An amazing bass player who did some session work in the '80s before joining Chick Corea's Elektric (and later Akoustic) Band. An eponymous debut (produced by Corea and featuring fellow Band-mate Dave Weckl) topped the jazz charts and a star was born. Whether playing a 6-string bass like a lead guitar or bowing an acoustic bass, Patitucci's unconventional approach to the instrument has fueled a successful solo career as a smooth fusion artist. In the mid-90s, he switched from GRP to the Concord Jazz label, dropping from the Jazz Top 20 but also exploring new styles like Brazilian music.
