Album Notes
Patrick Prouty is one of the more dynamic musical voices to emerge out of the Motor City in recent years. Having recently completed a lengthy tenure as a member of soul legend Bettye Lavette’s road band, the in-demand bassist has decided to focus on a more personalized musical vision. The Charmed Life, Prouty’s debut as a leader, is a muscular, straight-ahead release featuring pianist Phil Kelly, vibraphonist Rob Pipho and drummer Bill Higgins, Jr.

The Charmed Life
I\'m not surprised this won 2008 Detroit Music Award. Pat, in addition to being a top-flight bassist, he composes varied and open-ended; accessible tunes that feature the improvising skills of Detroit\'s finest sidemen.
