Patti Austin To Perform At The 14th Annual Bermuda Music Festival Oct 29-31, 2009

By on Tuesday, September 15th, 2009 in News

Quincy Jones and Rock Newman, boxing–turned–entertainment promoter, unveiled the growing group of award-winning musicians that will assemble to perform live with Quincy at the 14th Annual Bermuda Music Festival. Patti Austin will perform in a spectacular setting on the tip of the island of Bermuda on the 2nd day, October 30th.

Patti Austin has worked with Quincy since she was 4 years old and a member of Quincy’s extended family.  Proud to be Patti’s godfather, Quincy produced her #1 hit “Baby, Come to Me” – a duet with James Ingram. Patti’s other work with the Quincy “family” includes collaboration with both Quincy and Michael Jackson on “Off The Wall” and “The Wiz”.

The lineup – like Quincy’s own career – mixes a broad variety of talent, range and style.  The elite group of musicians share both musical roots and – in some cases personal ties – with the man who has collaborated with talents as diverse as Frank Sinatra, Will Smith and Ella Fitzgerald.   Other artist to perform at the 2009 Bermuda Music Festival are Erykah Badu, James Ingram, Wyclef Jean, John Legend, Michael McDonald, Kenny Rogers, Naturally Seven.

Patti Austin made a huge impression on my musical growth and taste. She provided a lush countermelody of harmonies against Quincy Jones's productions in the early part of her career and beyond. I have to say the 1st time I was ever moved emotionally by music was a song called "Velas" on Quincy's "The Dude" album and 2nd was Patti's "Any Way You Can". I told myself back then that one day I wanted to thank her in person for her musical contributions which made such an impact on the soundtrack of my life
