Notas editoriales de iTunes

Though Madeleine Peyroux is considered a jazz singer, she can sing anything she puts her voice to. She interprets four covers here that show her unusual gift for song. The Beatles’ “Martha My Dear” is welcomed into the sitting room for an art-song reading. Bob Dylan’s “I Threw It All Away” is given a sharp bluesy edge. Robert Johnson’s “Love In Vain” is turned from the Delta blues into an ethereal and formless track that hides a pump organ underneath the spacey effects. Poet W.H. Auden has a poem set to music by guitarist Marc Ribot (“Lay Your Sleeping Head, My Love”) that reflects an atmosphere of easeful rest. The remainder of the album follows suit. There’s an elegance to these songs. “The Kind You Can’t Afford” adds a slinky funk. “The Things I’ve Seen Today” moves on with thick electric guitars holding down the background. “Fickle Dove,” the sudden bossa-nova of “Don’t Pick a Fight With a Poet,” “Meet Me In Rio” and “The Way of All Things” all create their own jazz language that isn’t traditional but a mix of old and new.

standing on the rooftop

indeed different ... must be where she's at ... and that's ok ... while I keep looking for more of the billy / patsy thing ... this is fine stuff ... she's just a wonderful singer, thinker and artist who I highly recommend to everyone ... thanks again Madeleine ... keep on ... being you

hmmmm, disappointing

i hear there is a 15 song version in Europe and why we're getting only 12 songs seems odd? surprised its not Itunes bonus tracks...anyway, grabbed this but its rather plodding and dull unfortunately. hopefully it will grow on me and hopefully we'll see those other three songs...

Vocalist Madeleine Peyroux can best be thought of as a Billie Holiday for the 1990s. Like Holiday, Peyroux was marketed as a jazz singer, when what she seems to do best is sing blues music. Though Peyroux may remind some listeners of Holiday, there are differences; she has her own sense of phrasing and interpretation. Her 1996 Atlantic Records debut, Dreamland, is a brilliant recording, as Peyroux's distinctive voice is not hindered by overly intricate arrangements. Most of the accompaniment on the...
