"Generous, talented and smart: Patrick Lamb is Portland's 'renaissance man.' Mayor Sam Adams"
““Patrick Lamb is very good at capturing the essence of various sax icons, from Johnny Hodges and Lester Young on this tune, to Coltrane on “Moment’s Notice.” (Review of Zanzibar performance with Diane Schuur)””
"I HAVE always thought this kind of music that Patrick offers is and should be joyful and FUN both on the giving and the receiving end! So here's the deal: underneath his irrepressible self is a guy who is on the most pro around. A huge personality and passion for both craft and performance!!!"
"Lamb clearly has mastered the chops and the theory necessary to be a world-class musician. But there's something deeper at play, and it's a joy to experience it as a listener and, especially, as a fellow performer: a real soul connection with the music itself and the musicians around him."
"In the tradition of Maceo Parker, saxophonist for everyone from James Brow and Parliment to Red Hot Chili Peppers, Lamb celebrates upbeat, melody-driven funk with a wholesome feel. He getsa little sexy with you in the solos, but it's back to the groove before it goes to far."
“Patrick Lamb is so powerful on stage! His passion for the music truly exudes...every performance is captivating! Patrick never fails to engage with his audience...remarkable!”
"Patrick's new recording is excellent. Portland has a tradition of great bands such as Pleasure and the Jeff Lorber Fusion. Patrick is right there with them. Lot's of stars for this one!" - David Garibaldi
