About the Performance:
The legendary, charismatic jazz duo known as Tuck and Patti has shared the stage with everyone from Count Basie to Miles Davis, and they make a rare Hawai‘i appearance at the Honolulu Museum of Art.
In 1989, the New York Times wrote, “Not since Ella Fitzgerald teamed up with Joe Pass has a guitar-and-vocal duo made pop-jazz music as silky-sounding as Tuck and Patti.” Fourteen years later, the pair has only gotten better. Tuck Andress, playing in a lilting Wes Montgomery style, accompanies Patti Cathcart’s gospel-inflected vocals on jazz and pop standards and their own original songs.
Tuck studied classical guitar at Stanford University while Patti was classically trained in the Bay Area. After meeting at an audition, the pair married three years later, and it has been a match made in music heaven. After building a loyal following in the Bay Area, Tuck & Patti began recording together in 1988. Their album, Love Warriors made the Billboard 200 in 1989, and Dream charted in 1991.
