Patrick Yandall releases new albums with the precision of a Swiss
movement. His newest project is entitled 10 South Riverside
and produced on his label Zangi Records. On his previous records he
collaborated with artists like Randy Brecker, Will Lee, Joel
Rosenblatt, Ada Rovatti, Scott Wilkie, Andre Mayeux, and Nathan Brown.
Todays Patrick feels comfortable performing and producing his albums
himself. So did he on A Journey Home, Ethos and on
his new album. Patrick has written all songs on his new album except
Breezin', which was composed by Bobby Womack.
Patrick sets a musical monument to the well-known English actor and
comedian Rowan Atkinson with Mr. Bean, a gracefully played
theme, driving and elegant at the same time. The Samba tune Kona Boy
has a certain Mezzoforte flair.
Breezin' was a song of the popular soul singer Bobby Womack,
who died in 2014. Gabor Szabo performed the song on his album High
Contrast (1970). Six years later George Benson became with his
version a superstar.
Patrick performs this cover throughout spritzy.
Sunrise In Monroe is Patrick's tribute to this marvelous city
in Michigan. The beauty of the song underscores Patrick's pronounced
affection for this city. With Free Flight Patrick honors the
recently deceased guitar legend Chuck Loeb. On Thumbs Up
Patrick leaves plenty of room for other instruments like vintage
organ, xylophone, and drums giving the piece some acid jazz flavor.
I don't know, what kind of place you will find at 10 South Riverside.
After Patrick Yandall's music this must be a vital city with a
well-functioning, confident and buoyant society. I remember an album
by Chuck Loeb called Memory Lane. Patrick's own memories are
taken from a colorful world. With Momma T, Its Always Been You,
Thunder Road, Hermosa, Albany Park and Jump Back James
Patrick is not stingy delivering other acoustic stimuli.
When you’re just craving good music with enduring qualities, then
Patrick Yandall's songs are hidden jewels awaiting the exploration of
