Madeleine has the voice that takes only a moment to move you to the (cigar & wine) mood.
when I first heard her in her album (Careless love), I visualized her as a black old lady type of Ella or Sarah...but to my surprise, it was a hottie white gurl with such a magnificent voice..
in her third album (Bare Bones), Madeleine continues her brilliant style of reviving classic vocal jazz through the magical blend of new ideas and old voices.
(Something grand) is an example of country/jazz mix that is rare to find anywhere else...
the groovy (you can't do me) that reminds you of the standard reggae groove, but again...with the Peyroux blend that takes you in the middle of the tune to feel that it is a typical R&B or funk tune with the smooth backing vocals.
what we expect in the next album: more brass voices, blues tunes, cover or two for the greats...
