Keep the Music Playing! Spotlight on Patti Austin

The first thing you notice is the twinkle and sparkle in her green eyes. We first met in 1983 and with her warm embrace and infectious smile, Patti Austin immediately made us feel at ease.

The Grammy Award winning Diva is a 63 year young mega talent. When she soulfully belts out some of our favorites, including Baby Come to Me and How Do We Keep the Music Playing? You simply never want it to stop!

We caught up with our friend Patti this past summer in Switzerland at the Montreux Jazz Festival. She still has that special ingredient of making you feel joy in her presence (she’s also hysterically funny) and she still has those soulful pipes we were introduced to over 30 years ago.

Today Patti Austin is shining in our spotlight with one of our favorite duets performed with James Ingram.
