Pianist, composer and arranger Jeb Patton has been described as both a "young phenom" and an "absolute great," earning a well-regarded reputation in the international jazz community. On his MAXJAZZ piano series debut, New Strides, the multi-talented Patton shows great expression and energy on this exciting release. Accompanying him is bassist David Wong and drummer Pete Vannostrand. Special guests include two of the legendary Heath Brothers; saxophonist Jimmy and drummer Albert "Tootie" Heath.
"He is a player of great expression, bringing to the surface every little vignette that gives a song its depth and character."
All About Jazz
"Patton’s playing is consistently a joy throughout...there’s an immediate kick every time he enters with a solo. He utilizes expert technical control to manipulate time in such a way as to make it tactical and full. His attack of the keys is crisp and bright."
