5.0 out of 5 stars edit of rock and rap com, 22 Jun 2003

This review is from: Got A Good Thing Goin' On (Audio CD)
Kansas City native Patton honed his craft as a pianist for Lloyd Price in the 50s before switching to organ. Recorded on 29th April 1966, here he teams with guitarist Grant Green to play and to write ("Soul Woman," "The Yodel") with an organ trio (Hugh Walker the drummer fills in around the sound created by the two main players.) (conga player Richard Landrum makes it a quartet, also mixed well back on all the tracks.). Marvin Gaye's "Ain't That Peculiar" and Sam Cooke's "The Shake," aren't treated as covers but as wellsprings of new ideas. The sound is heavily dependent on Patton's keyboard sound, with little evidence of the bass pedals being used, and with no extra bass player on any of the tracks. The version of the Duke Pearson track "Amanda" adds a counterpoint to the tempo of most of the other tracks.

5.0 out of 5 stars John Pattons Dancefloor Groover!, 16 May 2003

Of all of Big John Pattons Blue Note LP's (about 7 in all) This one is the one I have used most to play out whilst DJ'ing. "The Yodel" is a dancefloor classic. Grant Green is in a modal funky mood. I had to pay over £50 for my original vinyl copy so this CD re-issue is most welcome. If you are going to buy your first Patton CD this is the one to start with.
