Coming to jazz listeners in the straight-ahead/classic mode, this compact and lively CD collection of 10 selections by guitarist/composer Patrick Greene and his trio will delight, entertain, and thrill the listening audience with its orginality. Take a listen to the innovative "Woofspidah" and "Smooth Corners" and you will be hooked on the easy, mellowness of these performances.
Jeff Pittson is one of the finest Hammond B-3 organ performers around, and he is in top form on this collection along with the musical chops of gifted Eddie Marshall on drums. Patrick Greene is a superb guitarist, and this collection showcases his unique style.
Greene's melodic style is evident in every song, and gently jazzy in the classic "Isfahan," where his playing is flawless. To sum up Greene's performances as a guitar player, two words: Flawless and melodic.
If you are looking for something different, give the Patrick Greene Trio a listen, for they are good and fresh and entertaining. SMOOTH CORNERS is a five-star winner.
