Patti Austin (born August 10, 1950, in Harlem, New York) is an American Grammy-winning R&B and jazz music singer.

She made her debut at the Apollo Theater at age four and had a contract with RCA Records when she was only five. Quincy Jones and Dinah Washington have proclaimed themselves as her godparents.

By the late 1960s Austin was a prolific session musician and commercial ... Read more in Amazon's Patti Austin Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Every Home Should Have One... Copy of This Album ! April 16, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This has to be the best if not finest R&B Female Vocalist album of the 80's (that can definitely withstand the test of time)! Even the comedic and quirky sounding title-track is a rare gem.
My only disappointment was discovering that the c.d version of this album has a few seconds of the cool intro on Baby Come to Me lopped off (radio edit?) as opposed to the l.p. Also, a few of the tracks have been re-mastered or "enhanced" with additional instruments not on the regular l.p. (no-it's not because it's on c.d. and sounds clearer than an l.p.-- a trained ear knows these little sonic differences).
Aside from the technical or engineering sonic differences, every track is beautifully crafted and sung by Ms. Austin. You can hear it in her vocal talent and ability that she has a lifetime of natural skill and professional training behind her; What extraordinary finesse and style !
The producing and arranging from Quincy Jones has that familiar Michael Jackson-Off The Wall sound as well (which he also produced for Michael with Patti Austin singing background vocals).
The collaboration of Jones and Austin have given the world an example of what it is to produce an album (regardless of the genre) with equal amounts of excellent crafstmanship and talent from the producer and artist !!! 5 STARS ALL THE WAY!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Withstanding the Test of Time October 28, 2000
Format:Audio CD
I've always been amazed how someone as supremely talented as Patti Austin hasn't achieved greater recognition. She is one of the great treasures of the 1970s, 80s, 90s, and on into the next century. Her remarkable voice -- and, more than that -- her remarkable Heart, are important to this Earth of ours. This recording has withstood the test of time, and will continue to do so. A great artist.

I've been a fan of Patti Austin for goodness knows how long. I first heard her voice via the work she did back in the 70s with people like Bob James, Earl Klugh, Ron Carter, Hank Crawford, Eric Gale & Lee Ritenour. Aside from her extensive session work, she also had a very lucrative career singing jingles, apparently (as did Luther Vandross at the time). I then began to collect her albums, (of which she has many), on vinyl and they are all treasured. This is the only one I'll be transitioning to CD though as on the whole, I find Patti Austin is better enjoyed at home than on the road. Ironic really, considering this album's title.

I first heard Austin work with Quincy Jones on his 1978 album Sounds...And Stuff Like That!!, where she performed the stunning tunes "Love Me By Name", "Superwoman (Where Were You When I Needed You)" and the beautiful duet with Luther Vandross, "I'm Gonna Miss You In The Morning". Then there was "It's The Falling In Love", her duet with Michael Jackson on his 1979 album Off the Wall, and the brilliant Grammy Award-winning "Moody's Mood", her duet with George Benson on his 1980 album Give Me the Night, both Quincy Jones productions, of course.

But it was on Q's 1981 album The Dude that I thought Austin shone the brightest, giving stunning performances on songs like "Razzamatazz", "Turn On The Action", "Betcha' Wouldn't Hurt Me" and my personal favourite, "Somethin' Special".

5.0 out of 5 stars PLEASE RERELEASE!!!!!!!! October 12, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I guess everyone agrees that this is a great album. I just wish they would rerelease it, WITH the extended 12" version of DO YOU LOVE ME. It was a #1 dance track when originally released, and today still stands with the best of them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love Her to Death, Still... October 1, 2002
Format:Audio CD
...ready and waiting so, show me your stuff, give me the good times, I can't get enuff.
She's killin' me softly.
I still love hearing this stupendous CD. It's got those great Rod Temperton tunes, Q Jones production, Bruce Swedien's Acusonic Recording Process, players Phillinganes, Johnson, Foster, Robinson, Boddicker, Da Costa, et al, et al.
And the angelic sounds of one of the greatest voices ever.
Reach the Promised Land with Patti.

It's clear to see that Quincy produced this. It's a crystal clear, seemingly perfect mix of R&B/Dance/Rock, made all the more perfect by Austin's gorgeous singing, Jones' stellar musicians, and Bruce Swedien's masterful engineering. Each song is unique in its own way; it's one of those CDs that is such a treasure that one can't believe it's finished so soon. No doubt, once it does finish, you'll play it again.

4.0 out of 5 stars Every Home Should Have One... October 20, 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Ms. Austin starts by singing "Do you love me?" and takes it from there! This is a good album that I can play over and over again. Though she is primarily a jazz singer, her ability to perform Pop and R&B tunes shines here. My favorites, "Do you Love Me" and "Every Home should have one." I agree! Every home should have Patti Austin! Four stars!!
