A singular jazz work, Patricia Barber's groundbreaking Mythologies is the result of the pianist becoming the only singer-songwriter to ever win a Guggenheim Fellowship. Allowed the time to craft a sophisticated album, the ambitious 2006 set is without peer in any musical genre. A cycle based on Greek mythology and Ovid's "Metamorphoses," Mythologies brings each of the 11 characters from Ovid's play to life in song.


1.   The Moon
2.   Morpheus
3.   Pygmalion
4.   Hunger
5.   Icarus (for Nina Simone)
6.   Orpheus/ Sonnet
7.   Persephone
8.   Narcissus
9.   Whiteworld/ Oedipus
10.   Phaethon
11.   The Hours

Reviewer: french vinyl addict
Music recorded at a very low level, noise become inevitable when volume goes high. Quite disturbing compared to the remastered Cafe Blue 2011.
