About the Album

Exploring music from a modern perspective while maintaining an emphasis on melodic improvisation and a groove firmly rooted in the tradition, Chicago pianist Ben Paterson's debut recording "Breathing Space," makes a bold statement as to why he is a highly regarded fixture at all of Chicago's jazz clubs and a regular in the band of tenor legend, Von Freeman. Ben draws from his influences of Bill Evans, Ahmad Jamal, and Oscar Peterson to create a swinging group sound with two of Chicago's finest, like-minded young musicians, Jake Vinsel and Jon Deitemyer.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
