Patrice Rushen is a genius and this album Straight From The Heart is a must have classic.
Of course the unforgettable Forget Me Nots is here but it seems as every song is unforgettable. From All We Need to the magnificent Remind Me to the incredible Where There Is Love, Patrice Rushen keeps the jams comin.
And if you REALLY want to jam just put on that Number One, a very great instrumental that keeps you movin. Patrice Rushen was one of the greats that got lost in the shuffle
One of the most prolific and underrated musicians out there, Patrice Rushen has had a stellar career contributing her funk to the likes of Stanley Clarke, Jean Luc Ponty, and George Duke among others.
This is an all around artist who actually writes, plays multiple instruments and sings. Not some pop "diva" bolstered to fake stardom by millions of dollars from the Big 5, or even constant radio airplay.
Patrice Rushen is the real deal funkateer that many true musicians respect. If you don't know, you had better ask somebody!
