"I first got into Patrice Rushin's music opon returning from Saigon in 1975! Being an avid Herbie Handcock fan, I had herd that she came highly recommended by him. I was facinated by the tune "Before the dawn" as were my Nam buddies!The biggest thrill came when we accually met her in Hawaii in early 76. She was so cool, and I tried my best to get her out on a date being that we were the same age. (I think she might have went, had my friend not been such a "Block", LOL! We continued to be fans of her music well into the 90s, but still there was desire to see her return to "straight ahead" jazz! I can't recommend "Before the Dawn" enough! Once out of print, but now through the magic of compact disk, bigger and better than ever!"

"I owned both of these albums on vinyl but I'm sure glad I repurchased them on CD. I've always loved Patrice's music and I forgot how good her early music sounded. I especially love Jubilation and and Before the Dawn. It was also great to hear some vintage 1970's Joe Henderson and Hubert Laws solos. A great supporting cast.....I highly recommend this CD. 200 Stars!!"

"I have been after the album Prelusion for years and managed to buy the re-issue along with Before the Dawn last year. The standout track has to be H'Awright Now (imagine Herbie Hancock Rhodes solo's 1973-1977), although this isn't really indicative of the rest of the album, which is more in the style of Herbie (again) Speak like a Child era... modal jazz.I don't really care much for the tracks on Before the Dawn as they sound very dated, but Celebration is a great Chick Corea'esque latin track with great flute solos from Hubert Laws."
