Patrick O'Hearn

An unlikely new age stalwart and musical renaissance man, composer/multi-instrumentalist Patrick O'Hearn started his career as a prominent jazz bassist (Charles Lloyd, Dexter Gordon), then became a Frank Zappa sideman, and later found fame as the bass player/synthesist for new wave group Missing Persons. Turning to electronic music, his first album of keyboard instrumentals, Ancient Dreams, was produced by Peter Baumann and released in 1990 on Private Music, Baumann's own label. O'Hearn signed to Windham Hill, resulting in several popular and critically acclaimed recordings, then went on to self-release several Grammy-nominated albums. His bass-heavy, hypnotic compositions have garnered him attention in Hollywood, where he has composed several film scores.

Born in Los Angeles and raised in Oregon, O'Hearn was exposed to a wide variety of music by his parents, who were both working musicians. Though he studied cello, violin, and flute, he gained early experience playing bass with his parents' lounge act. As his musicianship began to excel, he found himself accompanying jazz greats like Joe Henderson, Joe Pass, Tony Williams, and Charles Lloyd. While living in San Francisco in the mid-'70s, he played with Frank Zappa and co-founded the visionary progressive band Group 87 with Mark Isham and Peter Maunu before joining Missing Persons. O'Hearn's solo style reflects all of these experiences within the context of a highly personal electronic sound. With the dawn of the new millennium, O'Hearn began releasing his own production albums, beginning with So Flows the Current. ~ Linda Kohanov

I gave up on radio long ago. THANKS Pandora for allowing one to be introduced to wonderful artists. O'Hearn was raised in the best state and I'm from the East. Gorgeous music.

I'm surprised not to see Indigo in the Pandora discography. That album was a welcome transition to a more brooding tone in his work and it solidified my interest in electronic music at the beginning of the 90s.

Eyes and MUSIC are the windows of the soul. Patrick, you are a fine soul. Thank you for sharing, intimately.

Mr. rford1960. O'Hearn's work would most probably be classified as a minimalist genre. I am not so familiar with his work with the jazz greats in which he may have really displayed some serious musicianship . That being said, the work of minimalism is not meant to rank with those of virtuoso greats. It is all about capturing a mood...the ambiance. Some like it--some can't stand it. But to speak with such disparaging terms about another's art--unless you find it THAT offensive... i s it necess

As ambient music I find it more listenable than most. It's fantastic driving music.

Sorry folks; it's nice and fluffy, pink and soothing like Pepto Bismol (great simile angeltrumpet 4 ) . At best, it's pleasant. The musicianship is, maybe, junior college level. Yeah, I know, I'm jealous of Mr. O'Hearn's fame, wealth, next-to-godl i n e s s , etc. If O'Hearn's music appears to be such a transcendent a l experience for some of you, I bet feminine hygiene commercials take you to other galaxies, far, far, away. Man, that was a lot of work just to mildly nudge (maybe) a poster or two.

Invoking Prayerful Contemplatio n : Well-being can be cultivated for optimal healthy full-functio n i n g humanness; indeed, it's not so much an absence of 'dis-ease', but the presence of well-being which is what settles in & gradually transforms our level of consciousnes s & being on the continuum from unhealthy to healthy -- optimal full-functio n i n g well-being illuminating and renewing the world ... AMEN (So is it, or So shall it be)
