Walt Dickerson Quartet - Impressions Of A Patch Of Blue album download
Impressions of a Patch of Blue is a 1966 album by vibraphonist Walt Dickerson with keyboardist Sun Ra in a rare appearance as a sideman. It is the last album Dickerson recorded before his decade long sabbatical from jazz before his comeback in the mid-1970s. The album is relatively mainstream considering the work of the contributing musicians. An interesting detail though, is that Sun Ra plays the harpsichord, an instrument rarely used in a jazz setting
And he turns in a masterful supporting performance behind Dickerson, putting his own indelible stamp on the proceedings without ever overwhelming them. Witness "Bacon and Eggs," where Dickerson repeats a melodic theme for most of the piece while Ra's unorthodox reharmonizations dance about in the background. Ra's harpsichord also provides some otherworldly cascades that seem to spark Dickerson's sense of freedom, particularly on part two of "A Patch of Blue" and "High Hopes.
Impressions of a Patch of Blue was the second time Walt Dickerson recorded an album of rearranged movie soundtrack pieces, following his interpretations of material from Lawrence of Arabia. Starring Sidney Poitier, A Patch of Blue was about a star-crossed pair of interracial lovers, with the twist that Elizabeth Hartman's character also happened to be blind. More important to jazz fans, though, is that the album marked one of Sun Ra's extremely rare appearances as a sideman, playing both piano and harpsichord.

Its chamber dynamics, multiharmonic precision, compelling swing and iridescently free balladry mark this Jazz variation of Jerry Goldsmith film themes as an unforgettable tone poem to gentle fascinate the cautious ear, and boldly stir the adventurous soul. Likewise for drummer Roger Blank, boiling with rhythm, simmered and stirred to a tempestuous tee. With the vibraphonist, these men form a quartet for the ages.
