He's played with Sam Rivers and Sigur Ros; for flying cars (Chitty-Chitty, Bang-Bang) and flying ladies (Mary Poppins), although not while flying; for Mickey (mouse that is) and Konishiki. His professional performing experience includes all styles of music but has remained tethered to jazz and Broadway for the last several years. 

Since moving to Tokyo in 2007, Pat has continued performing in a variety of groups, playing with artists including Lisa Ono, Seiko Matsuda, and Junko Yagami, as well as backing up jazz artists like Eric Alexander, Dick Oatts, and Eddie Henderson while o tour in Japan. He can be seen around Tokyo at venues like the Blue Note, Cotton Club, Motion Blue, and Body and Soul as well as at some of the many world-class hotels. He released his first album as a leader "Who's On Bass" featuring Cyrus Chestnut and Carl Allen in 2014.
