Music #Giveaway: The Blue Room by Madeleine Peyroux

Wednesday, February 13, 2013 Posted by Dina N

Have you heard of Madeleine Peyroux? Her vocal style has been compared to Billie Holiday's. This Brooklyn-based jazz singer-songwriter/guitarist is releasing her new album, The Blue Room, on March 5.

About the Album
In The Blue Room, Madeleine re-examines Ray Charles’ classic Modern Sounds In Country And Western Music. Instead of replicating the album, Madeleine and longtime collaborator Larry Klein represent the artistic freedom Ray exhibited, using imagination to break down musical categories and barriers.

What Madeleine and Larry created is a sophisticated album rich in strings, pushing the power of Madeleine’s vocal capabilities – her melody changes, choices of tone and phrasing. The Blue Room explores new ground, showing that like jazz itself, Madeleine is willing to take new chances – reinterpreting songs with an emotion and depth that can’t help but touch the soul.

“I didn’t want to just do a straight forward covers album,” says Madeleine. “When Larry first brought this project to me, I was so moved by what I heard that it truly inspired me to both reinterpret these songs while also merging them with others that I thought fit perfectly.”
Find out more about Madeleine's music on her website, and connect with Madeleine Peyroux on Facebook and Twitter (@mpeyrouxmusic). Check out the video and this fun e-card, as well.

    Don't own anything by her (yet), but beautiful. I've come to admire jazz much more now that both kids have picked up brass instruments and I hear more of it. The Blue Room sounds great.

    I bought one of her CD's knowing nothing about her or her music. I loved it and would love to have another. I like more blues than jazz so I would say her music incorporates some blues.
