The Zodiac Suite, composed by Mary Lou Williams (1910-1981), is a musical exploration of the twelve astrological signs. Originally for piano trio, Pattishall has re-arranged the suite to include trumpet and saxophone. The quintet's approach accentuates the dance elements of the Suite and sharpens its edges, bringing into focus the instantaneous shifts of mood and pulse in Williams' music.

Pattishall has performed the Zodiac Suite at Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola and Trinity Church Wall Street in New York City, and the recently-opened National Sawdust in Brooklyn.
