About Patrice Rushen

“An unforgettable jam.” —Rolling Stone

A longtime leader on the Los Angeles scene, Patrice Rushen is a legend in the music industry, with major credits as a jazz performer, and film composer, as well as the music direction of major broadcasts (Grammy Awards, Emmy Awards) and tours (Janet Jackson), in addition to leading her own projects.
