JazzMando What's New - Perennial JazzMando favorite, Will Patton continues to get rave reviews and attention for his recently released CD, "6th St Runaround." The latest of accolades can be found in a Times Argos (Montpelier, Vermont) Art Edelstein arts review. "Patton is a fine musician who also plays guitar and bass on the CD. His well-worn Gibson A model mandolin (also the choice for klezmer/bluegrass mandolinist Andy Statman) has a warm rich sound, and his chops are impeccable. But, with players like Gusakov, Blair and Anna Patton contributing, there is plenty of space for each musician to take a lead. Thus we have a program of soft, non-jarring jazz presented by some of the best musicians found in this state."
We have to agree, and were recently privileged with a submission from the veteran musician in our PROFESSIONAL'S SOUND LAB with an interpretation of Lydia O'Lydia, one of our five concept songs from the book, "Getting Into Jazz Mandolin."
