Patto – And That’s Jazz – CD & DVD

Band: Patto

Label: Think Like A Key Music

Format: CD/DVD


Audio and video collection of UK progressive eccentrics Patto at the height of their powers on stage in the form of a previously unreleased recording of the band rocking and looning at the Torrington in London in January 1973, plus their surviving TV appearances from 1971.

The Patto’s virtuosity and eclecticism are in full swing as they perform an inspired set which includes most of their (then current) third album, Roll ‘Em Smoke ‘Em, to an enthusiastic but intimate crowd. Includes a never released Halsall composition “I’m Baroque” about their foreshortened tour of Australia supporting Joe Cocker. The previously unreleased footage includes the ‘Pop Deux’ broadcast from French TV and the full session for German TV’s ‘Beat Club’ with blistering performances of “San Antone” and “The Man”. The historical recordings of a band whose legacy only grows are valuable treasures which transcend sonic limitations. “…This album manages to conjure up all those feelings of the true magic of music.” -Monolith Cocktail
