  • Patrice Rushen - Dont Blame Me

    4:40

    The official video for 'Don't Blame Me' from Patrice Rushen's classic 1980 album 'Posh'. The original song came from jazz pianist Clarence Bell:

    Clarence was living in San Diego at the time, a great pianist and singer, remembers Patrice. He told me that he had an idea for a song and sent me the basis of that track which I then developed. The video by Century Video was one of three shot in a single day to accompany singles from the album - the others were 'Never Gonna Give You Up' and 'Look Up!'.

    From the 1974 & 1975 Prelusion And Before The Dawn Albums

    Rushen was born in Los Angeles, California on September 30, 1954, the eldest of two daughters born to her father and the former Ruth Harris. She demonstrated her musical potential at a young age; she was regarded as a child prodigy. In her teens, she won the prestigious 1972 Monterey Jazz Festival. She earned her degree in music from the University of Southern California. As a mature woman, she became a jazz master and top musical director.

    Due to her musical talents, Rushen has made many ground-breaking achievements. She became the first woman to serve as head composer/musical director for the Grammy Awards and the Emmy Awards, the first woman to serve as musical director for the NAACP Image Awards broadcast, an honor she held for twelve consecutive years. Rushen has been the only woman to be a musical director/composer for the People's Choice Awards, HBO's Comic Relief and the only woman musical director/conductor/arranger for a late-night television talk show, The Midnight Hour which aired on CBS.

    In addition, Rushen was named musical director/composer for Newsweek's first American Achievement Awards, broadcast on CBS from the Kennedy Center and she served as the musical director for Janet Jackson's World Tour, janet.

    In 2008, Rushen accepted a professorship at the prestigious Berklee College of Music, in Boston. The course is Patrice Rushen: The Value of Music Education.

    She also continues to play keyboard and has played in the tour bands of Lee Ritenour and Wayne Shorter in recent years.
    [edit] Solo career

    Rushen has also achieved great success as a singer. A classically trained pianist, Rushen has spent great deal of time channeling her skills towards making great music. Winning a competition at the 1972 Monterey Jazz Festival put Patrice into the spotlight. The attention garnered from this earned her a contract with Prestige Records in 1973.

    After recording three albums and becoming an in-demand session player, including with artists such as Jean-Luc Ponty, Rushen signed with Elektra Records in 1978. Forging an engaging jazz/R&B/funk fusion, this fresh mixture of styles gave her great success with a string of Top Ten R&B hits, including Haven't You Heard, Forget Me Nots, Feels So Real, Watch Out, You Remind Me, and Never Gonna Give You Up from her first five albums (Patrice, Pizzazz, Posh, Straight From the Heart, and Now). Rushen also performed her single I Need Your Love on the hit show Soul Train in 1981. She also penned the opening theme for The Steve Harvey Show. Her mentor and friend is Quincy Jones. Rushen also plays multiple instruments including flute, piano, percussion, and clarinet.
    ASCAP Songwriter's Award, 1988; USC Black Student Assembly, Legacy of Excellence Award, 1992; Crystal Award, American Women in Film, 1994; AS CAP Award, Most Performed Song in Motion Pictures for 1997 for Men in Black, 1998.

    Due to her musical talents, Rushen has made many ground-breaking achievements. She became the first woman to serve as head composer/musical director for the Grammy Awards and the Emmy Awards, the first woman to serve as musical director for the NAACP Image Awards broadcast, an honor she held for twelve consecutive years. Rushen has been the only woman to be a musical director/composer for the People's Choice Awards, HBO's Comic Relief and the only woman musical director/conductor/arranger for a late-night television talk show, The Midnight Hour which aired on CBS.

    In addition, Rushen was named musical director/composer for Newsweek's first American Achievement Awards, broadcast on CBS from the Kennedy Center and she served as the musical director for Janet Jackson's World Tour, janet.

    In 2008, Rushen accepted a professorship at the prestigious Berklee College of Music, in Boston. The course is Patrice Rushen: The Value of Music Education.

    She also continues to play keyboard and has played in the tour bands of Lee Ritenour and Wayne Shorter in recent years.
    [edit] Solo career

    Rushen has also achieved great success as a singer. A classically trained pianist, Rushen has spent great deal of time channeling her skills towards making great music. Winning a competition at the 1972 Monterey Jazz Festival put Patrice into the spotlight. The attention garnered from this earned her a contract with Prestige Records in 1973.

    After recording three albums and becoming an in-demand session player, including with artists such as Jean-Luc Ponty, Rushen signed with Elektra Records in 1978. Forging an engaging jazz/R&B/funk fusion, this fresh mixture of styles gave her great success with a string of Top Ten R&B hits, including Haven't You Heard, Forget Me Nots, Feels So Real, Watch Out, You Remind Me, and Never Gonna Give You Up from her first five albums (Patrice, Pizzazz, Posh, Straight From the Heart, and Now). Rushen also performed her single I Need Your Love on the hit show Soul Train in 1981. She also penned the opening theme for The Steve Harvey Show. Her mentor and friend is Quincy Jones. Rushen also plays multiple instruments including flute, piano, percussion, and clarinet.

  • Patrice Rushen ~ The Dream Smooth Soul | Quiet Storm

    5:02

    Patrice Rushen entered the 1980s on a high note with Posh, her third album for Elektra and sixth album overall. By that time, it seemed unlikely that Rushen would become a full-time jazz instrumentalist again -- she was enjoying too much success as an R&B/pop singer. And sure enough, it wasn't until 1997's Signature on Discovery that she recorded another instrumental album under her own name. When Posh came out in 1980, jazz's loss appeared to be R&B's gain. If you were a jazz lover, it was frustrating to see Rushen -- a talented improviser with a healthy appreciation of Herbie Hancock -- neglecting jazz. But if you loved sleek, sophisticated R&B/pop, you couldn't help but savor Posh and get into such offerings as the exuberant, Emotions-influenced Look Up!, the vulnerable, slightly Stevie Wonder-ish I Need Your Love, and the infectious The Funk Won't Let You Down. Meanwhile, Time Will Tell has a bit of a rock edge and may very well be the most rock-influenced tune Rushen has ever recorded. Posh is enthusiastically recommended to anyone with a taste for late 1970s and early 1980s R&B.

  • Patrice Rushen - Forget Me Nots

    4:35

    Forget Me Nots es una canción co-escrita e interpretada por Patrice Rushen. La canción aparece en el séptimo álbum de Rushen, Straight from the Heart (1982). Haciendo un cambio radical en su música, Rushen continuaría aprovechando el estilo particular de este disco hasta su siguiente álbum Now (1984). Originalmente considerada por los ejecutivos de la discográfica como un fracaso, la canción se convirtió en un éxito en el Top 40 de pop (#23), el Top 5 de R&B (#4), y el Top 5 de baile (#2) en las listas de Billboard y es el éxito por el que es más conocida.

    El éxito del single culminó en que Rushen consiguió su primera nominación a la Mejor Interpretación Vocal Femenina de R&B en los premios Grammy de 1983. Rushen tenía varias canciones en las listas de R&B y Dance, pero Forget Me Nots fue su único éxito pop en el Top 40 de los Estados Unidos y se ubicó en el puesto 85 en las 100 maravillas más grandes de los 80 de VH1 en 2009.

    La línea de bajo es particularmente reconocible, y fue interpretada en el disco por el bajista de sesión Freddie Washington.
