Mark Patterson, a Convergence member since 2000, attempts to keep a variety of music playing on his collection of twentieth-century trombones. He explored the roads of Japan with section-mates Jim Pugh, Bill Watrous, and David Taylor in Dave Matthews' Manhattan Jazz Orchestra; and toured the US and Europe with the Maria Schneider Jazz Orchestra, the Vanguard Jazz Orchestra, Barbra Streisand, and Steely Dan. He appeared or recorded with jazz artists Clark Terry, Sir Roland Hanna, Charli Persip, Jaki Byard, Dale Bruning, Eddie Palmieri, John Pizzarelli, Tom Pearson, The Westchester Jazz Orchestra, and the Gotham Jazz Orchestra (Mike Holober)...
