Product Notes

Patrick began the trumpet at the age of 8 while in elementary school in Monroe, CT. He learned to read music at the age of 6 when he learned the Tin Whistle. Irish music was offered at the Gaelic American Club his family was apart of. When he went to Masuk high school he met Dr. Roybn Gangi, a Temple University Alumni, who sparked a consuming interest in music. A family friend, Don Rice, let him play trumpet with his Dixieland group at several new years eve parties from the ages of 13 to 16. This was the first time improving with a group. He studied classical technique with Jim Ranti and Tom Frez while in Connecticut. Patrick was accepted into Western Connecticut State College where he played with the Big Band and small group ensembles. He performed with guest artist Joe Lovano and Bob Mintzer. While in CT he played with several groups: Litmus, an experimental jazz group, The Prognostic Mutation Orchestra, a free jazz large ensemble and Arlido Desouza a Brazilian guitar player who played many of the Brazilian standards. Being a horn player Patrick was apart of the Ska scene in the mid 90's. The last band he was in was The Sifters. The first Ska band was The Snappers who recorded two sides Sex, Drugs and Ska and Trick Noisemakers which was released independently. After meeting Terell Stafford at the Litchfield Jazz Camp as his ensemble coach in 1999, he became aware of Temple University at it's' highly acclaimed jazz program. Two years later at 23 he would attend Temple U. and study with Mr. Stafford. During the two years before Temple he formed his own group, Center of Gravity. Mostly the group played originals but would also play the music of Freddie Hubbard. The group played in New Haven, CT at a monthly gig at Rudy's. Once Patrick reached Philadelphia he found a large amount of music the varied from hard-bop, singer/songwriters, free jazz, swing bands, Balkan brass bands, gypsy music, Big Bands and experimental rock groups to play with. While at Temple University under Terell Stafford he was afforded the opportunity to perform with Jon Faddis with the Big Band at the Midwest Clinic in Chicago. He performed with local Philly bands the West Philadelphia Orchestra, The Wildness, a Louie Prima tribute group, OudBlues, Naja, Bobby Zankel and the Warriors of the Wonderful Sound. By the end of college he met Melody Gardot. He began performing with her in January of 2005. He recorded on Worrisome Heart ( Goodnite) and once she was signed played on the major label debut (UniversalUK) My One and Only Thrill. Grammy award winning Larry Klein produced it shortly after working with Herbie Hancock. Patrick has toured with Melody first with Worrisome Heart where they toured each coasts of the US and Canada and Europe including the European Jazz Festival circuit. Festivals include Newport, Montreal, Toronto, Montreux, North Sea, Nice, Blue Note, Istanbul and Tokyo Jazz Festivals. They also performed at the esteemed Kennedy Center in Washington DC and the Kimmel Center in Philadelphia, PA. In promotion of the CD My One and Only Thrill the group was able to perform on The Late Show with David Letterman and Live on Jools Holland in London. Most recently Patrick has a debut CD called Herevibe. In sextet form he features Philadelphia piano player Tom Lawton. Along side Tom he features Miss Gardots' rhythm section Chuck Staab on drums and Ken Pendergast on upright bass and 8-string.
