Blue Patches

This cool, elegant collection of accoustic standards evokes memories of dimly lit and smokey, romantic nightclubs. Yes, we’ve heard these songs before, but never like this. Patches may start out hip and jazzy, then become intimate, maybe adding a touch of blues, but it is clear he plays with ease and love.

“Fly Me to the Moon” features a fine vocal performance by Rebecka Tornqvist, a sultry-voiced singer from Sweden. Also noteworthy are special guest appearances by Saxophonist Gerald Albright, Drummer/Producer Lenny White, Pianist Jacky Terrasson and Bassist Charles Fambrough.

Announcers at Rochester, NY’s WGMC 90.1/105.1 FM Radio included “Blue Patches” in their Top 100 of 1997!
