Quiet intensity

Patricia Barber, a local jazz fixture, has released an album that sounds like a low-key affair, but there's an intensity and darkness to many of her lyrics, often dealing with the pain of loss and failed relationships.  Musically, things are generally spare and spacious, but that just builds the drama and sets up powerful moments like John Kregor's intense guitar solo on the title song (which seemingly comes out of the blue) or the slow buildup of "Scream."  This is a powerful album that rewards close listening.
