John Patton • That Certain Feeling



It took Big John Patton nearly two years to return to the studio as a leader following the sessions that produced the exceptional Got a Good Thing Goin'. When he finally cut its sequel, That Certain Feeling, the musical climate had changed just enough to make a difference in his music. Where Got a Good Thing Goin' was down and dirty, That Certain Feeling was smooth. That's not to say that it didn't groove -- it was just cleaner, which means that the groove wasn't as infectious or hot as before. Still, Patton and his band -- guitarist Jimmy Ponder, tenor saxophonist Junior Cook and drummer Clifford Jarvis -- play very well, and there are moments when everything comes together and it just cooks. And those are the moments that make That Certain Feeling worth a search. by Stephen Thomas Erlewine, AMG

  1. Along with Larry Young's "Into Something" this is one of the finest organ records ever made. So great to hear Patton with a first class tenor player (Junior Cook).

    1. Certainly, we could add to Lou Bennett too, for his recordings of the '60s.
