Press reviews

Secrets of Home Theater and High Fidelity

While [Clique!] still has everything that makes a Patricia Barber album all her own, her singing style, piano playing, phrasing, and arranging, it has an undeniable sense of coolness and a consistent infectious groove that just grabs you and doesn’t let go. Yes, the songs are all recognizable standards, but Patricia Barber handily takes them and makes each her own while still keeping it all sounding appealing and approachable for an admitted jazz neophyte like myself.

WBGO Radio

Patricia Barber breathes new life into her latest single, “This Town” — the 1967 song made popular by Frank Sinatra.

Her tender approach to the lyrics of this Lee Hazelwood hit comes juxtaposed with the fiery edge of her piano playing, in signature Barber fashion. Her new album Clique! due out August 6 finds her reimagining standards by the likes of Thelonious Monk (“Straight, No Chaser”), Stevie Wonder (“All in Love is Fair”) and Rodgers and Hammerstein (“Shall We Dance?”).

Her solid cast of players includes Patrick Mulcahy on bass and Jon Deitemyer on drums, who join her on “This Town.” Elsewhere on Clique, she also features Jim Gailloreto on tenor saxophone and Neal Alger on acoustic guitar.

And as on her 2019 album Higher, a product of the same recording sessions, Barber links up once again with multiple Grammy award-winning producer Jim Anderson — who recorded, mixed, and mastered the sessions in DXD.

1 review for Patricia Barber sings This Town [DSD Single]

    For the moment, I can only talk about the first track of the new Patricia Barber album Clique! – This Town.

    It’s a superb recording which exploits very well the high resolution DXD format. The voice is superb.

    I’m waiting for the availability of the full album.
