Mark Patterson Mark Patterson

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). In the concert hall, he appeared as soloist with the Ridgefield (CT) Symphony (including a trombone-premier of music from Eddie Sauter's Focus); and in the sections of such aggragations as the New York Pops, the Gotham Wind Symphony, the Concordia Orchestra, and the Central City Opera. He freely admits to having performed in Broadway shows (recently in “South Pacific” and “Spamalot”), and the trivia expert might detect his work in film scores. He champions new music with the ensemble Nobles of the Mystic Shrine. He also collects pencils, and has studied how to use them with Donald Keats, Bob Brookmeyer, Manny Albam, and Jim McNeely. The results have been performed or recorded by Convergence, the Westchester Jazz Orchestra, the Gotham Wind Symphony, the BMI Jazz Composers' Orchestra, and the aforementioned Nobles, among others

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
