This release presents two complete original albums showcasing Sonny Stitt in a quartet setting with organist Don Patterson: Low Flame (Jazzland JLP971; 1962) and Feelin's (Roost LPS2247; 1962). On the two LPs, the group is completed by Paul Weeden on guitar and Billy James on drums. While Stitt and Patterson cut plenty of albums together, the sessions included here mark the entire recorded output by this exact quartet.
Bobby Patterson's I Get My Groove From You is a gritty 20-track collection of the Texas soul singer's '70s recordings, 19 of them recorded between 1971-1973 for Paula, one ("Right Place, Wrong Time") for All Platinum in 1977. He never had any hits, but Patterson's low-down delivery and the backing band's tough-as-nails sound deliver an enjoyable punch. He wrote most of the tunes here, focusing mainly on extracurricular affairs and their fallout.
