Patti Austin Live at the Smooth Cruise on Hornblower Infinity, NY

By on Monday, May 19th, 2014 in News

Patti Austin will be performing at the Smooth Cruise on Hornblower Infinity in New York (JUNE 26) . Patti will also be accompanied by the great  acclaimed soprano saxophonist Marion Meadows!

 

About Marion Meadows:

Marion began playing clarinet & studying classical music at age 8 then gravitated to the soprano sax in high school. He attended Berklee College of Music, majoring in arranging and composition and later attended SUNY Purchase School for the Arts. Shortly after he finished school, drummer Norman Connors recorded his song “Invitation” and asked Marion to join his band. Meadows first hit the airwaves in 1991 with “For Lovers Only,” but his career really began one day in the late ‘80s at NYC’s Grand Central Station. He’d been a sideman with Connors for 3 years, with only vague notions of eventually going solo. He caught the attention of fellow commuter TV composer Jay Chattaway, who was so impressed that he hooked Meadows up with legendary keyboardist Bob James. James signed Meadows to his label, and though Meadows’ first recording went unreleased, the experience put him on the road to his eventual success.
