Patricia Barber – Clique

Well, the hyped and long-awaited new album from Patricia Barber has arrived! Considering the quality of her other recordings and with this one being recorded in DXD at 32-bit/352.8 kHz, there was little doubt the audio quality would be at a high standard. However, this means nothing if the music is not at a high caliber as well. While Patricia typically has distinctive interpretations of standards, the music won’t be for everyone, but she definitely has a legion of fans as well. Of note on her recordings is the talent of other performers, in particular her bassists. This is mentioned as her cover of “The In Crowd” as a duo between Barber and bassist Mulcahy is a particular standout. Check it out on Tidal.

Quinn Sullivan – Wide Awake
He may have been a child guitar prodigy taken under the wings of Buddy Guy and admired by Clapton and Santana, but on his 3rd album at the age of 22, Quinn is solidly finding his own voice. While the songs have pop melodies, they are firmly rooted in rock and blues. With guitar prowess, great vocals and catchy songs, he could carve out a successful career along the lines of John Mayer. He definitely has the talent. Available in 24/96 FLAC from Prostudiomasters or streaming on Tidal.

Allison Russell - Outside child

If you were lucky enough to catch the husband/wife duo “Birds of Chicago” at the Regina Folk Festival in 2015, you may have had the pleasure of hearing Allison Russell with her husband JT Nero. Born and raised on Montreal, music saved Allison as she suffered from a traumatic childhood of abuse.  Since the duo group with her husband, she has also been part of the folk supergroup “Our Native Daughters” along with Rhiannon Giddens. “Outside Child” is her first solo album and is a rather therapeutic effort considering her past and where she has come since then. The album would be classified in the Folk/Americana genre and features the soulful vocals of this talented multi-instrumentalist.  You can find it on Tidal here:  https://tidal.com/browse/album/184088038 

Sachal Vasandani Featuring Romain Collin - Midnight Shelter

Sachal Vasandani Featuring Romain Collin - Midnight Shelter
Vocalist Sachal Vasandani and his friend/pianist Romain Collin team up for this sparse and subdued album that delivers incredibly well. On this album, Sachal has moved away from his more jazz-centric vocals of past albums and here concentrates more on a stripped-down presentation that’s more pop focused featuring covers from artists such as Nick Drake, Bob Dylan and The Beatles. Vocal delivery is straightforward in the vein of someone like Kurt Elling and the piano accompanies with a light touch that is the ideal compliment to these minimal arrangements. Warmth, body and intimacy are the sonic hallmarks of this excellent recording. Available for streaming on TIDAL or in 24/96 FLAC from ProStudioMasters.
