Intimate Patti Austin

Limited Edition

1 CD -  $12.98


Featuring James Ingram, Kirk Whalum, David Foster, Bob James, Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis, and Dave Grusin

With a voice that is capable of convincingly interpreting virtually any style of material, Patti Austin is one of the most astoundingly gifted singers of her generation. Here Patti caresses twelve timeless melodies with great sensitivity and emotional depth, taking the listener on a warmly romantic journey.

Intimate Patti Austin is the first in Mosaic Contemporary’s Intimate Series, presenting the "best of the best" ballad interpretations from an artist's entire recorded output for several labels. From her wonderful version of the classic Stylistics hit “Stop, Look, Listen” to the first recording of the now standard Ivan Lins/Alan & Marilyn Bergman gem “The Island”, this collection takes the listener through the many passionate feelings of love found, lost, and renewed. Also featuring a superb version of Patti’s own “In My Life” and a swooning take on “Cry Me A River” from her wonderful collection of standards, The Real Me. Intimate Patti Austin presents a perfect overview of this remarkable artist’s tender side.

  Great job, Mosaic Contemporary! This reissue is fantastic!
I can now put away my hard-to-find Japanese import of this CD because this new remaster blows it away! Great sound (thanks to the 24-bit remastering by Greg Calbi at Sterling Sound) and stellar packaging and liner notes. Kudos to Greg Larson's wonderful graphic design for this reissue (the guy knows his tasteful typefaces, that's for sure!). It would be great if Mosaic Contemporary could remaster "Every Home Should Have One" - and that title alone is most appropriate!
I typically don't purchase compilations because I feel I'm being cheated of all the other tracks on the original effort. If you're not an Austin-ite or Patti Austin completist you won't go wrong purchasing this one. Some great mood songs are here.

“Some of these quartets – particularly with gospel-charged pianist Les McCann-are as ingratiating and ear-friendly as any first-rate straight-ahead jazz you’re likely to hear.” - Jeff Simon, Buffalo News


Oliver Nelson (6 CDs)

“Oliver Nelson was perhaps the greatest jazz orchestrator and composer of the postwar era. This set which contains 15 albums and 100 tracks is a testament to Nelson’s frenetic activity and to the quality of his music” – Will Friedwald, The New York Sun
