Patricia Barber: 'Verse' Music critic Jim Fusilli reviews the latest CD by jazz singer and songwriter Patricia Barber. The recording, called Verse, is a departure from her previous work. She wrote all of the tunes on this record. Her piano performance is less dominant on this album, but the recording is sustained by the band of musicians, including trumpeter Dave Douglas and drummer Joey Baron.
