A singular jazz work, Patricia Barber's groundbreaking Mythologies is the result of the pianist becoming the only singer-songwriter to ever win a Guggenheim Fellowship. Allowed the time to craft a sophisticated album, the ambitious 2006 set is without peer in any musical genre. A cycle based on Greek mythology and Ovid's "Metamorphoses," Mythologies brings each of the 11 characters from Ovid's play to life in song.
"(a) dark sense of humor mingling with a bright musicality." - downbeat
"Barber, for my money the single most interesting female American jazz singer on the contemporary scene, has remained an uncompromisingly brilliant innovator." - jazztimes
