ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This project came out of taking an opportunity to work with Joe Holt on arranging some of my original music. Joe is a fantastic pianist and musician, and I was thrilled when he agreed to work with me. Then I was honored to be offered a show at The Mainstay, a local venue that has featured some fantastic performers over the years. Suddenly, the work with Joe became a project and this album is the result. I was delighted to work with Pres Harding and Ray Anthony , both on the cover songs and original work, and am thrilled to have collaborated on one piece with Grant Aldonas who sent me one beautiful piece, asking me to come up with a lyric. I use words like "delighted" and "thrilled" and "honored" because I truly am. I hope you enjoy the work.

A Little out of Focus

Focus on Beautiful Music
I love this new cd by Barbara Parker. A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of attending a performance and the cd allows me to continue to enjoy her music. The title track "A Little out of Focus" is delightful and will make you smile and brighten your day.

A Little out of Focus

FOCUS on Parker Brilliance!
Millions of cds are released globally each year-all I feel sure with some degree of merit.What I WASN'T prepared for with Barbara Parker's 'A Little out of Focus" was an album which had me pretty much mesmerised from start to finish! Barbara's unique,emotional,warm voice notwithstanding,the songs run the full gamut of emotions,some storytelling,the odd cover done to perfection.But it is Barbara's original material which shines with strong melodic vocal lines,excellent lyrics/poetry and a healthy mixture of rhythms,moods going from ballads to a little gentle rocky/poppy/country - all we DIDN'T get was some heavy classical arias or sonatas!
For thos e with eclectic taste in music this album would certainly satisfy.Barbara's voice has a beautiful tone quality and superb range - she is inviting us on each track to listen to part of her story - so we smile with her,feel the romance with her,ride the crests of each wave of emotion and finish feeling satisfied - but hey!Play it again!Barbara has brilliant backing from Joe Holt,Pres HArding,Ray Anthony with features from Tom McHugh and Diane Jones.This album with it's intensity,fun,moods,brilliant songwriting and performances will be one you will play over and over - Outstanding music,performances,arrangements - not so out of focus after all!

A Little out of Focus...is right in Focus
From '' I'm Not in the Mood'' that will most definitely put you ''in the mood'' all the way down to ''A Little out of Focus'' this album has it all.. For a real homespun sound with Vocals that never quit you are in for a treat with the purchase on Barbara's most recent release.. there are a few timely cover's in the mix ,however, the lions share of this album is new original works from the artist herself. This album was produced with meticulous observation to quality with results second to none.. Loving Cup with the rest of this quality album will have you loving '''A Little out of Focus'' This will take you to a time when ''Music'' was real....a most enjoyable treat indeed
