Patti Austin (born: 10. August. 1950) is an American R&B, pop and jazz singer.
"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. With Patti Austin’s latest release Avant Gershwin currently heating up the jazz charts, there is renewed interest in her work, and Intimate Patti Austin presents a perfect overview of this remarkable artist’s tender side."
