MICHAEL PATTO – Time To Be Right – Imagine Records
British musician, songwriter and producer. Son of Mike Patto (of Spooky Tooth, Patto, Timebox and Boxer (fame), he started on bass guitar but switched to piano in his late teens and started writing songs.
His one and only album as a solo artist, “Time To Be Right”, is a soft breeze of genres mixing stylised Euro-pop, soul and smooth Westcoast pop.
There’s several pieces of fine Euro-pop on songs like “So Much For The Lovin´”, “Few Good Moments” or “What Can I Do”. But also a strong Westcoast feeling on “Calling”, the smooth “The Very Thought Of You” and “Don’t Say A Word”. The ballad “Hold On” sounds pretty American L.A. session style.
Tracklist: So Much For The Lovin’, Calling, Few Good Moments, Hold On, Paradise Has Gone, (I’ve Got) Love Enough For Two, Time To Be Right, The Very Thought Of You, Moondance, What Can I Do & Don’t Say A Word.
