Performance:   Sonics:
It's a very intensive expression of some standard Nightclub-Songs. Every standard song seems to be a Patricia Barber special. A clear, cool voice with a brilliant piano playing and a slow motion music. But it's not boring because there is enough action in the music. I love the high quality of the recordings on my stereo system.

Performance:   Sonics:
music on this disc is quite not that simple but not "crazy" like in Verse and will suite most of the people.

soundwise all her MFSL discs are perfect and great fun listening to.

Performance:   Sonics:
One of the priciest SACDs on the market, "Nightclub" was given the Mobile Fidelity high resolution treatment. Does this mean it is sonically superior to all other SACDs? Not really, although it ranks up there with Telarc for sonic purity. Regarding the performance, this is Patricia Barber at her old-school best, before she adopted the habit of performing strictly her own original material (starting with her most recent album, "Verse", which is not yet available on SACD.) If you preferred the Patricia who gave her own interpretation and attitude to the songs of others, and you enjoy a laid-back, less in-your-face Barber than is heard (and felt!) on discs like Modern Cool, this might be the SACD for you. The title evokes the character of the album, which very much feels like a performance given long after the paying public had filtered out of the club. All in all, a very good effort from engineers, the musicians, and, of course, Patricia Barber herself.
