Patricia Barber Quartet

Known for her noirish, edgy covers of pop and rock standards ("Light My Fire," "The Beat Goes On"), Chicago's Patricia Barber also writes about love and loss in the richly nuanced musical language of jazz. She is a sublime singer, her cool voice mercurial and full of intrigue, and a seductive, sophisticated, vividly unpredictable pianist. She's a true rarity, sharing a quiet intensity, insight, and adventurous spirit only with artists like Cassandra Wilson and Joni Mitchell. Her latest, Smash, is a collection of originals laced with anger and humor. "Redshift" metaphorically links astrophysics and a personal relationship in a breezy bossa nova, Barber knocking it out of the park on multiple levels. (Photo by Jimmy Katz)
