February 11, 2015 | Seven Days: Will Patton Ensemble review
We enjoyed reading Vermont "Seven Days" recent review of Will Patton's December 2014 release, Time's Arrow. Reflecting on the CD's theme and title, Dan Bolles writes, the project "is defined by a palpable sense of nostalgia, wistful whimsy and a delicate tinge of melancholy that suggests Patton is considering the impermanence of music, love and perhaps life itself. Like Mick says, 'It's here and then it's gone.'
If that all seems a little grandiose for a gypsy-jazz record, maybe it is. But it's hard not to be seduced by the album's sly, winking charm and rich passion. As always, whether on tenor and seven-string guitar or mandolin, Patton performs with bare emotion. The precision and grace of his technique are rivaled only by the personality with which he plays."
