Album Notes
Big John Patton (July 12, 1935 in Kansas City, Missouri – March 19, 2002 in Montclair, New Jersey) was a staple of the Blue Note label's roster during the heyday of soul jazz in the 1960s. As well as a respected and in-demand sideman, Patton also made a name for himself as a band leader and composer, defining the sound of acid jazz for decades to come.

Patton is the link between the bluesy hardbop of Jimmy Smith and the modal free-jazz explorations of Larry Young. His style is funky and raw, emotional and honest, and thrillingly visceral.

Jim Alfredson's playing and writing for organissimo is heavily influenced by Patton. This project is his way of honoring the man and his music. Featuring an all-star lineup, including the inimitable Randy Gelispie on drums (Professor of Jazz at Michigan State University, who has performed and/or recorded with Jack McDuff, Wes Montgomery, Larry Young, Gene Ludwig, Bill Heid, Nancy Wilson, Tommy Flanagan, Barry Harris, and many more), the band romps through seven classic Patton songs as well as a contemporary ballad and an original by Alfredson.
