Patrice Rushen

Real Name:
Patrice Louise Rushen
Profile:
Grammy Award-winning American R&B, Disco and Jazz vocalist, composer, classically trained pianist, keyboards player, producer, music director, and educator. Aside from the piano, Rushen can also play numerous other instruments including the flute and the clarinet, as well as various kinds of percussion.

Born 30 September 1954 in Los Angeles, California, USA. Her signature sound can be described as a sophisticated composition of R&B, jazz, and funk styles. Winning a competition at the 1972 Monterey Jazz Festival gained Rushen national attention, which earned her a recording contract with Prestige Records in 1973. After recording three albums and becoming an in-demand session player, with artists that included Jean-Luc Ponty, Rushen signed with Elektra Records in 1978.
