Hey, Origin Records ? don?t stop with just one CD by Ben Paterson and his trio. Origin gives us no indication where Ben Paterson comes from, but I can tell you that musically, he comes from the long and honored tradition of piano cats with great chops. Paterson, who looks like a youngster from the photo, plays with authority; understands the piano bop tradition from note one; leaves space intelligently (notice the album title) and swings like a veteran. His trio includes Jake Vinsel, bass and Jon Deitmyer, drums. The trio gives us a well polished, straight ahead, no gimmicks menu of such delights as ?Whisper Not,? ?Alice In Wonderland,? ?I Wish I Knew,? ?Nardis,? ?Hymn To The Orient,? ?Dancing In The Dark,? ?Gloria's Step? and more. This is the essence of swinging, in the pocket, piano trio jazz. Raise your glass to young players such as these. They are the ones who will keep the tradition alive for years to come.
