Album Description

Internationally acclaimed American composer singer/pianist Patricia Barber is back with a new recording on ArtistShare, her first since the critically celebrated "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 won a Guggenheim fellowship in Com- position, 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.
Performing here with her long-time jazz trio and guests, Barber juxtaposes "Angels, Birds, and I..." with some of her celebrated arrangements from the American songbook. https://www.artistshare.com/Projects/Experience/367/507/1/Higher?v=2
