About Patricia Barber

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.

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.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
