Compared to Melody Gardot's fine live performances, were you disappointed by her 1st album - a potentially great voice accompanying derivative join-the-dots jazz/blues; all very gratifying & competent but it never quite hit the spot?

Be prepared to be very pleasantly surprised by this 2nd album, which, IMHO, confirms that a great talent has truly arrived.

Her vocal-style is still 'cool jazz diva', but her voice now has greater authority, charm & emotion - but never sounds contrived - with diction & phrasing that compares with the very best.

There's also some great playing (includes MG on guitar & piano) & very skillful arranging, which effortlessly & elegantly adds drama & accent to MG's vocals. Don't forget, she also writes her own material - Somewhere Over The Rainbow, aside. (Nicely recorded/mixed etc, too.)

Initially tried to play this CD as background music while working at my computer. Hopeless! Repeatedly had to stop work to listen to the music.

Exquisite, & also rather cool. Love it!

OK, let's get this straight. Right here, right now. No messing.

This is one of the best albums you will be likely to hear this year.
(.....or next year, or in the coming decade, come to that).

'My One and Only Thrill' is the real deal.

Universal/Verve have thrown a whole lot of moolah at this production and
Ms Gardot hasn't wasted a cent. Gold begets gold here in every way.

As if this brave young woman's voice were not enough, Mr Klein's
loving and masterful production, Mr Prendergast's exquisite musical
direction and Mr Mendoza's phenomenal string arrangements raise
the twelve songs in this collection to heights rarely achievable in any
composer/performer's career.

The voice. Oh my, my, what a voice we have on show here!

Warm, dark, expressive, playful. An utterly gorgeous instrument.

The writing is steadfastly and consistently inspired. Many of these songs
could have been written at any time during the past half-century but
never for a moment are they anachronistic or derivative.
They burst into our world fresh and fully formed, crammed with subtle
and elusive musical ideas.

The gentle gospel soul of 'Who Will Comfort Me' and the sublime slow
blues of 'Your Heart Is As Black As Night' display a completely assured
grasp of both genres.

'Our Love Is Easy' is a blissful threnody, brimful of whistful passion.

'My One and Only Thrill' is a fragile masterwork whose heartrending melody
and haunting orchestration could not fail to bring hope and affirmation
to anyone who has ever had even the smallest experience of true love.

Melody's music is something special - her voice, her style, her wonderful melodies and lyrics, and the understated genius of her songs combine to make music that you can happily listen to forever.

Her previous album was excellent, but this one is outstanding, every track a gem. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

I heard Melody Gardot first on Jazz Fm and was drawn by her perfect phrasing. How anyone can compare her to Norah is beyond me - Melody surpasses most of her peers with her own songs, beautiful arrangements and amazing mellow voice.
This CD is perfect for chilled evenings either with friends or someone special. Her voice is unique, her words are so true. Having heard her live this album shows a insight to the warmth, emotion and passion she brings to each song. When you listen to some of the songs like "One and Only thrill", and "Deep within the corners of my mind" I challenge you not to feel some emotion, a tug on your heart. The bonus CD is good for "Love me like a river does" which is on worrisome heart her earlier album. I believe that this CD is years to come will be known as a classic. If you do not have this album you are truly missing out.

What can I say? After the justified success of the 'Worrisome Heart' album Melody Gardot has scaled the heights with, what will be, the best album of 2009 and might even be among the best of the decade. The sparse instrumentation, augmented with sumptuous string arrangements, gives much of the album a haunting beauty that stays with you long after the album ends. The truly gorgeous title track is, for me, the stand out on the album, but only because it deserves an unavailable sixth star amongst the bevy of five star tracks gathered on this CD. Buy it now as you are going to be missing an all time classic from your music collection without it.

I first heard Melody on the BBCs "Later With Joools..." and have been a huge fan since. She reminded me of a UK jazz threesome from the 1980s called Carmel, except Melody has a bigger band behind her at times! Her vocals are amazing, haunting, and passionate all at once, and the lyrical content of some of her work is truly reflective and heart felt. When i read of her journey to get to where she is now and from where she started, reminded me of Mexicos' Frieda Kahlo, that something so potentually tragic, could become so powerfully fulfilling. The 2 cd version has "live" content although the audience seems to have been added on at a later date, but don't let that put you off from a superb vocal and musical arrangement. Definately recommended.
