“Not since Ella Fitzgerald met Joe Pass on stage has there been so felicitious a mating as Tuck & Patti.”
— LEONARD FEATHER, ENCYCLOPEDIA OF JAZZ
For 40 years this unique, genre-crossing vocal/guitar jazz duo has cast its passionate musical spell worldwide, capturing the hearts of lovers, the respect of jazz buffs and the jaw-dropping awe of guitarists and singers.
To understand Tuck & Patti, start with the wellspring of love within them, then their music begins to make perfect sense. Married 37 years, Tuck Andress and Patti Cathcart continue to stoke the fires, not only of their own love, but also of their love of life and their passion for making music together. They have a long-standing tradition: minimalist arrangements featuring Tuck's extraordinary virtuosity and Patti's rich mezzo soprano.
Patti exudes the soft, centered yet powerful graciousness of a gospel singer. Seeing the virtuosity and complexity of Tuck's guitar work, most are surprised to learn that Patti is the actual writer, arranger and producer. Tuck matter-of-factly states: "Patti writes and arranges; I am just the orchestra."
Over a career of jazz, R&B, and crossover recordings, husband-and-wife duo Tuck & Patti have produced a remarkable amount of music, especially considering that they rely on the textures of only guitar and voice. Vocalist Patti Cathcart and guitarist Tuck Andress have been a steady performing duo for three decades. Oklahoma born guitarist Tuck Andress met singer Patti Cathcart, a native of San Francisco, at an audition in Las Vegas in 1980. Prior to this, Tuck had been a session performer with The Gap Band.
Tuck and Patti began performing together in California in 1981 and married in 1983. After signing with Windham Hill in 1987, they released several albums for the label before signing with Epic Records for one album in 1995. After several more on Windham Hill, their releases after 2001 have been on 33rd Street Records.
