Saskatchewan Jazz Festival: Patricia Barber at The Bassment
June 30, 2016 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
From her early days leading a jazz trio in small Chicago nightclubs, Patricia Barber has drawn extravagant accolades. The praise came at first from local writers, impressed by her unique arrangements and coolly composed piano improvisations. As she added vocals to her repertoire, the praise poured in from national reviewers intoxicated by her recordings. And when (after years of international touring) she began to focus on her own compositions, kudos arrived from new fans, besotted by her lapidary lyrics and her often indelible imagery. Singers all over the world are performing Patricia’s songs, as critics agree Patricia is the songwriter for jazz without peer.
