Bradley - Intangible was produced by Jeff
Lorber and released on Patrick's own label, Patrick's Song Factory. All songs on
the release were written by Patrick Bradley and Jeff Lorber. Intangible marks
Patrick's fourth release in ten years, and his third release with Jeff Lorber.
The 10-track release opens with Dear Friend, a lively, punchy track
where Patrick's talent as a keyboardist shines brightly, as does David Mann's
Next in the line-up is Funky Greens, which Patrick describes in the liner-notes as, "The
song originally was influenced by a trip to the beautiful and serene island of
Kauai. The rainforest, waterfalls and coastlines are spectacularly beautiful.
As I began writing the song it took on a vibe of its own. Staying with the
color green it became the funky jazz salad of Funky Greens." The song features Patrick and Jeff, along with Adam
Hawley on guitar, Jimmy Haslip on bass, and Gary Novak keeping the song flowing
on drums, and is fabulously funky Jazz.
Tailwind is a stunning composition with Paul Jackson, Jr. layering in
a guitar solo, Adam Hawley on rhythm guitar, Jimmy Haslip on bass, and David
Mann on horns, followed by On Tap,
with Michael Thompson taking over guitar duty, with David Mann on horns, and
Gary Novak on drums.
Next in the play list is the title track, Intangible, featuring Adam Hawley on
guitar, Jimmy Haslip on bass, David Mann on horns, and is one of my favorite
tracks on the release as it flows effortlessly. Find The Way features the multi-talented Jeff Lorber who switches
from synth bass and keyboards to guitar, then segues into Newport Coast that gets its west coast vibe with Adam Hawley on
guitar, Jimmy Haslip on bass, and Andrew Carney who layers in some wonderful
Change features Michael Thompson on guitar
and Jimmy Haslip on bass, Destiny
once again features Michael Thompson on guitar, and the blazing horns of David
Mann. The album finishes strongly with Out
Of Bounds that had me tapping my feet in rhythm.
Until next time, keep enjoying the music!
