Patricia Barber - Black Magic Woman

I got a Black Magic Woman.
I got a Black Magic Woman.
Yes, I got a Black Magic Woman,
She's got me so blind I can't see;
But she's a Black Magic Woman and
she's trying to make a devil out of me.

Don't turn your back on me, baby.
Don't turn your back on me, baby.
Yes, don't turn your back on me, baby,
Don't mess around with your tricks;
Don't turn your back on me, baby,
'cause you might just wake up my magic sticks.

You got your spell on me, baby.
You got your spell on me, baby.
Yes, you got your spell on me, baby,
Turnin' my heart into stone;
I need you so bad,
Magic Woman I can't leave you alone.

 Patricia Barber (born November 8, 1955, Chicago, Illinois) is an American jazz and blues singer, pianist, songwriter, and bandleader. She was awarded Guggenheim Fellowship in 2003 in Creative Arts - Music Composition field.[1]

Biography

She was born to parents who were both professional musicians; her father is Floyd "Shim" Barber, a former member of Glenn Miller's Band. She was raised in South Sioux City, Nebraska.

Her music is centered on her singing, in a fairly low register and a traditional blues-jazz style, and her piano playing, which is technically accomplished. Her repertoire includes original compositions and standards drawn mostly from classic rock, including "Ode to Billie Joe," "A Taste of Honey," and "Black Magic Woman." She is known for imbuing her songs with intelligence and a wide and unusual vocabulary, which results in complex and witty lyrics. Her 2006 album, Mythologies, is a set of songs based on Ovid's Metamorphoses. In 2007, Premonition Records presented The Premonition Years: 1994-2002, a three-CD box set of Barber recordings divided into originals, standards, and pop.[2] The set includes unreleased tracks and selected songs previously released on Cafe Blue, Modern Cool, Companion, Nightclub and Verse. Those five albums have been reissued by Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab on SACD and limited edition 45 rpm half speed mastered, 180 gram audiophile vinyl.[3] In September 2008, she released "The Cole Porter Mix," a collection of her unique takes on the classic Cole Porter songbook, as well as three original compositions inspired by Porter.

Barber is a lesbian; interviews with her suggest that she does not try to hide this fact, but that she 'tires' of the public interest in her sexuality and dislikes the fact that it contributes to her fame. In November 2008, she was interviewed by Gregg Shapiro of Gay & Lesbian Times, a San Diego magazine.[4]

Said about

    Verse by Patricia Barber (Blue Note Records) (2002), reviewed by Baul West, Allaboutjazz:[5]

    In addition to the assured performing of virtually everyone on board, Verse is a prime showcase for Barber's writing - all work on the album is original - and the lyrics themselves have a dreamy, open quality. The first track, "Lost in This Love," consists solely of questions, indeed allowing us to get lost in Barber's love. Love of fine jazz, that is, in an album of unquestionable passion and power that would be foolish for any jazz fan to pass up.

 Patricia Barber (Chicago, 8 de noviembre de 1956) es una cantante, pianista y compositora estadounidense de jazz. Se trata de una de las voces jazzísticas más aclamadas por la crítica desde finales del siglo XX.

    El estilo de Patricia Barber se aleja de la corriente convencional de aproximación entre jazz y pop (aunque gusta de adaptar al jazz composiciones del pop), y apuesta por el riesgo y la innovación a través de la improvisación y de la elaboración de su propio material. Su característica más definitoria es su voz: oscura, grave, y cercana a la de un alto. Su música se caracteriza por presentar una atmósfera introspectiva, pausada, minimalista, y muy atenta al ritmo y a la melodía.

    Es hija de músicos: un antiguo componente de la orquesta de Glenn Miller, Floyd 'Shim' Barber, y una cantante de blues. Estudia piano clásico y psicología en la Universidad de Iowa. Después de un periodo de aprendizaje en locales de Chicago, en 1984 consigue actuar cinco noches durante la semana en una afamada sala de Chicago, el Gold Star Sardine Bar.

Discografía

    En 1989 grabó un disco autoeditado llamado Split.
    En 1992 graba su primer disco, A Distortion of Love, para Verve.
    En 1994, tras haberse cambiado al club Glenn Mill, edita Café Blue, que se ve recompensado con el premio a la mejor vocalista del año para la revista Donwbeat. El disco presenta todas las características de la obra de Patricia Barber: una atmósfera musical introspetiva, extraña por sus letras, y de tempo lento, pausado; y una combinación de temas sofisticadamente accesibles y temas claramente vanguardistas, con numerosos instrumentos de percusión sutilmente tocados para crear un ambiente minimalista y nada convencional.

    Su consolidación definitiva se produce en 1998 con Modern Cool: entra en el Top Ten de Billboard y obtiene las mejores críticas.

    Companion, de 1999, es su primer disco grabado en directo, en su propia ciudad.

    Night Club (2000).

    Verse (2003).

    Live: A Fortnight In France: segundo disco grabado en directo (2004).

    Mythologies (2006).

    The Cole Porter Mix (2008)
