R&B hit-maker, singer and jazz-funk keyboard sorceress, PATRICE RUSHEN, jets in to the UK next month for a couple of live appearances.
On May 12th, she appears on the bill of the annual Southport Weekender fronting a ‘must-see’ band of friends that comprises bassist ‘Ready’ Freddie Washington, guitarist Doc Powell, saxophonist Everette Harp and drummer Leon ‘Ndugu’ Chancler.
On May 14th and 15th, Patrice can also be heard at Ronnie Scott’s in London for a couple of concerts billed as “1+ One.” At those dates she will be playing as a duo with drummer, Ngudu Chancler.
Coincidentally, Patrice’s first album for Elektra – 1978’s ‘Patrice‘ featuring the US R&B hits ‘Hang It Up’ and ‘When I Found You’ – has just be reissued by SoulMusic Records.
