Gentle, intelligent music

If you're getting bored with Smooth Jazz, try this album. It's easy on the ears, but also rewards your attention with intricate and imaginative settings.

evidently good

patitucci has done a remarkable job here, this album is terrific. "evidence" is one of the best examples of modern acoustic jazz trio, everything is there, what a magnificent combination of groove, math-jazz, nice melodies and wonderfull guitar sound! drummer brian blade also madly plays like heaven. i love this work, it would reconciliate the jazz-rock-fusion maniac with classical music. grab it.

Very nice fusion of classical and jazz

Wow. This is a great Patitucci cd. If you like his other stuff, you'll love this one. It's nice to see more of his classical influences showing rather than just latin jazz. It reminded me of his "Heart of the Bass" cd, but a little more polished and with a lot more pure jazz tracks. Overall it's a great cd for both jazz and classical listeners. Download the whole thing.

They Say All Music Guide

John Patitucci’s Line by Line is mostly a quiet and thoughtful affair. The performances often feature close interplay between the bassist and guitarist Adam Rogers, with stimulating support from drummer Brian Blade and occasional guest appearances by the great tenor Chris Potter. The music is adventurous but often lyrical, with Patitucci being a key soloist but not completely dominating the performances, giving his sidemen plenty of space of their own. It is interesting to hear the mellow-toned Rogers rocking out a bit on Thelonious Monk’s “Evidence.” In addition to a Patitucci-Rogers duet on “Nana” and a closing solo electric bass solo on “Tone Poem,” two selections add a string quartet and one has a string quintet. Of these, “Theme and Variations for 6-String Bass and Strings” is a major third stream work that reminds listeners that John Patitucci is a very skilled composer in addition to being one of jazz’s finest bassists. Recommended. This CD was nominated in 2007 for a Grammy award as Best Jazz Instrumental Album (Individual or Group). – Scott Yanow
