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.

Running Low Sets

Chick Webb & Ella Fitzgerald

Too easily and too often, music of the swing era is disregarded as being "for dancers." Chick and Ella made sure it was for listeners as well. But what's more, Chick's decision to take his unheard-of power, and his orchestra's great musicianship, and lay it all at the feet of a masterful vocalist, made sure his music would be for the ages.

Duke Ellington

Ellington entered the '30s having perfected his method of using the group to experiment with arranging and orchestrating. He relied on ideas from his musicians, and wrote for them as individuals rather than as anonymous section players. With all that work and a line-up of marvelous, distinctive musical voices, Ellington began the most creative period of his life.


Charlie Parker

“Fellow pilgrims, the quest for the legendary Dean Benedetti collection has ended. Presented on these 7 CDs, this collection is not for dilettantes. To those, however, who understand and appreciate Parker as a genius, I can unreservedly recommend it.” – Ira Gitler, Jazz Times


Eddie Condon & Bud Freeman

Harder, faster, more focused on personality and soloing than ensembles, the music attracted others who enjoyed palling around and blowing free. This is jazz that seemed naturally born in smoky back rooms and saloons. And you were always guaranteed a fine time.


Stan Getz

Chronologically, these sessions for Norman Granz fell just after the quintet dates with Raney, before Getz had risen to the dizzying heights of extreme popularity and when he was still basking in the glow of his stint as part of Woody Herman’s Four Brothers saxophone section.
