As with many performer artists, Patricia Barber has made each album unique from the others before it. I appreciate this approach, since it can encourage freshness and inspiration. I am only expressing my own taste and certainly not the talent/performance of the artist. And the recording as well is what you expect from Ms. Barber, a keeper
Singer/pianist Patricia Barber never fails to amaze with her original material and her very unique takes on old standards. She is that rarest of jazz musicians-highly thoughtful, at times even cerebral, but always swinging-the kind of jazz musician Gerry Mulligan used to call a "wailing wi. A Distortion.
Biography by Stacia Proefrock. Barber performes in a cooly understated vocal style influenced as much by film noir as by Carmen McRae and Peggy Lee. Read Full Biography. A Distortion of Love.
A Distortion of Love from 1992 showcases Patricia Barber the consummate jazz pianist as well as the chanteuse with the husky voice which has become her trademark of late. There are some very interesting purely instrumental tracks on this album, especially the hard driving McCoy Tyner-ish "Subway Station No. 5," the impressionistic "Parts Parallels," and "Yet Another in a Long Series of Yellow Car" which has a Joe Zawinul/Weather Report feel to it. Barber has a way with ballads that is haunting. You Stepped Out of a Dream" receives a magnificent interpretation by Barber and her combo and is the highlight of the album. Wolfgang Muthspiel's guitar solo nicely complements Barber's highly nuanced vocal. If you like jazz that provides food for thought as well as swings, Patricia Barber's A Distortion of Love is the album for you.
