Straight from the Heart (New 2LP)Patrice Rushen
The definitive edition of Patrice Rushen’s landmark album from 1982, ‘Straight From The Heart’.
Recorded during Elektra’s drive for ‘sophisticated dance music’ as many jazz artists created their own arrangements of disco and boogie, the sessions marked a progression for Patrice as she began exploring sonics as much as songwriting. “I was looking at different ways to experiment with the sounds on my records. Synths widened the palette available to us.”
