“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 cabaret. Possessed of a supple, hauntingly evocative voice and an expressive, idiosyncratic piano style, Barber is known to draw the listener into her unique musical world.
Add to that a keen ear for melody and a poet's way with wordplay—rarely have so many musical gifts found expression in a single soul.
