Video

  • This was the tune and album that introduced me to Patrice Rushen. However, I first heard her on r&b radio rather than jazz. And one can be very sure that was her intention all along. It was still a very difficult time if you called yourself a 'jazz' artist and smooth jazz was just starting to emerge from such exponents as Grover Washington and his proteges, Pieces of A Dream. So, Ms Rushen found a spot and occupied it. And she did it well all the while still being very musically interesting as well. She's had her share of critics one can imagine. Still she's the one with the awards not the critics. And this album is testimony to that musical greatness.

  • Patrice Rushen's career began young. She released her first album at 20 and was quickly recognised as being an outstanding keyboardist. She was known as a Jazz-Funk artist early on but before long moved towards sophsticated, funky R&B on which she began to showcase some cute and sassy vocals. Larry Levan picked up on her records and you can easily imagine the tracks on Straight from the Heart moving New York's more decearning dancefloors in the 80s.The opening track is of course best known in the Will Smith version for Men In Black but the original is where it's at. There is some superb songwriting on this album and great musicianship. Uplifting, soulful and joyous throughout, records like this laid the foundations for house music, expecially soulful house that followed a decade later. The standout track is 'Number One', in my top 10 tunes of all time. Built around a funked-out guitar refrain, killer keys from Patrice and an unforgetable horn section it is musically complex yet sounds deceptively simple. A classic album from an artist who does not receive the credit she deserves.

  • Many thanks to BET for bringing back the video of "Forget Me Nots".This is simply funk at its best! Now we know why Will Smith coudnt resist sampling this track when he did "men in black".The track "number one" is also really cool.

  • I remembered George Michael sampled 'forget me nots' 'in 'fastlove' .
