This live recording of Patricia Barber performing at the Green Mill, Chicago, is my favourite amongst her albums that I have. I believe this is also a firm favourite of many audiophiles amongst our readers.
I don't need to describe the music in much detail except to say that in Patricia Barber's music, you'd either love it or hate it. This live recording is surely a "love it" even if you're not a fan of hers, you can't be helped by a really enthusiastic crowd.
The sonics are excellent. If you system is up to scratch, it'll present an intimate atmosphere of a jazz club, with a very realistic 3D sound stage in front of you and the audience surrounding the stage and your self. Couple that in a dimly lighted room, you can really "Be There", no leap of faith required. Now if only our hifi can also reproduce the smell of smoke and beer, that would really be perfect!
