ADD TO WISHLIST


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!
 
  Awesome
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.

Running Low Sets



Jimmie Lunceford (7 CDs)

"While every Mosaic set I own is outstanding, Mosaic sometimes produces a set so superlative as to be an heirloom quality product. The Complete Jimmie Lunceford Decca Sessions is one of those sets." - Customer review

----------------------------------------------- <

Earl Hines (7 CDs)

“"There are very few long-playing sides which equal the first two in this set for spirit, drive, swing, bristling ensembles and infectious solos. At the time they were recorded, in 1939-40, Count Basie’s band was all the rage, but man for man, and arrangement for arrangement, the Hines band could battle it on its own terms and come away with colors flying.” - Stanley Dance

-----------------------------------------------

Rosemary Clooney (5 CDs)

“Rosemary was an unparalleled storyteller. Her precise intonation and spot-on sense of rhythm took full advantage of any song that gave her the leeway to swing the beat and pop the lyric.
