Patricia Barber Quartet
A stand out for her song writing abilities (noted in the LA Times more than once), Patricia Barber delivers at once comical jazz tunes with an elegance that speaks to her multifaceted abilities to write and perform like a master.
Barber is a class act, demanded for her performanes while still holding workshops, lectures, and holding a faculty position at the University of Illinois, Chicago.
"Cross Diane Krall with Susan Sontag, and you get Patricia Barber, whose throaty, come-hither vocals and coolly incisive piano are displayed to devastating effect," (TIME magazine).
Tickets are availabe at the Portland Center for Performing Arts box office and their website.
