawn Purcell, pianist Chris Ziemba, Paul Henry on bass and drummer Todd Harrison.
“Patterson displays creativity as a soloist and arranger...and a technical virtuosity that is quite impressive.” -- TROMBONE JOURNAL
