Rahsaan Patterson BB Kings 2013


We now take some time to revisit the discography of Rahsaan Patterson to select what we consider to be his best songs. The singer has released six albums over the past two+ decades and has a catalog of music we’d definitely say has gone under appreciated.

Rahsaan’s unique blend of soul music really stands out because he always gives us textures that feel familiar but sound nothing like anything else out there. We can easily say that each of the albums he has released so far has been of quality and creating a list of those songs wasn’t as easy as we expected.

The singer may not have always gotten the recognition he deserves in terms of air play but there is no reason many of these songs couldn’t have been big hits. Like we always try to do, we included an extensive honorable mention section so that we could showcase plenty of additional great songs that fell just outside the top 10.
