CD of the Month - April 2014

The KCCK Featured CD for April is "Essential Elements" by Ben Paterson. Based in Chicago for many years, the pianist was an integral member of saxophonist Von Freeman's ensemble starting in 2005 and performed with him regularly until the jazz master's passing in 2012. Last year, Paterson made his way to New York City and has since worked at many of the premiere jazz venues there. For his first release since making his move, Paterson presents a fresh take on a number of standards as well as some compelling original compositions in a standard trio format. "Essential Elements" is from MaxJazz Records.
