This is what happens when you have Godly intervention plus a talent that is undeniable. This is what I call honest jazz...it is smooth, cool, and bathed in relaxation. Donald "Judge" Patterson is right up there with the top jazz bass players and has managed to stay humble and grounded. Great job cuz...All I can say is WOW! This is definetly a must have in one's music collection.

I have this cd playing in my studio every day. It creates a nice vibe for working. There's enough of a groove to keep it from fading into the background, yet it's smooth and has a flow that keeps it from being jarring. The vocal touches enhance the experience as well.

Smooth Grooves
Hi Donald,
I have been working to your cd everyday. It creates a very nice vibe . . . . there's enough of a groove to keep it from fading into the background, yet it is smooth and has a flow so it''s not jarring. I like the vocal touches as well. You're lucky to have such a talented family (or they are lucky to have inherited musical talent from you). I am also playing the cd in my car when riding with friends so I hope that leads a few people to CDBaby to buy it.

I really enjoy your music and style of jazz Don. Calming melodies with creative riffs - my stress relief!

This is a great cd! Donald plays great as a part of the fine songs, not to make the bass the main instrument, but to make the songs better. This proves Donald is a very serious artist in his own right too, besides all the work he is doing as a sideman. The tasteful playing from the other musicians too are making this a cd to check out to everyone who is into fine fusion/funk/smoothjazz.


I'm sorry, but I had to give up 5 stars...literally not a ONE I didn't love. This is truly remarkable jazz, pop in the deck and just ROLL TO jazz. Don't have to lift a finger to press the skip button jazz. I'm telling you, Do Not Sleep on this cat. Much luv Donald, much luv indeed. My Favorite Things was delivered in a way never heard before and it's ALWAYS been one of "My" favorite songs, but I've been waiting to hear it really Jazzed up and Donald "DID IT" Woooo Wee! Show this cat some luv yall. ~For Real~


The CD puts me in a relaxed mood. I really like listening to Elizabeth, Oceanside, and My favorite thing. There really all sound very good. The sound is so smooth. I REALLY enjoyed the whole CD. Great Sounds. Truely you are gifted and may God continue to bless you!!!! I GIVE THIS FIVE STARS
