“ A long time ago, I believe it was in 1995, during the Yonder Tree recording, I was in need of saxophonist to play a solo. I had tried a few excellent players who had come from every corner of the country who had by then become Portlanders. After 3 or 4 ‘ not quite rights’ I decided to follow my engineer’s advice and give a young kid named Patrick Lamb a try. From the moment Patrick hit the first note I knew we were going to work together for a long time. Just great all around player who understands what is needed at any given moment. Happy to call Patrick a member of the band and my friend.
On his new record “Beauty and the Beast”, Patrick is showing great taste and a mature restraint. along with a precise certainty of what he wants to communicate. Makes a tune open to many, many listens. Congrats Pat.
“Awesome set of songs here—by an saxophone artist who’s time has indeed come!
Congrats, Patrick on a wonderful album!
