Nelson Patton with Lonnie Holley
Nelson Patton is an experimental duo of looped trombone (Dave Nelson) and drums & Moog bass pedals (Marlon Patton). The result is a sound that is greater than the sum of its parts as the two musicians continue to layer and develop motifs into elaborate textures and interlocking grooves. Along The Way was recorded in Dave’s personal studio in upstate New York over three days and features Lonnie Holley on vocals. The eleven songs on the album, chosen from dozens of improvised pieces, reflect the spirit of their expansive live shows.
Dave Nelson – trombone and loops
Marlon Patton – drums, Moog bass
Lonnie Holley – vocals
