“Top ten albums all time by a female jazz vocalist!” — CD Review
Patricia Barber’s outstanding 1994 release Cafe Blue has won more than 15 awards from major international music institutions. Deemed an “underground classic” by jazz bible Downbeat magazine, the album contains sparkling, indelible improvisations derived as much from Barber’s interest in classical music as from jazz. This is where the internationally renowned singer-pianist comes into her own, interpreting songs from outside the traditional jazz repertoire and debuting a handful of original compositions that reveal her innovative, thoroughly distinctive style.
