Chicago’s Patricia Barber, who last played TD JazzFest in 2013, is a unique singer-songwriter-pianist who straddles the junction of jazz and blues. Notwithstanding Barber’s technical finesse on piano, it’s her songwriting, intriguing arrangements, and low-register vocals that are at the centre of her music-making. Starting in the ‘90s with Modern Cool and Café Blue, Barber emerged as a confident stylist whose cerebral take on life was idiosyncratic and often sardonic. Known for her cool intellectualism, a hip performance style more cabaret than concert hall, and being a recipient of the prestigious Guggenheim Fellowship Award in the category of Music Composition, Barber is a one-of-a-kind artist with dozens of impressive recordings.
