Album Review

Smooth jazz trumpeter Patches Stewart teams up with bassist/producer Marcus Miller on Blow. Sounding like a total blend of mid-'60s and early-'90s Miles Davis, Stewart deftly mixes modal trumpet lines and punchy muted asides with funky processed beats. Taken as a whole, the album brings to mind Davis' Doo-Bop more than Kind of Blue, and in that sense it is a pleasingly adventurous post-bop/funk-jazz meets instrumental pop outing. Notably, Stewart's versions of Herbie Hancock's "Tell Me a Bedtime Story" and Stevie Wonder's "Overjoyed" showcase the trumpeter's mellow melodicism, while originals like "I Know What You Like" and "Congo Square" bring out a funky hip-hop influence. Alto saxophonist Kenny Garrett and others join Stewart here.

Stewart's Best to Date

I've been following this Patches Stewart for several years, especially his work with Marcus Miller, who produced this CD. Since Miller has written and produced music for many music legends, including Miles Davis and Luther Vandross, his "seal of approval" by producing for this artist speaks volumes. This is his Stewart's third CD, and there is truly something for everyone on this collection. My personal favorite is Bed Time Story, which sends me to a dreamy, ethereal place every time I hear it. Check it out.

Not bad at all...

There might be one or, maybe, two misses on this album, but it is still really solid. I am not quite sure that I would say that it sounds like Marcus Miller's work in a recognizable way. My only desire with Patches' solo work is that he would break loose and hit it constantly, which does happen every now and again. "Blow" with the subwoofers on high is...just nice, real nice. All in all, this is a highly recommended album.

very good sounds

funky all good
