John Patton • Soul Connection

 



Originally released in 1983, Soul Connection is a rich, funky session where Patton demonstrates his virtuosity alongside guitarist Melvin Sparks and free jazz trombonist and composer, Grachan Moncur III. The title track, written by Serbian trumpeter Duško Goyković, opens the album, anchored by a swinging rhythm, a gorgeous lead melodic line, and Patton’s effortless solo. Sparks shines on “Space Station,” attacking the tune’s main theme with his bright, cool tone and an inventive and dexterous solo that lands midway through the song. Clocking in at over 12 minutes, “The Coaster” is the album’s closer, a piece where the soloists really stretch out and explore.

When Patton takes his final solo of the record, he paces himself, deftly introducing and countering his own melodic ideas as part of a sort of playfully self-contained call and response. As the intensity heats up, Patton makes his Hammond organ scream, reminding listeners that he was a master of one of jazz’s most important instruments.

Publicado originalmente en 1983, Soul Connection es una sesión rica y funky en la que Patton demuestra su virtuosismo junto al guitarrista Melvin Sparks y el trombonista y compositor de free jazz, Grachan Moncur III. El tema que da título al disco, escrito por el trompetista serbio Duško Goyković, abre el álbum, anclado por un ritmo oscilante, una magnífica línea melódica principal y el solo de Patton sin esfuerzo. Sparks brilla en "Space Station", atacando el tema principal de la melodía con su tono brillante y fresco y un solo ingenioso y diestro que aterriza a mitad de la canción. Con más de 12 minutos, "The Coaster" es el cierre del álbum, una pieza en la que los solistas se extienden y exploran.

Cuando Patton hace su último solo del disco, se toma su tiempo, introduciendo y contrarrestando hábilmente sus propias ideas melódicas como parte de una especie de llamada y respuesta juguetona. A medida que la intensidad aumenta, Patton hace gritar su órgano Hammond, recordando a los oyentes que era un maestro de uno de los instrumentos más importantes del jazz.

  1. Many thanks for all! But with this collection here "VA • Blaxploitation Style Funk From The Library" is something going wrong! Every link, for chanching fom the main page, to the volumes 2, 3, 4 or 5 is only leading to the site of volume 1 and therefore it is not possible to catch the download buttons, to the several volumes! Can you please fix this and correct? But thanks a lot!
