Vocalist Patti Cathcart and guitarist Tuck Andress have been a steady performing duo for so long now, going on three decades, that it's somewhat surprising that I Remember You-their new T&P Records recording, licensed to Universal Music-zeroes in on the Great American Songbook. Surely they've already recorded their take on these enduring standards. But no, it just seems so, seems as if everything they've written and recorded is already a standard. In their 11 previous releases, only a handful of tunes would fall under the typical, pre-rock era, standards banner. Read more here.
