Patricia Lowe’s second CD Smiling Inside was recently released by Prestige Elite Records. This Afro Jazz album starts with a recital of the poem Sun Song as an intro, written by one of the singer’s favorite authors, Langston Hughes. The Bajan Reporter writes that this poem “fittingly relates to the earthy, warm natured music of the album.” with recordings of “Resurrection Blues (Tutu),” “London Town,” “When Doves Sing,” “Afro Blue,” “Four Women,” “Endangered Species,” “The Silence in Us,” and more beautiful melodies. The instrumental piece “Just Kofi,” is an instrumental piece dedicated to Tony Kofi, who makes a guest appearance on the album.
The album features Patricia Lowe (vocals), Roberto Taufic (electric and acoustic guitar), Stefano Risso (double bass), Gilson Silveira (percussions), Alberto Varaldo (chromatic harmonica), and the exceptional appearance by Tony Kofi on saxophone.
Born in the United Kingdom to Barbadian parents, Lowe moved to Italy in 1993. There she met pianist Paolo Serazzi, with whom she started her singing career. Since then she has studied music with several distinguished singers/teachers from Italy and the UK including the famous jazz singer Norma Winstone. Lowe’s first album was entitled Finally.
