5.0 out of 5 stars Smoky jazz with a Latin flavour
Once I got used to the idea that this wasn't going to be exactly like her last two albums, I have so enjoyed these new songs sung in English, French and Portugese. Melody Gardot brings a flavour of Morocco, Buenos Aires and Brazilian beaches to our rain-sodden (so far this summer) island, and Heitor Pereira joins her on 'Amalia' and 'Se Voce Me Ama.' My only quibble is...

2.0 out of 5 stars Don't buy the special CD+DVD version!!
There are some lovely songs on the Absence but they are less meaty, less visceral than those on her first two albums. But the thing that REALLY annoyed me was the DVD. Only one of the tracks is an actual video recording, and that's the "making of La Vie en Rose"! The other tracks show only a title on the screen! So we don't even get to see her in performance. This is...

Sublime Bossa Nova rythms with great changes of pace and mood! Just add sun and chilled white wine and you have it all.

Goodness I love this womans voice, she has an incredible tone and the songs are so good! Very mellow and a great album to listen to to chill out to, have on in the car or when you have friends for dinner.
Check out her youtube videos at the Avo Sessions, unbelievably good!

Heard her (again) on Simon Mayo's "Drive Time" program on BBC Radio 2 - as an intro to Jamie Cullum's 'jazz' show - and remembered why I liked her music so much! Superb delivery, strong songs, good musicianship!

I was a bit naughty as I had heard Melody Gardot on Jools and thought one of my friends who enjoys Corrine Bailey Rae would like it . I was lucky enough to get the free MP download with the CD so we both got a copy of the album. I think I like it more than my friend does actually but, hey ho!

Easy listening and Melodys beautiful voice as usual. Not as good as her previous but still loved it, only complaint is the weird ending as other reviewers have mentioned.

The perfect record to listen in the sun. Her voice is melodic, easy and it doesn't seem like she is making an effort. Effortless...

I've got Melody's other two albums and enjoyed them a lot so I thought I'd buy this one despite many of the reviews saying she'd changed her style. I see what they mean but it's still definitely Melody and not a huge departure from her other albums. I think this is a another great album.
