PATRICE RUSHEN
American singer, composer, pianist, and recording artist.

Born: 30 September 1954 in Los Angeles, California, USA.

Grammy Award-winning American R&B, Disco and Jazz vocalist, composer, classically trained pianist, keyboards player, producer, music director, and educator. Rushen also plays multiple instruments including the flute, clarinet and various kinds of percussion.

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.

Her signature sound is a melding of Jazz/R&B/Funk fusion.
