Four years in the making, and the beloved musician’s first studio record since 2008, her Concord Records debut defies expectations and crystallizes her status as a preeminent songwriter. Informed by personal episodes of significant loss and yearning, the album masterfully unites harmony and melody via uncommon delicacy, tonal intimacy, and ethereal surrealism. It will likely stand as 2013’s finest jazz effort, an instant classic. Mastered from the original master tapes, Mobile Fidelity’s hybrid SACD possesses audiophile-quality fidelity and dynamic transparency unmatched by the commercially released CD. Akin to the reissue label’s previous Barber releases, many of which are long out-of-print and command huge sums on the collector’s market, Smash brings the singer and her band into your listening room, converting it into a recreation of the stage at Chicago’s Green Mill, Barber’s home base. Sonic characteristics crucial to Barber’s sophisticated compositions—atmospherics, decay, whisper-soft transients, mood, acoustic dimensions, precise imaging—are rendered with utmost detail, balance, and accuracy. All else that’s required for your trip to the Green Mill is a stereo and glass of chardonnay. And consider what Barber herself has said about the record's producer, Jim Anderson: "Jim brings that uniquely clear sound quality as well as all his expertise to the studio. His equipment and the way he records is so pure. He creates a silence as landscape and an intimacy that listeners understand as such. His mikes pick up so many frequencies he doesn't have to add any." Punctuated by deft instrumental passages and mysterious verses, Smash marks a triumphant return for Barber after she endured a series of melancholic episodes, including the death of her mother and four other people close to her. In addition, a disagreement with business associate cost her untold amount of money. She also broke away from Blue Note after its president stepped down from his position. Barber channels these painful, often-angry experiences and transitional periods into expressionistic poetry on Smash, transferring her emotions to arrangements that mirror the deep, meaningful cycle of human life and death.

<![CDATA[Patricia Barber - Mythologies]]> https://ccd.pl/patricia-barber-mythologies-p193512/ <img src='https://www.ccd.pl/covery/MFSL2318_A.jpg' width='200' align='left' hspace='4' vspace='2'> <strong></strong> <hr>Pioneering 2006 Album Re-imagines Ovid's "Metamorphoses" "A work of deep intelligence and no small beauty." - The Boston Globe A singular jazz work, Patricia Barber’s groundbreaking Mythologies is the result of the pianist becoming the only singer-songwriter to ever win a Guggenheim Fellowship. Allowed the time to craft a sophisticated album, the ambitious 2006 set is without peer in any musical genre. A cycle based on Greek mythology and Ovid’s “Metamorphoses,” Mythologies brings each of the eleven characters from Ovid’s play to life in song. Accompanied by guitarist Michael Alger, bassist Michael Arnapol, and drummer Eric Montzka, and assisted by a few special guest background vocalists--including a children's choir--Barber has turned in one of the first legitimate masterworks of the new century. Lyrically addressing lovestruck emotions, insomnia, desires, risks, and more, Barber habitually turns conventions on their head. She matches her sonnets, double entendres, and fascinating narratives with music that’s at once seductive, sad, beautiful, and powerful. Intended to be listened to from start to finish, Mythologies comes off as a sonic cycle that traces life and death in an engrossingly imaginative fashion that’s on par with the classic Greek influences. Half-speed mastered from the original master tapes, Mobile Fidelity’s numbered limited-edition 180-gram 2-LP set of Mythologies boasts astounding sonics. Every vocal delicacy and breathy aspect of Barber’s singing is fully audible, balanced, and gorgeously textured. Instrumental decay and acoustic details are suspended against a pitch-black background. Vocal jazz records don’t get better than this! Don’t settle for the standard CD version, which is robbed of much of the presence, richness, and atmosphere. ...]]> <![CDATA[Patricia Barber - Smash ]]> https://ccd.pl/patricia-barber-smash-p170555/ <img src='https://www.ccd.pl/covery/UDSACD2136.jpg' width='200' align='left' hspace='4' vspace='2'> <strong></strong> <hr>Pianist’s First New Studio Album in More Than Four Years Masterfully Unites Harmony and Melody Via Uncommon Delicacy, Tonal Intimacy Barber Defies Expectations, Channels Melancholic Experiences Into Expressionistic Poetry and Attractive Arrangements “No One Else Writes or Sounds Like This”—Chicago Tribune Accessible and complicated, alluring and challenging, sensuous and liberating, Patricia Barber’s Smash once and for all confirms the pianist/singer exists in an elevated artistic plane reached by none of her generational peers.
