Madeleine Peyroux Speaks About The Blue Room

Biography

“The only thing that matters is the song,” says singer-songwriter Madeleine Peyroux. That conviction along with a ‘one of a kind’ voice, has carried the Jazz artist from busking on the streets of Paris, all the way to mainstream recognition.
Through intensely distinctive renditions of old classics and modern tunes by the likes of Leonard Cohen and The Beatles, ... Read more in Amazon's Madeleine Peyroux Store

Format:Audio CD
Madeleine's musical training came on the streets of Paris, where she started as a busker, then after a street-corner audition she got a gig singing with the Lost Wandering Blues and Jazz band, performing songs by artists such as Bessie Smith, Billie Holiday and Fats Waller.
Her previous albums Careless Love and Half the Perfect World sold over a million copies, earning critical-acclaim for her Jazz-Blues interpretations of works by artists such as Leonard Cohen and Edith Piath.
When she went "missing" in Britain while promoting her breakthrough album "Careless Love", her record company couldn't wait to tell the media.
How better to differentiate Maddie from the rest of the jazz-lite crew than by painting her as a wayward chanteuse? She hadn't disappeared, of course. She'd simply become bored with the promo-circus and gone back to New York. And who could blame her?
But Madeleine didn't need a vanishing act to raise her above her rivals. Her smoke-and-honey vocals, Billie Holiday phrasing, and breezily bohemian way with classy material had assured her fanbase.
They won't be disappointed by her new release, "Bare Bones", produced by Joni Mitchell's ex, Larry Klein.
She has built a career on interpreting the works of other people.
Her sensitive, exquisite voice, reminiscent of the great jazz singers of our yesterdays has added her signature 'postmodernist coolness' (LA Times) and fresh brushstrokes to the work of artists including Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Hank Williams and Serge Gainsbourg.
"Bare Bones" is her 4th solo album and her third with Rounder Records.

4.0 out of 5 stars Peyroux Cuts to the Marrow With 'Bones' March 15, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Madeleine Peyroux has an exquisite, almost other-worldly gift for intense, profoundly beautiful phrasing, and she is a talented musician as well. But can she also pen the tunes? "Bare Bones" answers affirmatively with its 11 pleasureful song selections.

With 2006's "Half the Perfect World" Peyroux seemed a bit self-conscious and under pressure; some of the cover choices did not allow her honeyed voice room to shine, and her three originals were enjoyable but forgettable - one could sense her pressure to produce a follow-up that would repeat the success of 2004's "Careless Love," a classic if ever there was one. (By the way, the best recording from the "Half the Perfect World" sessions is a tune that did not make the disc - Peyroux's exquisite, achingly beautiful cover of Randy Newman's "I Think It's Going to Rain Today" was only available in select markets and as a bonus track from selected retailers. However, the tune can be purchased on the 2007 compilation album "Give Us Your Poor," available on Amazon.com, and can be purchased a la carte digitally. It is well worth the effort.)

Things feel differently this time around, however - Peyroux has truly found her voice as a songwriter, and the results are wonderful. Partly eschewing the brooding melancholy of her past works, she strikes a different overall key with "Bare Bones" in that she finds optimism and even levity in her psychological exploration of life's tapestry, and she need not resort to simplicities or cliches to convey her rich, nuanced observations.

Format:Audio CD
Madeleine Peyroux's brand new CD entitled "Bare Bones" displays her evolution as an artist. For the first time Madeleine doesn't just sing on an album; she also wrote a lot of the material for this CD. Some will say that a singer who wants to write their own songs takes a mighty big risk, but actually Madeleine succeeds rather well at both singing and songwriting. Sure, Madeleine could have pushed the boundaries a bit more; but she is becoming an even better artist who can now write their own songs. Although Madeleine got help writing these songs from people including Walter Becker and Joe Henry, she did write "I Must Be Saved" independently. She even plays the acoustic guitar on this album! I'm impressed; Madeleine can do just about anything she wants to do. She completely throws herself into each ballad on this album; and you can tell it's true with just one listen. The quality of the sound is excellent and that artwork is very nicely done.

The album starts with Madeleine singing "Instead;" she delivers this with panache and she never sounded better! "Instead" is not just a strong start for the album; it's a highlight of the album as well. That music fits in perfectly with Madeleine's vocals and it never steals the show away from her--great! "Instead" just couldn't have been written any better. "Bare Bones," the title track for this album, has a fantastic musical arrangement; and Madeleine sings this faultlessly. I really like "Bare Bones;" and listen also for "River of Tears." "River of Tears" has a laid-back flavor to it even though those lyrics are not exactly the happiest, to be sure. Madeleine wears her heart on her sleeve when she sings "River of Tears" and it all holds its own very well.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointment
Not up to her earlier work, somewhat repetitive melodies, disappointing lyrics, pleasent but not terrible. Why do I need to write so many words

I like her music and her voice. She has a soft voice and melodic sound. However, as on many recordings today, the music occasionally overwhelms the voice. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Far from an "easy listen," ultimately rewarding
My first impression of Madeleine was that she belonged to the "chanteuse" school of jazz vocalists, without the "beatnik beret" of someone like Rickie Lee Jones or the China doll... Read more
