Patrice Rushen

From her 1982 long player Straight From The Heart, Patrice Rushen’s ‘Forget Me Nots’ is probably more familiar now for the vocals it lent to George Michael’s 1996 single Fastlove (and Will Smith’s ‘Men In Black’ a year later). However, I feature it for the funky rhythm and the perfectly abbreviated hand claps. “Ready” Freddie Washington was session player on the recording that delivered the classic bass line.
