Synopsis

Amazon.com
The combination of Don Patterson's supple organ and Booker Ervin's beefy tenor saxophone make this Legends of Acid Jazz volume a riotous listen. Patterson handles his keyboard with the range of touch and nuance of a pianist, dancing flat-fingered over the keys and then holding a riff phrase so it almost vibrates with resonance. Ervin plays a taut horn for all his tenor's size. He plows through notes with a hearty blues backbone, evincing the human cry's thickness and a poignant feel for a loose, grooving jam session. High-stepping soul is the order of the day across this set, with some balladry showing off the smolder of low-lit passion and a heap of musical interplay that recalls some of Ervin's best work jamming with Charles Mingus or on his own albums. --Andrew Bartlett

"I've listened to the vinal version of this CD hundreds of times trying to learn Mr.Pattersons playing style. This CD has some of my all time favorite organ and sax solos. It makes me cry good tears. Lyrics are for light weights!"
Spine chilling!
