World-Renowned Vocalist Patricia Barber Announces Clique (Impex Records), Brand New Album of Standards out August 6th in Mind-Blowing Hi-Fi
Recorded, Mixed & Mastered in Digital eXtreme Definition 2.0 and 5.1, with Multi GRAMMY-Winner & Longtime Creative Partner Jim Anderson
“The harmonic language of jazz, as well as that of the Great American Songbook, is certainly rich -- look how much has come out of it -- but it’scircumscribed. I started wanting to hearsomething else,” Barber said of recording an all-standards album. Today, Patricia Barber has also debuted Clique’s lead single “This Town,” written by Lee Hazlewood and popularized by Frank Sinatra. Barber pulls the 1967 hit into her own aesthetic domain, creating unique sonic tensions with her “infinitesimally subtle vocal shadings” (ChicagoTribune) that demand listeners rethink the original meaning of the song.
