Patricia Barber – Clique

Patricia Barber - Clique

Audiophile 180g LP

Recorded & Mixed by Jim Anderson in DXD Ultra-High Resolution

Mastered by Bob Ludwig & Lacquers Cut by Scott Hull at Masterdisk

Pressed at RTI

Similar in concept to her earlier classic NIGHTCLUB, CLIQUE gives Patricia and her long-time band (Jon Deitemyer, drums; Patrick Mulcahy, bass; Neal Alger, guitar; Jim Gailloreto, tenor sax) a stellar showcase for their telepathic musical communication and consummate jazz chops.

Barber said of recording an all-standards album:

“The harmonic language of jazz, as well as that of the Great American Songbook, is certainly rich – look how much has come out of it – but it’s circumscribed. I started wanting to hear something else.”

These are relaxed, communal sessions.

Her core trio ride up and down, in and out of Barber’s complex, sensitive playing and singing.

Their support allows her to shine brightly while digging out striking moments for their own unique contributions.

The chemistry is palpable, all encompassing. This group’s long-developed synergy – painstakingly curated by these musicians for years – provides both a metaphor and the perfect title for her new album.

Impex Records, Patricia Barber, and Jim Anderson invite you to experience the music, revel in the mastery, and join the Clique!

What They Do

You live for this. The anticipation of pulling open the heavy-plastic outer sleeve. The sensation of removing the disc from its heavy-board, tip-on jacket. The heft of the 180-gram vinyl disc sliding into your hand. The satisfaction of the perfectly flat LP becoming one with the platter. The astonishment at the record’s silence surface. And then, that sound – the brilliant, vivid fidelity – and the euphoric emotion of being there at the creation: inside hallowed recording spaces such as Columbia’s 30th Street Studio, Capitol Studio A in Hollywood, or Abbey Road in London. From the moment the stylus hits the groove, you’re enveloped by amazing performances captured in extraordinary, life-like sound. Music with unprecedented transparency, immediacy and richness of tone. Pristine sound that comes as close to the original analog master tape as is humanly possible. Deep feelings abound as you experience the impeccable craftsmanship of an IMPEX RECORDS audio disc. This is the reward you’ve earned for a deep-seated love of music, your commitment to superior sound and the countless hours and prodigious capital you’ve invested in building a playback system that can transport you to your musical Nirvana.
