Be bop not doo wop

Jazz is a genre for individualists, so to be considered a maverick in the community requires a rarefied virtue. The Patricia Barber Quartet’s titular namesake lives up to that impressive reputation. As a vocalist, she is instantly recognizable; as a pianist and composer, she is widely hailed as one of the most imaginative on the scene today; and as a poet, her lyrics have a reputation for stirring up vibrant imagery and bold, haunting concepts.

Tuesday 2/5 $15-20, 8pm. Old Cabell Hall, UVA. 249-6191.
