Patricia Barber, who is both a fine keyboardist and an atmospheric singer, contributes roughly half of the material to her Premonition debut. Her dark voice and the generally esoteric program takes awhile to get used to (listeners will have to be patient), but after two or three listens, this thought-provoking and rather moody set becomes more accessible…

The dark, smoky voice of Patricia Barber is quite haunting. On Modern Cool, she mostly sings downbeat songs at slow tempos. All but three songs are her own originals, and they deal with such subject matter as an "homage to beauty" that seems to connect painting one's face with prostitution, loneliness, mindless conformity, the "Postmodern Blues," and other such topics…

Patricia Barber is a crack jazz pianist, an innovative composer, a singular vocal stylist, and among the most original lyricists/song-poets to come down the pipe in 40 years. Her use of metaphor and metonymy is woven inextricably into her trademark melodies, which create mental and sonic images that evoke insight and emotion. Smash, Barber's debut for Concord, is comprised of original material performed by an excellent band that includes guitarist John Kregor, bassist Larry Kohut, and drummer Jon Deitemyer.

Chicago pianist and vocalist Patricia Barber is making lots of ears burn. Her torch song touch speaks volumes to jazz vocal fanatics, but she has an adventuresome side that speaks likewise to fans of woollier jazz. Barber's vocal delivery is swaggering and burnished, always angling against oddball time signatures and often dropping weird lyrical science. From e.e. cummings poems, Barber moves into prescient observations on our society: "For company in the 21st century," she sings, "I go to the club, talk through the show / I'm so hip there's nothing about jazz / That I don't know." Trumpeter Dave Douglas and guitarist John McLean add a sharp edge, and the Choral Thunder Vocal Choir give Modern Cool soul-drenched dynamics that push the CD into the realm of instant classics.

The Premonition Years: 1994-2002 collects tracks the jazz pianist/singer/songwriter Patricia Barber recorded for the independent Premonition label. These are the cuts that helped solidify Barber's reputation as an enigmatic, cerebral, and creatively inspired artist with a knack for intimate and reflective cabaret-influenced performances that touched on jazz standards, reinterpretations of contemporary pop tunes, and her own literate and poetic songs. Interestingly, this anthology is separated into three discs of "pop songs," "standards," and "originals," respectively. In that sense, its a perfect introduction to Barber's singular approach to jazz.

Patricia Barber's unique style and unusual voice made her an easy target for critics in the early days of her career. Her piano playing and singing, while inventive, never ventured close enough to the avant-garde to earn her artistic license, and her insistence on writing her own material and adapting songs from the pop world made her difficult to categorize…

Patricia Barber revient avec un projet ambitieux, un album où chacun des titres est inspiré d'un personnage des "Métamorphoses" d'Ovide. Mythologie est un disque passionnant qui regroupe les meilleurs aspects du travail de cette merveilleuse musicienne.

Barber brilliantly has found the means to re-imagine a piece of literature for a jazz context…The expressive range of this music proves thrilling…These songs stand on their own as immensely attractive jazz pieces, apart from their source material.
