First Listen: Patti Austin sings a song for our times

(May 16, 2020) She is certainly a music legend, first as a jazz singer in the 70s, then as part of the talented stable of performers who worked with Quincy Jones in the 80s, and as a performer who has continuously issued top tier, thoughtful music over the past several decades. Patti Austin is just that kind of artist.

Over the past few years, Patti has released a series of uplifting songs designed to address issues of the day. And this week she released one that hits a button now with what the world is facing. "We're All In This Together" has been a concert staple for Austin for several years, but she worked with her friends over a few weeks recently to put together a studio version.

Both she and the song sound great. And the message is right on time. Check out "We're All In This Together" below, and welcome Patti Austin back to SoulTracks.
