Album Notes
Combine a jazz/choro mandolinist with a symphony violinist who also plays bluegrass and hot swing, add a string bass player who came of age working the Chicago blues clubs with the likes of Howlin' Wolf and Buddy Guy, a professor of music who also plays jazz/ fusion guitar, and a drummer whose career includes the ex-pat jazz world of Paris in the 50s and the folk scene of Greenwich Village in the early 60s. Stir in a little rock & roll attitude and season for 10 years in small clubs and large concert halls and you get some idea of the music of the Will Patton Ensemble.
Led by renowned jazz mandolinist Will Patton, the Ensemble deftly blends these many musical genres into a seamless whole, focusing on high energy improvisation and group interaction. Their repertoire, featuring fiery Brazilian sambas and folk waltzes, gentle choros and hot Gypsy jazz, takes you on a musical journey from a Parisian bistro to a plaza in the heart of Rio, and back home again to your front porch.

Thomas Custer

Jazz mandolin with a gypsy touch
From the first tune this band swings. The tunes are all jazzy with either a gypsy or latin feel. The acoustic mandolin sounds very nice, the improvisations are very melodic and interesting to listen to, the band very balanced. Electric guitar, flute and percussion add nice colours to the overall sound. The quality is consistent throughout, showing a varied repertoire of some gypsy jazz, some bossa and blues, two standards (Ellington, Porter and a beautiful valse.
This CD is for lovers of swinging acoustic string jazz. It's a treat!
It's hard to state a favourite track, but I really love the Will Patton original "Rue des rosiers".


Will Patton has really understood the manouche music and atmosphere from the suburbs of Paris.
Il love this album absolutely.
