A sophisticated vocalist whose style is steeped in jazz, Patti Austin made her debut at the Apollo Theater with Dinah Washington at age four and had a contract with RCA Records when she was only five. She was on tour with bandleader Quincy Jones at age nine and then toured with Harry Belafonte. She continued to perform throughout the '70s, '80s and '90s, winning a Grammy for Best Jazz Vocal Album in 2008.
