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.

Editorial Reviews

2011 album from the Jazz vocalist. Sound Advice is a concept that Patti feels very deeply, and it shows in her music. Together with the brilliant keyboards and producer Greg Phillinganes, Patti takes on some of your all-time favorite classics and does them in ways that you never could imagine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sound Advice Indeed....from a professional May 24, 2011
Format:Audio CD
TRACK FOR TRACK SUPERIOR TO ANYTHING OUT THERE TODAY!

1. You Gotta Be - great song to start the cd with

2. By The Grace Of God- this is how power vocals are done when you can sing

3. Round And Round - sweet vocals

4. You Can't Always Get What You Want - interesting take on this classic - this will play very well live on tour!

5. Let 'Em In - like buttah.....smooth jazzy vocals that make me like this song more and more with each listen

6. Gotta Serve Somebody - love love love the semi-spoken vocals! Patti's voice is so soothing...and her high notes make you want to listen to this track over and over again.

7. Vincent - again....a voice that just smolders.....

8. A Little Bit Of Love - nice uptempo tune....again...sounds great here, but will play well live on tour!

9. Lean On Me - the only version of this song that I tolerate.....she just owns it from the first note....this has been all over the internet since she sang it to Q for his birthday....and I'm glad to have the studio version - at last~!

10. Give It Up - harkening back to her 1980's sound....this number works on so many levels....radio ready!

11. My Way - There is always something special to be heard when it's just Patti and the Piano to start with...you get to hear what I've known for decades....she is the greatest jazz vocalist alive today....this song on tour will bring the audience to tears and to their feet~!

12. Enjoy The Silence - that's right....Enjoy the Silence....a new twist on a classic....stripped down to bare vocals, this is how you make a song your own and don't blink an eye....the echo vocals are amazing and no one sings backup like Patti on Patti.

Fun to listen to, More in a pop vein. Patti pulls it off but far from my favorite Patti. OK

Lots of smooth songs - after seeing Patti Austin in concert in 2012 I have bought 4 of her albums. This is one of my favorites.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not Patti! July 10, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I had the same experience as another buyer - I've received 2 copies of this CD and neither one of them are a Patti Austin recording. They are both Muzak instrumentals - very nice Muzak, but still... This company has a real problem...

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than usual. October 18, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Every so often Patti pulls out all the stops. Eventhough, this is basically a covers album she does it great! Her past recordings in this venue are very good, and quite entertaining. I still think her version of Monday Monday is better than the original. Or, even her Carry On, the old CSN&Y tune is as good as theirs. The Ability to Swing by Thomas Dolby just sends me,How Long Has This Been Going On...etc, Ah, but that was the past. This new effort has a splendiferous version of Don McLean's "Vincent". And killer versions of You Can't Always Get What You Want, You've Gotta Serve Somebody and Let Em In. You will appreciate this cd when you need to play something while having guests over for dinner. There's basically something here for everyone. Even Gospel. ta-ta for now. Starry starry night....
