American jazz organist and pianist.

Also known as 'Big' John Patton.

Born : July 12, 1935 in Kansas City, Missouri.

Died : March 19, 2002 in Montclair, New Jersey.

John Patton has started his career as pianist with the [a=Lloyd Price] touring band from 1954 to 1959, before moving to New York. Once there, he began to make the transition from piano to organ and recorded with [a=Lou Donaldson] for [l=Blue Note] from 1962 to 1964.

In the mid 80's, Patton was rediscovered by a younger generation, particularly [a=John Zorn], who began using his sound on recordings and Patton continued to release new recordings into the 90's, including two on the Japanese label [l=DIW Records].
