Issued on the Windham Hill label in 1988, TEARS OF JOY marks the studio debut of guitarist Tuck Andress and vocalist Patti Cathcart, widely known as simply Tuck & Patti. On this appealing first outing, the husband-and-wife jazz/pop act's spare, soulful sound--consisting solely of Tuck's agile six-string work and Patti's deep, expressive singing--immediately draws the listener in, as evinced on warm, welcoming original tunes such as the celebratory title track and the swooning "Love Is the Key." Equally impressive, though, are the couple's many covers, including a delicate take on the Rodgers & Hart classic "My Romance" and a gentle reading of Cyndi Lauper's "Time After Time." For newcomers seeking to explore Tuck & Patti's catalogue, this is the best place to start.
