Patricia Barber: Higher

Read "Higher" reviewed by Tyran Grillo

Patricia Barber is more than the sum of her talents. As a composer, she peels back the craft of song to expose its barest textures, cultivating each like a tree that, while holding its own shape above ground, makes apparent the roots below it. As a singer, she understands not only that we perform our voices ...

The half-Japanese, half-New Zealander's spiritual kinship with Japan runs deep.

The composing is in-the-tradition and buoyant throughout, and harnesses the abilities of an enviable band. Bassist Mike McGuirk exudes plenty of sunshine in opener “Gee Wheez," revealing a carefree undercurrent that infuses the entire session. Drummer Mark Ferber catches his ...
