Patrice Rushen - Straight From The Heart (Elektra 1982)


Blogger low said...

Straight from the Heart is Patrice Rushen's most successful fusion of R&B and jazz. The album doesn't delve too deeply into either R&B and fusion; instead, it charts a light, mellow and soulful middle ground. And the approach was successful: Three of the songs -- "Forget Me Nots," "Breakout!," "I Was Tired of Being Alone (Glad I Got Cha)" -- were R&B hits, while "Number One" was nominated for a Grammy. Rhino's 1996 reissue of Straight from the Heart includes single edits and 12-inch remixes of the album's singles.
