ARTIST: JEB PATTON TRIO – NEW STRIDES
iTUNES BALANCE: $63.04
THOUGHTS: Given how into piano trios I have been of late I was looking forward to this date. I can’t remember where I heard Jeb for the first time but I remember really digging it. Most recently he has been working with the Heath Brothers so his name has come up a bit more frequently. This date didn’t disappoint. Some beautiful trio work! Great tunes, great arrangements and some stellar soprano saxophone work by Mr. Heath! I really enjoyed the quartet tracks of course but Jeb really shines on all the trio tunes!
