When a 20-year-old Patrice Rushen recorded her debut album, Prelusion, in 1974, she was still four years away from becoming a full-time R&B singer. Instrumental jazz was her main focus, and there was every reason to believe that she would become a major figure in the jazz world.

Prelusion/Before The Dawn. A very nice mid-period fusion album with some R&B influences. Great funk grooves and lots of keyboard pyrotechnics. At the same time, it's clear that Patrice Rushen is a serious jazz musician. Not to be missed by fusion fans.
