Album Notes
Pat White, great-grand-daughter of a Cherokee Indian, was born in Tuskegee, Alabama (U.S.A.) to Archie and Ida Pugh. Pat was the youngest of 12 sisters and brothers, of which 6 died at birth and the other 6 survive to adulthood. The entire family played the piano and sang, although Pat and the oldest sister, C.R. excelled in music while others pursued careers in nursing, administration and tailoring. Their maternal grandfather was a Baptist minister who pastored Mt. Olive Baptist Church in Tuskegee, during the time that Booker T. Washington, the founder of the renowned Tuskegee Institute, was a member. Pat began playing piano by ear at 4 years old, and was early influenced by local churches, the Tuskegee Institute Choir directed by Dr. William L. Dawson and the radio music of Nat King Cole, Ella Fitzgerald, Patti Page, wings Over Jordan, Marian Anderson, Paul Robeson, and such traveling musicians as The Gay sisters, The Brandfordettes, The Tuskegee Sextet, The Gay Sisters, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, and classical pianist Phillipa Schyler.

At 12 years old, Pat's first piano teacher was Mrs. Gladys Patterson, whose husband owned a local small market. At 17 years old, in preparation to attend Howard University in Washington, D.C., Pat studied that summer with Mrs. Lexine Weekes of Tuskegee Institute and with an earlier Howard University graduate in Atlanta, Georgia.

In 1958, Pat graduated from Howard University School of Music, with a Bachelors degree in Music Education, planning to become a public school music teacher. Married in 1959, Pat pursued a masters in music education at Indiana university in 1960. Widowed in 1975, 6 months after her arrival in Hollywood, CA, Pat began her worldwide tours under the management of the late Stanford Zucker who first booked her in the lavishly spacious Macdonald Hotel in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, August 1975.

After several careers as a secretary in hospitals and government agencies, as a church musician, music therapist, public school music teacher in Baltimore, Maryland and in Washington, D.C., Pat began performing in piano bars, restaurants, hotels, nightclubs, theatres, concert halls, and moving vessels around the world. She sings mostly in English and also in Japanese, Finnish, Spanish, Indonesian, Yiddish, just to name a few of the foreign languages. Pat has performed in both Western and Eastern hemispheres in 14 countries, and most recently in the Caribbean Islands and the Mexican Riviera. On Pat's numerous returns to Los Angeles, she enjoys time with the family.
