John Patton • This One's for JA


by Stephen Thomas Erlewine
On the third album of his '90s comeback, Big John Patton chooses to create a relaxed vibe, smoothly grooving through a surprising choice of material. Most of the record consists of challenging songs like Coltrane's "Syeeda's Song Flute" and Grachan Moncur III's "Sonny's Back," which gives Patton -- as well as his supporting band, featuring guitarist Ed Cherry and tenor saxophonist Dave Hubbard -- the chance to create intricate yet accessible music. This is music that can be heard as simply a good groove yet it rewards careful listening. This One's for J.A. again confirms that Patton has made one of the rare comebacks in jazz, one that does justice to his earlier work.

En el tercer álbum de su regreso a los 90, Big John Patton opta por crear una vibración relajada, con un suave groove a través de una sorprendente elección de material. La mayor parte del disco consiste en canciones desafiantes como "Syeeda's Song Flute" de Coltrane y "Sonny's Back" de Grachan Moncur III, que dan a Patton - así como a su banda de apoyo, que incluye al guitarrista Ed Cherry y al saxofonista tenor Dave Hubbard - la oportunidad de crear música intrincada pero accesible. Se trata de una música que puede escucharse simplemente como un buen groove y que, sin embargo, recompensa una escucha atenta. This One's for J.A. confirma de nuevo que Patton ha hecho uno de los raros regresos en el jazz, uno que hace justicia a su trabajo anterior.
