Patricia Barber revient avec un projet ambitieux, un album où chacun des titres est inspiré d'un personnage des "Métamorphoses" d'Ovide. Mythologie est un disque passionnant qui regroupe les meilleurs aspects du travail de cette merveilleuse musicienne.

Barber brilliantly has found the means to re-imagine a piece of literature for a jazz context…The expressive range of this music proves thrilling…These songs stand on their own as immensely attractive jazz pieces, apart from their source material.

All words & music by Patricia Barber
Produced by Patricia Barber

In 2003, acclaimed singer-pianist Patricia Barber became one of the few jazz musicians ever to be awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship, and she took the opportunity to create one of the most ambitious and affecting works of her career. Embarking on a bold, exciting musical adventure, Barber brings her compositional sophistication to new heights with Mythologies, a song cycle based on Greek mythology where each of the 11 mythological characters in Ovid’s Metamorphoses is fleshed out in music.
