iTunes Review

Bassist John Patitucci has played with such luminaries as Wayne Shorter, Roy Haynes, and Jack DeJohnette, but he’s also recorded more than a dozen albums as a leader. On 2009’s Remembrance, Patitucci, saxophonist Joe Lovano, and drummer Brian Blade comprise a group that displays impressive range on 11 originals. The album opens with “Monk/Trane,” a composition based on “Giants Steps,” which features alert, nimble playing throughout. Another nod to Coltrane, the impressionistic “Meditations,” showcases Patitucci on electric six-string bass. “Messaien’s Gumbo” brings out the group’s funky side; Blade’s cliché-free drumming on the track is outstanding. “Mali,” a tribute to the singer and guitarist Ali Farka Touré, captures the rhythm section creating an African-inflected groove as Lovano plays catchy shards of melody. “Scenes from an Opera” sports a lush string arrangement, rumbling drums, and Lovano’s mysterious clarinet tones. The closing title track, a tribute to the late saxophonist Michael Brecker, finds a solo Patitucci overdubbing electric six-string piccolo bass on top of electric bass.

John is not capable of making a bad record. Each new release just gets better and better! Thanks for the great music.

John+Joe+Brian=Great Jazz

There have been many great bass players in Jazz history....Paul Chambers, Richard Davis, Scott La Faro, Charlie Haden, Gary Peacock, Ron Carter, Stanley Clarke, Jimmy Garrison, Dave Holland, Jaco Pastorius, Buster Williams, Charles Mingus and many others. I consider John Patitucci among these players now. Nuff said.

One of the top bassists of the 1990s (on both acoustic and electric), Patitucci's speed, very clear tone, and versatility are quite impressive. He started playing bass when he was 11, grew up in Northern California, and in 1978 moved south near Los Angeles. He played with Gap Mangione (1979) while going to college, and during 1982-1985 worked in Los Angeles with Tom Scott, Robben Ford, Stan Getz, Larry Carlton, Dave Grusin, Ernie Watts, Freddie Hubbard, and others, in addition to becoming a studio...
