“Throaty, come-hither vocals and cooly incisive piano. Barber’s hushed, sensuous version of ‘Bye Bye Blackbird,’ hasn’t been bettered since Miles Davis last took the old standby out for a spin.” — Time
“Nightclub is an extraordinary recording by an extraordinary artist.” — Stereophile
“A singer who takes romance seriously.” — The New York Times
Nightclub was recorded at Chicago Recording Company in mid-2000 by recording engineer Jim Anderson. Done on the Sony 3348, a 32-track (16/48) digital tape recorder, and mixed down to 2-track, half-inch analog tape with Dolby SR, this was Barber’s first album consisting entirely of standards. Anderson utilized mostly tube microphones (Brauner and Neumann) and John Hardy M-1 preamps, whose signal was patched directly to the tape bypassing the console. Nightclub also prominently features the CRC stairwell as a natural reverb chamber. The album was mastered by David Glasser of Airshow Mastering from the original analog mixes.
