Patricia Barber Trio
Patricia Barber, piano & vocals | Patrick Mulcahy, bass | Jon Deitemyer, drums
“Conspicuously literate and restlessly inventive.” —The New Yorker
The resident jazz pianist and vocalist from Chicago's legendary Green Mill brings her trio to the Bing Studio. Possessed of a supple, hauntingly evocative voice and an expressive, idiosyncratic piano style, Barber draws the listener into her unique musical world. Add to that a keen ear for melody and a poet's way with wordplay, and rarely have so many musical gifts found expression in a single soul.
