I’ve been a fan of Patricia’s and pegged her for stardom since her first CD’s in the 1990’s. Possessed of a supple, hauntingly evocative voice and an expressive, idiosyncratic piano style, Patricia inexorably draws the listener into her unique musical world. Add to that a keen ear for melody and a poet’s way with wordplay and metaphor, and rarely have so many musical gifts found expression in a single soul. Whether she’s exploring every nuance of meaning in a torch song or literately critiquing today’s social scene in one of her original compositions, few artists have the storytelling ability of Patricia, Since the release of her critically acclaimed 2013 Concord Jazz CD of all new original songs, SMASH, Patricia’s chosen to go the DIY route, so visit her website to buy her newest CDs, all recorded live at her legendary Monday night gig at the Green Mill in Chicago … and BOOK HER NOW to TREAT YOUR AUDIENCE to an evening with one of the most significant artists working in Jazz today.
