Monday Night: Live at the Green Mill II
Exactly what jazz fans of all ages have been waiting for !
Patricia Barber (www.patriciabarber.com) has just released yet another stunning album, "Monday Night: Live at the Green Mill, Volume 2."
From the first heart-humming tones of "Triste," to the last, lingering note of "Summertime," this 9-track album (currently available in MP3 and FLAC format) holds the listener suspended in time, awash in a sea of emotion.
"Like JT," a powerful, yet artful piece of piano work; "Blue Bossa," a waterfall of vocalizations blended with delicate melody; "Smile," a rendition that makes you sure that its being played especially for you; along with some old favorites (made new again) is the penultimate for audiophiles worldwide.
I would be remiss however if I didn't acknowledge my personal favorite "On the Road Again." Don't expect Willie Nelson! This piece d'resistance in a mesmerizing piece of dark storytelling at it's finest.
This album of one of the world's foremost jazz artists is not to be missed.
