Patricia Barber - Modern Cool
(180g Vinyl 2LP)
Audiophile Quality 33 1/3 RPM 180g Vinyl 2LP Reissue Remastered from the Original Analog Mixes by Doug Sax and Pressed at Quality Record Pressings!
Patricia Barber's Modern Cool (Premonition Records, 1998) was the recording that made Barber an international jazz star. On the initial tour in support of the album, Barber played a four night stand at The Jazz Standard in New York where she was heard by Bruce Lundvall of Blue Note Records. This led to a string of Barber recordings for both Premonition and Blue Note, worldwide touring and unapologetic critical acclaim from which Barber has never looked back. Audiophiles were well aware of Barber from her 1994 Premonition recording Café Blue. Sonically, Modern Cool followed the Café Blue playbook: same recording studio, engineer, and recording approach. Musically, Barber added trumpeter Dave Douglas to her stellar working band and showcased her original compositions more than on any previous recording. This double 33 1/3 rpm 180g vinyl LP edition is newly remastered by the legendary Doug Sax from the original analog mixes and serves as yet another strong addition to the Barber audiophile oeuvre.
