Patterns in Jazz is an album by American saxophonist Gil Mellé recorded in 1956 and released on the Blue Note label.[1]


The Allmusic review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine awarded the album 4½ stars and stated "Gil Melle's debut album for Blue Note, is filled with bright, bold colors and identifiable patterns that camouflage how adventurous the work actually is. On the surface, the music is cool and laid-back, but close listening reveals the invention in Melle's compositions and arrangements of the standards... Ultimately, Patterns in Jazz is cerebral music that swings -- it's entertaining, but stimulating".[2] Template:Album ratings
