This was a time when Barber did her first real touring and led to her "discovery" on a worldwide stage. These years defined Barber's career in many ways gaining her the exposure and critical acclaim that solidified her place as one of the most in demand and exciting female jazz vocalists working in jazz. It was also a time when the buzz around Barber led Blue Note Records to enter into a joint imprint relationship with Premonition for the licensing rights to her releases, the first such agreement in the storied history of Blue Note Records. This expansive boxed set -- her first retrospective -- fully captures Barber's unique melange of modern pop, revered standards and inventive originals.
