The Patricia Barber Trio
featuring Patrick Mulcahy and Jon Deitemyer
Higher - ArtistShare

Internationally acclaimed American composer singer/pianist Patricia Barber raises the bar with her 2019 recording on ArtistShare, her first since the critically acclaimed Smash (Concord, 2013). Higher marks Barber's return with another form-shattering collection of original material. Barber continues her touring into Europe in 2020. Happy New Year!

Renowned as a singular songwriter for her harmonic sophistication and incisive lyrics, Barber made several albums for Premonition and Blue Note Records that sold over 100, 000.

Barber, who has also won a Guggenheim fellowship in Composition, once again brings thrilling original material into the jazz orbit. Featured on Higher is an art song cycle, "Angels, Birds, and I...", that can be performed by jazz vocalists and instrumentalists as well as classical singers. In 2015 Barber toured an early version of the cycle in concerts with Renée Fleming. In 2016 she took the cycle to Chicago's Harris Theater to open the prestigious Ear Taxi New Music Festival.

Performing on Higher with her long-time jazz trio (Patrick Mulcahy-bass, Jon Deitemyer-drums) and guests, Barber juxtaposes "Angels, Birds, and I..." with some of her celebrated arrangements from the American Songbook.
