At High End Munich in 2019, the world's largest audio show, a special event was held. It was a preview of what Merging Technologies calls "a remarkable album" — singer, pianist, and composer Patricia Barber's latest music project Higher. Barber is a veteran of the Chicago Jazz scene and has received rave reviews of her albums in the audiophile world for many years. The preview at High End Munich provided the invited listeners with a rare opportunity to hear the album in its recorded DXD resolution in Stereo and 5.1 Surround Sound.
This 180-gram 45 RPM LP edition contains the complete Higher song cycles plus three great standards and a special bonus track of "The Opera Song" with noted lylric soprano Katherine Werbiansky.
