11661-3192-2 ****:

Ms. Peyroux comes from a
folk music and Francophile background and possesses a voice that can
best be described as a young Billie Holiday brought up to date. She’s
obviously not trying to be solely a jazz singer, and her choice of
tunes as well as delivery reflect that. Among the sources here are Bob
Dylan, George Cory, William C. Handy, and Leonard Cohen. Peyroux also
plays guitar on many of the tracks, folk-style. Larry Goldings, who
probably was responsible for most of the arrangements, adds immensely
to the overall sound with his stylings on a great variety of
instruments, including B3 and celeste. Not to be missed if you’re a
Holiday fan – and who isn’t?

Tracks: Dance Me to the End of Love, Don’t Wait Too Long, Don’t Cry
Baby, You’re Gonna Make Me Lonesome, When You Go, Between the Bars, No
More, Lonesome Road, J’ai deux Amours, Weary Blues, I’ll Look Around,
Careless Love, This is Heaven to Me.

- John Henry
