BEN PATERSON – FOR ONCE IN MY LIFE

Another Best of 2015 jazz release from an established jazz virtuoso. Paterson, a piano virtuoso has also made his mark on the Hammond B-3 organ, infuses new light into classics like “Cry My A River” and also serves up surprises like his take on “50 Ways to Leave Your Lover.” If you have been fortunate enough to catch the Bobby Broom Organi-Sation you already know Paterson’s power on his instrument. Here, Paterson proves an effective band leader weaving his organ around rhythms set by drummer George Fludas and guitarist Peter Bernstein. Check out the opening track, “Cuban Chant.”
