John Patton — Got a Good Thing Goin’

“The Yodel” is my jam!  It opens organist John Patton’s 1966 Blue Note release Got a Good Thing Goin’.  Grant Green (gt) is killing as always and Hugh Walker (dr) and Richard Landrum (pc) sounds great.  This is a very spirited and exciting record–one of my favorite in the “soul jazz” vein.  Having percussion adds a lot, and with Patton and Green I don’t miss a horn in the front line at all.

    This one looks and sounds like it’s in pretty good shape considering these were “git down” party records. Great stuff.

      Yeah it is–judging by all of the trashed James Brown and Jimmy McGriff LP’s I’ve seen, these party records were played to death.

    They were bought to be played, not collected 🙂
    Besides a new LP would be out in 4 months or so…
