Will Patton Trio


Will Patton ~ mandolin 

Thal Aylward ~ violin

Dono Schabner ~ guitar

Over the course of 5 CDs and 15 years of performing from California to Paris, The Will Patton trio has developed an astonishingly rich stew of acoustic music that includes Gypsy swing, musette, bebop and jazz standards, country waltzes and Brazilian choros and sambas. Will Patton, called by jazzmando.com "one of a handful of jazz mandolin global titans" leads the group which features New England legend Thal Aylward on violin and well respected master guitarist Dono Schabner. Their latest CD, "Flow", received a 'Tammy' from the Times Argus as the Instrumental Album of the Year and was selected by Vermont Public Radio as one of the top jazz releases of 2012.

  " . . .  ah, musicians who listen to each other - what a treat." -Terry Pender in Mandolin Quarterly

“With his direct, melody-driven style, Patton at times sounds like a more worldly Jethro Burns jamming with musical pals from Brazil, Paris and Harlem in the mid-1930s.” – Mandolin Magazine
