The album has been compared to Ray Charles' "Modern Sounds In Country & Western Music" but it is less a combination of genres and more of a demonstration of how a great voice, great songs and great musicianship can transcend genres to create a work that is original, timeless and satisfying in equal measure.
If there are any doubts that Peyroux is an intuitive and versatile performer her dramatic reading of Leonard Cohen's "Bird On A Wire" should dispel those doubts. From the Everly's "Bye Bye Love" to Buddy Holly's "Changing All Those Changes" and Cindy Walker's "You Don't Know Me" this is the sound of a singer bringing new dimensions to some well loved songs.
But it is the final cut from which the stuff of dreams is made. Warren Zevon's masterpiece "Desperadoes Under The Eaves" opens with epic and majestic strings that fade away to reveal a world where jazz, country, lyrics, melody, voice and music blend into a glorious, unforgettable symphony. There can be few songs that convey so well the despair that loss and loneliness bring and Peyroux delivers straight from the heart.
I couldn't possibly pick out a single favourite on this album so I'll choose all 10 tracks. Madeleine Peyroux's voice breathes a new spark of life in to these classic tracks made famous by the great man, Ray Charles, in the 60's and 70's. Also there's a track originally done by The Everly Brothers, 'Bye Bye Love'. All in all, I really enjoy listening to Madeleine Peyroux. Her voice just takes the listener away from it all. Wonderful and magical to hear the songs on this spellbinding album. I could just listen to this album all the time without getting bored.
Beautiful and delicious. This album comes highly recommended by this reviewer and it is very much well worth a listen. You won't be disappointed. I certainly wasn't. Big thumbs up!!
This is a lovely late night or car journey listen, something to relish alone, letting her honeyed voice pour over one's mind and soothe the worries away. Delicious.
her new album 'The Blue Room'. With Larry Klein producing and Vince
Mendoza arranging the string section (both peerless collaborators with
Joni Mitchell) and a slick instrumental ensemble (Larry Goldings, Keys;
Dean Parks, Guitar; David Piltch, Bass and Jay Bellerose, drums) at her
side you know it's just going to sound great even before you hit "Play".
The spirit of Ray Charles informs Ms Peyroux's muse in this collection
of beautifully performed songs and she is a fine interpreter of the
great man's material. A few sidesteps enrich the mix : a tidy exposition
of The Everly Brothers 'Bye Bye Love' and a gloriously downbeat take on
Randy Newman's 'Guilty' perhaps best among them but it is Mr Charles who
sits closest to her heart. Her utterly sublime interpretations of 'Born
To Lose' and 'You Don't Know Me' are alone worth the price of the album.
Blue has rarely sounded better.
