MADELEINE PEYROUX picture
Madeleine Peyroux is a jazz singer who was born in 1974 in Athens, Georgia, United States, and raised in New York City and Paris, France. She is noted for her vocal style, which is highly reminiscent of Billie Holiday. Madeleine also has qualities similar to Ella Fitzgerald. Though Peyroux may remind some listeners of Holiday, there are differences, and she has her own sense of phrasing and interpretation.

Peyroux started singing at the age of fifteen, when she discovered street musicians in the Latin Quarter in Paris. She joined a group called the Riverboat Shufflers, first passing round the hat, and then singing. At sixteen she joined the The Lost Wandering Blues and Jazz Band, spending two years touring Europe performing songs by the likes of Fats Waller, Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, and others, which provided the basis for her first album, Dreamland.

Dreamland was released in 1996, and gained

American singer and guitarist debut on Decca. During last decade she collected a lot of musical press and often was compared with Billy Holiday (" them both are known as jazz singers but in reality sing blues").

Main reason this album attracted my attention was Marc Ribot playing guitar on it. I can't say I disappointed - it is just another music,different than I expected from Ribot's participation. Not discussing similarities with Billy Holiday I would say Madeleine on this album sounds more like mix of Sheryl Crow and Johnny Mitchell.All music is warm,very acoustic,simple and intimate - but first of all strongly based on Americana (from folk to country). Songs come from Lennon/McCartney and Dylan between others,bigger part are originals though. Using of vintage keyboards and some simplistic electronic devices together is quite successful trick - music sounds timeless being very traditional and quite modern at the same time.

Being only slightly jazz-related this album should attract listener searching for catchy and non-boring relaxed intelligent Americana music. Decca worked hard to give pop-attractiveness to album's sound, but it didn't destroyed release too much. Just nice album for fans of soulful Americana with jazzy flavor.
